"Not so good"
There are a lot of books out there on this topic. This is fairly average. Narrator too posh for me.
"Great insights and great research!"
I enjoyed the book even more the more I listened. There were so many clever ways to test ideas, and so much knowledge of how we are as humans. A really great way to get to know more of ourselves and our nexts.
"I love Dan Ariely. A truly out of the box thinker!"
Maybe but I have good recall and I doubt the second listen would be as intriguing as the first.
"Wonderfully engaging insights into your own mind"
There were so many bit where I felt i needed to stop and think about how this impacts my daily life that I'm sure reading it again would reveal much that I've forgotten.
It has similarities to "Intuition Pumps" by Dan Dennett, but is more fun to listen to.
The many examples of "the decoy effect"
"An eye opening account of human irrationality"
I really enjoyed this book as Arliely not only discusses how people are irrational, but demonstrates that these behaviours can accurately be predicted and exploited by keener minds.
this book is well written and read and you often find yourself immersed in self reflection and soon gain a desire to undo those irrational traits that we all have. i often find myself listening to this book every 4 or so months
"A bit thin"
Gave up on this after about an hour. Doesn't really cover as much useful material as Cialdini
Excellent book with a fresh approach to business psychology. If you are looking for something different to the usual business books, this one is entertaining and insightful. Worth a read.
This book is truly a 5 star, I couldn't put it down. Every idea put forward is backed up with clear concise experiments. This is not a load of waffle like so many other books I have read.
Wow. Very interesting and of practical application too.
