's review

really liked it
bookshelves: internet, audio-book

a brilliant theory and rather good book. the 3 stars goes for the theory and 1 star goes for the general content. why not 5 stars? well requires strong mathematical mind and could be presented with more simplified paradigms. otherwise was so eager to absorb it that last week was mainly invested in this book. Fascinating.

5.0% "Now this book will capture you from the first pages and it comes from a Nobel winner so this is exciting to see how it develops. slow thinking = experience, fast = intuition. I'm excited about this one as it might get 4-5 stars at the end."
