I found this to be an amazing book! When a book is educational and entertaining at the same time what more could one ask for? The authors have taken a simple problem, applicable to all spheres of life, the plateau effect. What is it? It is the failure which inevitably follows a period of success. The authors have mentioned a complex reason for it, and solved it using Mathematics, in simple layman's language. What made the book particularly readable for me is the sense of humor with which the authors have presented their explanations. I'm all agog to apply the 'plateau effect's busting' in my life and benefit from it.
