    Did not meet expectations

    This will make you dumb.

    Just some brief 1-2 page ideas, many of which are plain common sense and others useless at individual level - unless you are chief economist of a country. Would suggest saving your money instead of purchasing this.

    Good book

    This book provides the basics of what we have read in schools in Science. But, with interesting an human sounding words, by scientists. The interesting part? it uses scales, measures, and comparisons that you and I can understand.
