One of the many books trying to teach rationality, some sense of statistics, avoiding logical fallacies. Can't hurt to read one of those now and then. Overall, the well-know things; in the end of the book the writer goes a bit overboard with trying to find some western-thought/eastern-thought syncretism, without too much evidence for it.

Not a bad read, but, to paraphrase Churchill, the good stuff wasn't very original, and the original stuff wasn't very good.
