This was a great book! A little dry because it focused so much on 13 questions; but it quickly went into explanations of why we think and generalized the way we do. It maid me question my judgements of the world view.
Dry and boring
Overall great book, he himself missing major data points of vaccination and world population and some diseases and why they exists still... but I feel he is genuine and his major point is to be critical of "facts" and "numbers" as many times they are wrong and misplaced.
The classic, the news reports on negativity and so the human mind is always on guard watching for bad news it triggers more survival needs to take these "facts" and numbers serious. Well being that facts are still only someones opinion anyway.
slow and repetitive
Brutal monotone narration. Subject matter not much better. How can you lecture and write an entire book about a dozen factoids (that are easily googled, I might add) as if you’ve discovered the Holy Grail? Author full of himself. I could not stay awake after 2 hours of this pain. Wasted $15.
