Reviewer: from Los Angeles, CA. United States
I found this book provocative and fun to read, and very useful. The author takes evolutionary concepts and shows how to use them everyday. I thought the part on getting out of a bad relationship or dead end job was amusing and useful. Lots of great examples, this is a self help book that doesn't feel like a self help book.
