liked it

I learned a lot from this book. For example, I know that since I ended it on a good note I have a pretty favorable impression of it, regardless of how I felt for most of the time. I also know that my perception of the book is altered because of "anchoring"—it reminded me a lot of The Righteous Mind, which I liked much better, so I am docking stars non-objectively. Overall, the message of realizing how small details can alter our perspectives and decisions is a good one, but I think 100+ of the pages were unnecessarily verbose.
