A good fiction title and a nice "feel-good" reading but this book fails to satisfy the very basic rules of logic.
One can propose a generalization of a phenomenon based on unique observations and, depending upon which school of epistemology you belong to, either treat it as a hypothesis that must yet be proven, or adopt it as theory until it is proven wrong (i.e., falsified). But in either case, the existence of a counterexample will shatter the claim. If you are willing to read Rapaille's book from a critical thinking perspective, you will find a counterexample to his theories on almost every page.
I listened to this book in 2008 and it sounded dated to me. The general tone is a bit prophetic and pompous (as most books in this category), but unless you spent the last 5 years in a cave, you already know what's in there. Charlene Li and Josh Bernoff' Groundswell is a better alternative to this book: more encompassing and, at the same time, more informative and concise.
