"This is one of the few books where I'm glad that I DON'T read the blurbs before I start the book.

From everything that I'd heard about the book, I expected it to be a hard theoretical Sci-Fi like The Matrix.

But it's nothing like that so far. It's highly political, Part One revolving completely around the historical intricacies of Chinese bureaucracy during the socialist period. But it's been fantastic!"

"So far, Principles is proving to be a great mix of both obvious and insightful.

The book is really for results-driven / goal-oriented people. It's about developing a mindset and process for getting what you want out of life.

I'm really enjoying it so far, but I've got one big question I want to see if the book resolves: What if you're not results driven: you want to enjoy the journey or life more than the outcomes?"

I'm a huge fan of Michael Lewis's books. And Behavioral Economics, the subject of this book, interests me more than any other topic he's covered. Still, I found this to be the least satisfying of his books.

If you don't know, Lewis is famous for deliv
