Review by: Joe Da Silva on Oct. 31, 2012 :
This book is well written and also seems well researched too (by evidence of a lot of footnotes pointing to other information you can follow-up on).

I was rather fascinated by several of the plain English examples like "Survivorship" and "What Goes Up Does Not Necessarily Come Down".

I could see how similar in which several of the example situations would fit for myself and other people I know.

This book is one of those must-read type of books worth reading and recommending.
