I found this book after watching a TED talk from the author*. The talk
fascinated me and I bought the book.
The book is a more detailed extension of the above talk. It has the same
main point and many similar material. Of course the book is much more
detailed. My point here is that after spending 18 minutes watching the
talk you can understand if it worth the extra time investment (and money)
on the book.
My personal opinion is that this book is great. It is very well written. It has
excellent citation on academic research on the topic. Moreover, the book
is written in a way that you want to keep reading.
I would recommended to many kind of people. Like the ones who work,
are teachers, or have kids.
