Lazy? Or Clever?

I noticed a post on Lifehacker about a book called Moving Heavy Things. The book wasn’t what caught my attention, it was a quote in the post: “…the cleverest people are often the laziest: they are always looking for an easier way.”

So am I lazy because I’m clever? Or just clever because I’m lazy?

Also, while looking at this book on Amazon, I noticed a couple new features. There’s stats on the most common words or how difficult the text is. It reminds me of stats you can find in Word when trying to count the number of words in the document. You even get how many words you get per ounce and dollar. This book comes 686 words per ounce and 590 words per dollar. I looked at a couple other books, and didn’t notice the same stats.
