13 Things That Don't Make Sense - Michael Brooks Generally I enjoy this sort of book, and this was no exception, but I didn't find myself quite as engaged as I hoped to be. I think it was at its best when it didn't try to draw tenuous connections to popular culture and just told us what we needed to know. Some of the segments, particularly the one on Free Will, also seemed to have too narrow a focus when it came to the evidence; I kept thinking "what about this?" and "what about that?" but the broad areas I was bringing into it were never addressed.Still, my main reason to read things like this, other than for their own sake because I like to know things, is to be inspired in my creative work, and this definitely succeeded on that front.
