Paradox is always interesting. The myth of more is better informs this (American) culture so deeply that messages that this book delivers are very important.
Contrary to a previous reviewer, I found Watzlawick's style to be light and amusing. It does not read like an English paper, but rather a series of jokes, anecdotes, and explanations that I always found entertaining.
I'd put it right next to Waiting for Godot.
Goodman
All of Watzlawick's book are very insightful, clearly written and transforming.

I bought this book because I had to do a paper on this author for my Psychology class. I learned a great deal from writing the paper and this book is by far my favorite one that I bought to do the paper. His ideas are interesting and humorous as well. I still remember certain parts of this book after having read it about 3 years ago so thats a plus. Sometimes in my conversations with others I bring up some of his points that really do make a lot of sense and are very enlightening. I really thought I would be bored reading a book such as this but it was not boring at all, I had a lot of fun doing this paper. Did I get a fabulous grade on the paper? No, but the fact that I learned a lot was enough of an advantage for me.

This books reads like a first year english paper. The author is more interested in exploring his nascent writing skills, that he forgets that someone will actually have to read it.
If only the author actually got to the point and described what he calls "Ultra Solutions" in a manner that wasn't so annoying, this would be an ok book. The content is potentially interesting, but is wrapped in so much fluff that I found it impossible to finish the book.
