part b
dear author
through out this book you have supported your theorums whith many variouse examples and studys to show how they work and why. i think that is part of why this book is so wonderful and engadging. it engadges you by bringing you in and helping you apply it everything you do and why that happens. i am looking forwart to reading your other book the tipping point i think it will also be quite similar to this one because they are both phycology type books that explan simple things in peoples life. i think it will also give me a different way of looking at desicions cause i am already terrible at making desicions even very small mondan desicions that i must make ever day and i think your book could help. thank you for writing this book it is mesmorising.
