" Extremely interesting topic but the presentation left a lot to be desired in my opinion. The author's writing style seemed wandering and haphazard. Each time I felt he was beginning to convey an interesting insight he'd abruptly end his treatment of the subject or veer off onto a tangent. Additionally, the book's focus on philosophy and the author's constant name dropping of obscure literary figures became tiresome. It struck me as a poorly organized stream of consciousness dump / "look at how cultured I am" piece. To be fair, I do believe this may have been the author's intention to some degree. In the end, there were just enough interesting anecdotes, descriptions of common biases, and descriptions of common logical flaws to hold my attention but they could have been condensed and reorganized into a much more enjoyable book of about 1/3 the length.
