What a super cool book! This was so different to my expectations of what I'd learn from it. I initially thought it would be a 300+ page list of crazy cool facts and data, and while it could probably squeeze into that definition it was more of a love letter to learning and objective research.

I learned how to strive for a satisfyingly robust response and keep asking questions in the face of seemingly definite outcomes; to scratch away at the surface and look deeper for the real influencers of the variables you're chasing and identifying the difference between those influencing factors and the mere symptoms or responses.

The other ones are on the list!
