An entertaining, but also kind of overly simplistic read. More than anything, reading this book felt more like reading someone's personal blog.

Have to give the author credit for exploring scientific studies in the areas of behavioral science, physics, etc. and then trying to explain the concepts in plain English to lay people. Instead what he winds up doing is making snarky comments and what he believes are witty quips. The scientific concepts are interesting, but many for many of them his explanation is confusing and doesn't come across clearly. At times it felt like a book meant for middle schoolers.

Overall entertaining, but entirely forgettable.
