I've started reading it. The first chapter gets into the philosophy of science - empiricism and the problems with defining science and determining how we know something is true. It's been really thought-provoking so far.
it's okay to say "I don't know"

Definitely one for my Christmas list. Pleased to see that it’s available as an audiobook as well as print
