really liked it

This was a fun and interesting book, full of little insights and things to think about. The author is a doctor, who also happens to have written columns for a couple of on-line magazines, and several of the chapters began as such columns-- which is about how the book reads. It's like sitting down and reading a fairly interesting magazine article, which you may find yourself thinking about later, or mentioning in a conversation, but the book itself doesn't really have any clear objective or agenda--just a collection of interesting thoughts and tidbits. I got this book for entertainment value to take on a vacation, and was not disappointed.

Danielle Yeah, I felt the same way. Did I say that in my review? But, overall, very entertaining, and made me say, "Huh...interesting" several times.
