1995 Basic Books American paperback edition. 161 pages long.


Bought it second-hand in a bookstore in San Francisco (Green Apple Books where Clement Street meets 6th Avenue) in July 2012, along with The Dragons of Eden.

Started reading it mid February 2013, after finishing How to Lie with Statistics. Finished it on the 14th of February, in bed. It was short and not very illuminating, but I think it was written for wider audiences than his previous books, so not really for me. Not bad, though.
