Good book if you want to be defrauded of a credit. It's advertised as a study of a peculiar human psychological phenomena, but is actually nothing but a tendentious screed.
Might have well been "A Concise History of the Trayvon Martin Case" by Rev. Al Sharpton.
I found his sanctimonious preface particularly noteworthy.
I was most disappointed to find this book was more of a catalog than something that works well in the audio format. A series of quasi-connected bullet-points does NOT make for a good listen.

OMG do I wish I had my credit back.
