This is a regular horn blowing autiobiography of the author. He is so self-impressed the rest of the world won't have to be. He makes a couple of interesting points and in a bit of self deprecation points out there is value in the world that contradicts his own views. The author tries to introduce "scientific principles" to rationalize his own failures of moral character. It does bother him at least a little bit that he was paid large sums of money for ruining other peoples lives. The learned optimism would be fine for a totality if one subscribes to the "don't worry be happy" theory of life. At $1.99 the read is worth the price.
