This book copies/steals the general format and concepts of past books on the same subject (e.g., Black Swan). The problem is the authors just aren't at the same intellectual caliber as the others. Many of the long stories, aren't that interesting and come from the "Academy for Proving the Incredibly Obvious." Other interpretations of contrived class-room games are just plain bizarre (e.g., bids on $20 bill above $20 come from poorly designed game where people don't just cut their losses--author ties this in a tendentious way to U.S. in Iraq).
