Format: Kindle Edition
When I reviewed the first edition of this book, I wrote," Unassuming, universally written with sharp wit and charm, the first pages catch and you want to read on. Although Janabi never professes to be an expert... "

In this, the special extended version of his book, I want to take that back. Janabi is something of an expert.

In this reworked version of "Random Rationality", the book has more meat, more substance, more catch - this second edition elevates what was an interesting and entertaining read to greatness - I cannot put my finger on what I didn't read before, but now this is a masterclass on thought in way the first edition was the thesis. This book is as good as (the oft-quoted by Janabi) Carl Sagan's "Pale Blue Dot" (For a real piece of existentialism at work, go for the "universe" section. It blew my mind a little), or Nassim Nicholas Taleb's "The Black Swan". This book should be up there on the shelves of every library, filed under "Epistemology". Students and entrepreneurs should read it. Someone should vote Janabi into some kind of culture-changing council. I actually believe this kind of thinking might just save our species, might just save this planet.

The introduction, which before led nicely into the subjects now heightens the reader to receive the thoughts Janabi poses: not as a lecture, as some books of this ilk tend to churn, but as conversation: he is an accomplished thinker. It comes as no surprise that Janabi is also an experienced photographer because he really sees the world for what it is; through a macro lens not many of us have in our possession.

And now each topic shines in succinct chapters.

This is an excellent introduction to a wide range of topics. It's very informative, witty and well written. The author took a risk by committing to such a hefty scope, but he pulls it off quite eloquently. For those who enjoy a challenge, this book will provide one; for those who wish to stimulate old dendrites, this book will do that as well. It has been written in a style that will allow the novice reader to take away a solid foundation in each of the topics, but it also offers more knowledgeable readers with a welcomed refresher. Most of us aren't experts in every field, so no matter who you are, you will be the better after reading this.

I highly recommend this book to EVERYONE. If learning something new is one of your goals, this book will help you accomplish it.

A brilliant, far-ranging, deeply penetrating snap-shot of modern reality. It's rare to find an author capable of successfully knitting together such a diverse group of subjects, and even rarer to do so with conversational wit and sometimes profound observations. If you enjoyed Bill Bryson's, A Short History of Nearly Everything, then Random Rationality should be the next book on your reader.

this was an ok book. I was disappointed, in that I hoped for more. I had to struggle sometimes to keep interested. I still recommend it, as it is pretty good reading if you are interested.
