really liked it

An advice for those who are going to read this book: read it SLOWLY. There are times (not once or twice, but many times) that I fell asleep while reading this book; but when I decided to read it slower, I began to realize how interesting this book is. I would recommend this book to those who are interested in psychology and those who keep wondering: "Why can't I be more rational?".
