it was ok

This would have earned a higher rating for me if I didn't find the author incredibly arrogant and annoying at times. It started off good, then you're inundated by excessive examples related to the same concept. Pretty much all of them are by the author or friends/students of the author. It felt very nepotistic. I also noticed the author LOVED to point out when he knew that a theory was flawed far before those Nobel prize winners did (which is a concept he covered in the book and pointed out we tend to overrate our previous knowledge. He somehow didn't notice he was doing exactly that). All in all, the information was interesting, could have been much shorter with a stronger impact.
