it was ok
bookshelves: non-fiction

Just not very good. Over simplification of data; lots of biased assumptions; storytelling to support their correlation theories. I think they became cocky after the first book and thought they could write outlandish stuff for the general public. But then they bypassed a lot of scientific rigor and overstated studies' results. The stats in here may impress the lay person, but i couldn't get away with this stuff at my office.
