There are some interesting ideas here, but I found Gallagher's style offputting and eventually unreadable. I can't quite say why, except to note that she manages to take a subject that's inherently quite interesting, and reduce it to dull prose with very few anecdotal illustrations, which are crucial to this genre of pop science writing.
