this was a really great listen. this audiobook describes, through social experiments, how we think, act, and ultimately, what guides our decision making process. loved it. will listen again for sure.
Really enjoyed this book. I love the concept of calling accepted beliefs into question to test their validity. Particularly enjoyed his definition of the distinction between social and economic norms! I also thought the narrator made the story work...particularly the dry humour.
Captivating reader, and great content, but a lot of data to consume without visual aids. Very glad I purchased this however.
Covers a lot of theories that I had never heard of before and explain them so that even a Child could understand it.
There is a reason this book started the fascination with Behavioral Economics. Human nature is predictable in many ways and Ariely shows the reader how in many interesting real life experiments.
This is a wonderful work and on the must read list for anyone interested in human behaviour & influence. Read it
Informative, relevant and easy to listen to. The author applied his unique circumstances to engage in a life work that makes a difference. He gives the right amount of personal anecdotes and research stories and has a great sense of humor in his style.
Started off interesting but then took a weird turn, the test ran to reach theories were less than scientific.
It was a breeze to get through this audio book. The narration and clarity of what was being communicated allowed me to focus more on my own interpretation of the text. The addition of how some of these theories can be applied to real life situations allowed me to see the actual changes I can apply to myself.
