She references a lot of other sources within the book but just barely touches on them, not really giving the insight of the studies that I was hoping to receive. The science and psychology in this book is rather very light mentioning only the repetition of dopamine, serotonin, testosterone, and estrogen in relation to the four personality types -- at times they are given room to variable, but are repeated so often as characters that the traits are glossed over and come out as cliche or trope. And I get the feeling that some of the information presented is a bit dated.
But in all it was a passively fun read, I can take away some small portions of knowledge after having read it. If you're not looking for something in depth, intense, or really that informative then this book will be a fun afternoon read but probably forgettable.
