It's a bit of a "soft" science book, if you know what I mean. S. Hawking fans and the like will scoff at such stuff but it's full of interesting thoughts on how people work even though none of it can really be proven! Funny how they still call it 'science.' Kinda like 'political science.' That came off a bit harsh. Anyway, take Sociology if you're in University. IT's chock full of the school's bangin-est girls and you'll probably get to read this amusing book. WIN!!
