Summary
The title stems from a minor popular culture sensation based on a 1979 article in the academic journal Orthomolecular Psychiatry that described an experiment with 153 healthy young men and blue and pink cardboard. All but 2 of the men were dramatically weaker after staring at the pink cardboard for one minute. Law enforcement officials used pink for holding cell walls and the color was unofficially christened Drunk Tank Pink
Summary
An illuminating look at the way the thoughts we have and the decisions we make are influenced by forces that aren't always in our control
