Covers much the same ground as Gladwell's Outliers. Not as well written as Outliers, but with more practical advice about how to get better.
There is one guaranteed way to make me stop reading any romance novel. That is for the nominal "hero" to bully women and make them afraid of physical violence, especially when one of those women is the nominal "heroine" who will undoubtedly turn around later and fall in love with him. I'm sad to say that this book falls into that category.
I loved Freakonomics but this was a disappointment. They are trying so hard to shock and be edgy that it gets in the way of the interesting insights that made the first book so delightful. This book still has flashes of those, but not nearly so frequently.
