Evidently a bizarre book. As S said, why are you reading self-help books. If they had an emoticon for emphatic-LOL.
Maybe I am biased towards it’s Google roots. Maybe I was intrigued that it was written by an ex-engineer. Maybe I was truly impressed by the reviews and accolades – it was praised by many Presidents, which is unheard of to me. It seemed to mean something. It didn’t seem to be a book for people who need a mental crutch or shoulder. It seemed to be more of a ‘be a better happier person’, without involving dieties, natural forces, shifting winds, incense, ashrams, yoga.
I read the first chapter. I admit I kept skimming and had to actively slow myself down. One line really caught my eye – “…because two minutes is about the attention span of a child, and an engineer.” It is a freaking struggle for me to sit still and not think about anything for two whole minutes. Yes it is. Haha. And that’s when I knew, this book ain’t so bad.
And I do like psychology data.
