A well-crafted spy novel that’s apparently heavy on the sex, some reviewers complained that aspects of the story were clichéd and disjointed, but many praised the pacing and the interesting characters.
One or two of the facts were on the questionable side (though it is cleared up in the appendix at the end of the book), but on the whole this is an engaging book about how habits are formed and, more importantly, broken.

A very accessible book on the merits and limits of modern-day Psychiatry, though some reviewers found Ronson’s tone and writing style a bit jarring and not fitting with the subject matter.
On the whole it is an important, readable, and interesting book about judgment and decision making, but even some of the author’s diehard fans found small portions of this book hard to work through.
