Don’t know anything about medicine, blood tests, Silicon Valley... but you don’t need to. This is a character driven story of monumental fraud and the ability of a charmer to deceive with a pleasant surface over substance. The shame all those people should feel.. the lawyers whose actions were based on their own hope of windfall stock and the terrible realisation that ultimately its the tax payers of America who will pay... Murdoch’s $100 million loss just for a start.. is an indictment on so many aspects of American society. Loved it.

Unbearable saccharine voice. Mumbo jumbo oogedy boogedy.

I found the readers voice unbearably grating. All of the honeys and sweeties were just too much. However I pushed on.. willing to use the ‘work’ if it ‘works.’ I find it is quite a lot like NA and AA. Where there is a big focus on taking personal responsibility for everything. This works for people who have spent their whole life playing the victim, when they are really responsible. But what about actual victims? I’m not so sure how good it is for them. I have known a lot of people who behave badly and take no responsibility but they also would never bother reading or doing the work on a book like this... also like NA and AA, where the worst people are the ones not actually doing the responsibility taking... to me it seems like the ones who SHOULD be.. don’t. And the ones who DON’T.. should but never will. I think, as others have said.. might be good for people with minor problems, or relatively benign issues... but serious abuse from childhood? I don’t think it’s appropriate for that. Not qualified or educated. The epiphany of a woman. This book is the epitome of New Age. Can work, just like a placebo can.

Excellent- science rocks

Excellent, informative, scientific, balanced, not hateful or cruel but also, not bogus. Just right; like the temperature of the baby bear’s porridge. Points out the logical reasoning flaws of some activists arguments, but also, points out that historically ‘outlier’ people have been poorly treated. Just because something is not biological doesn’t mean we should be mean or not treat people fairly. I Particularly like the highlighting of the difference between arts theory and scientific theory. Science theories start as a hypothesis, then an experiment (preferably validly constructed) and ends with a theory to explain the results. Arts theories are more: “I reckon that blah blah blah..... and I will back up this theory of mine by referencing Dr Me (my own book, written last year) as well as the book I wrote in ‘96, and ‘84 and that bloke Dr Lucky Fields..”
