User Review  - Sean Goh - Goodreads

Still not very sure what the point of the book was. You hit one home run in the big leagues, it doesn't make you a home run hitter.. To make one (racist) comment doesn't make you a racist. Point ... Read full review

Review: How Pleasure Works: The New Science of Why We Like What We Like

User Review  - Nancy McKinley - Goodreads

Competent but not pleasurable. The writing starts out strong but weakens with every chapter culminating in a lackluster finish that was better left unsaid; as nothing really was said. A display of facts and not much more. I am glad it is over....on to the next! Read full review
