This book did not deliver on any of it's 'promises' I am so disappointed I wish I could get my money back! The method to discovering the 'blind spot' is not a method, the author suggests using 9 steps to verify, check for bias', see if they are using a wide range of resources etc. double checking the experts your relying on in searching for finding an answer to your problem. I learned that in undergrad school. This book promised many things and delivered on none of it. SAVE YOUR MONEY!
