This was a most unusual book for me to read. I usually do not enjoy the non-fiction types of books unless they are biographies or memoirs but this definitely piqued my interest from the first page. It was filled with facts and insights that were presented in such a way as to actually be simple to comprehend. The author did an astounding job gathering the information and presenting it in a way that was both factual, accurate and completely understandable to the average reader. I expected this to be a very dry and bland boo that would only appeal to the science minded people but I was surprised by how much I ended up enjoying it. I plan to pass along my recommendation to others of my friends and family.
