Excellent information that ought to open our eyes to the constant and deliberate manipulation moving us every day. Great tips for parenting, teaching, and selling. I don't agree with all of Ariely's conclusions, and he can be too preachy, but it is all good to know. Great narrator.
One of the best and broadest books on the subjects I've read/listened to. Statistics, examples and real world comparisons make for an easy to follow and memorise experience. Well written and well narrated.. Thank you for the pleasure.
This audio book presents a wealth of information about human nature. How we think we are rational. How our behavior, as demonstrated in a series of clever experiments is oh so predictably irrational.
The author and the reader do a great job of keeping the story engaging and fun. I will recommend this to my friends.
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.
