Addendum to Overrated / Underrated

It seems I left a potentially misleading section in my recent post, "Overrated / Underrated 2010".

With regards to ideals of beauty being overrated, I meant to say that there was more than one way to look attractive and that different people have different tastes.

I didn't mean to say that I wasn't into the classically gorgeous one-in-a-million supermodel look, i.e. my girlfriend's look, because I totally am. Tall thin girls with angular faces and pouty lips are not overrated, just rare.

Yeah! You've got to be real careful of rating any aspect of women or one will come along and do you a lot worse harm than skinny jeans will.

Thanks for the book. It has a lot more to it than just a self help guide to happiness like the name might imply. Explores the whole questions of what motivates us, subverts us, and why we behave as we do. A good book for discussion. I'll recommend it to our book group.
