After "Antifragile" was such a breakthrough for me (personally) I didn't expect NNT's next book to make such a huge impression on myself. I was intrigued by the topic (one of my fav ones), but didn't want to fall into being hyper-optimistic.

Fortunately the book appears to be a great, positive surprise - it's brilliant, fascinating & (especially the 1st part) peppered with thought-provoking examples & striking one-liners. As I was not new to the topic (of skin in the game), I didn't expect many controversies - I believe I have my opinion already formed, so I was merely looking for its confirmation. But it doesn't work like that with NNT (& I should really know that by now btw ...) - even if the book is already read, I already know I'll keep getting back to it as there are some things that still keep popping back up in my personal considerations.

Highly recommended - great book for people who like to think independently.
