What makes the essays painful to read is that the author tries to be funny with side quips in essays where such a personal characteristic is probably lacking. I decided to read this book because I found it sitting on a shelve in my dad’s bedroom. If you are thinking of reading it, don’t make the same mistake.

I enjoyed my read, but I don’t think grain lot of the knowledge in the book will stick with me; maybe the parts about body language when flirting or eating within the sp Pop science books aren’t usually my thing, but this one had its interesting points.
