A lot of scientific and historical facts are explained in this book, which makes it a bit boring to read, a fact not helped by the extremely dry writing style. My brain went autopilot and skipped many paragraphs.
There’s nothing smart about how the author tries to stitch together too many concepts and topics in this short book. His ideas ended up scattered all over the place. Some of the points raised by the author may be sound, but the way he executes his arguments makes them sound tenuous at best.
I would have written a longer review, but I wanted to see if the science of doing nothing has legs.
