    1. This book has lots of advice on making friends, but almost no discussion of the science behind that advice.


    2. Highly entertaining. Kind of liking having someone describe in detail the mechanics of how to tie your shoelaces or button your buttons. Gives you a new appreciation for all the social behaviors you engage in without conscious thought. Remember to step back from the doorway after you invite people in!
