    I havent finished it but its much more focused on Cus, some materials were repeated from his first book. I would only recommend it to Tyson fans only.

    "Ok - let me start right here. This is no "The Martian: The Sequel". It is a completely different story done very differently."

    I started in on the Alexander Hamilton biography by Ron Chernow. My wife got to go to the musical a week and a half ago. I get to read the book. Hmpf!

    these reviews are spot on!
    This book is incredibly repetitive and has no depth. Here is everything you need to know in a few short bullets - what if I told you there are famous people pushing the limits of the mind - these people take drugs - these people go to Burning Man - these people have surprising connections - sometimes these people wear "bio hacking" devices that you don't have enough money to buy (repeat)

    I've been trying to get through a tough book for the better parts of two years now. Trying to tackle it again because a friend has recently been given a grim prognosis.

    Predictably Irrational, Revised and Expanded Edition: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions [COLOR=#555555 !important]Paperback

    [COLOR=#555555 !important] April 27, 2010[/COLOR]

    [/COLOR]
    by Dr. Dan Ariely [COLOR=#555555 !important](Author)

    Why do our headaches persist after we take a one-cent aspirin but disappear when we take a fifty-cent aspirin? Why do we splurge on a lavish meal but cut coupons to save twenty-five cents on a can of soup?
    When it comes to making decisions in our lives, we think we're making smart, rational choices. But are we?
    In this newly revised and expanded edition of the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller, Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. From drinking coffee to losing weight, from buying a car to choosing a romantic partner, we consistently overpay, underestimate, and procrastinate. Yet these misguided behaviors are neither random nor senseless. They're systematic and predictablemaking us predictably irrational.

    A tough read made more grueling as I was at school with Alex.
