Repeats too much. Weird style
This book repeats the same ideas over and over, so much, that at times I thought I was reading a few pages back. It has the value of introducing science to realms where science is needed, but the same ideas could had been said with elegance in a much smaller format (but maybe this would not have ended as a book). The style was also not of my liking either. This is the first time I came across a work of this author, I can imagine him as an entertaining, engaging speaker, probably controversial, but engaging nonetheless. However, I have the impression that he literally translated what he was thinking, like he were addressing an audience, straight to writing, and the outcome is not good. Some phrases are just too long, pretending to be humorous they verge to the point of ridiculousness. Interesting book, some segments are valuable but repetitious and of a style that some will enjoy, but many will not.
