One of the many great things about this book is how un-mysterious it is. To quote from my blog, "[in] the authors’ Preface, ... they write, “We believe in the existence of that legendary totem figure of all academic authors, the intelligent, well-informed layman who wants to find out more about the world in which he lives.” Amen to that. The authors succeed at writing in an engaging and accessible manner. My summary is just a poor attempt at summarizing a fascinating, elegant series of experiments told in crystal-clear, literary prose. For those of you who are interested in learning more, I highly recommend curling up on a couch some afternoon with The Unresponsive Bystander: Why Doesn’t He Help?. If you do, you’ll be glad that you did."
