A book which made me think, and think again.... I think I got a little tired towards the end, but it's groundbreaking and some of the ideas in it will make me rethinking how I think about good and bad events. I probably won't reread it, but would recommend to a friend... if they were the kind to appreciate a storyline that's about thinking through situations, rather than a 'the hero wins' type book.
