I learned about this New York Times best-seller just today, from the review it received on the supernerd haven, Slashdot.
And I actually purchased the book (via 1-click, no less!) without having even read the review… if that tells you how much I probably need this book.
Anyway, I went back and skimmed the Slashdot review after my order was placed and it looks like the money will not be wasted.
Now I just need to find the time to read it!
