Helpful Score: 1
Very interesting hypotheses and summary of relevant data describing how and why Asians and Westerners, or rather those from interconnected and those of independent societies, think differently. If read with an open mind, it forces one to reevaluate cognitive assumptions of which one may have been previously unaware. The text also helps to puts into perspective a lot of societal ills that may result from cognitive errors.
