"Great book. One of the best I've read recently"
This is really an exceptionally insightful book with many practical examples of how to improve our lives and those of other people by being more rational in our everyday life. A must read to all intelligent creatures on this planet!
"Insightful, very clearly explained."
Topics clearly explained. The reading voice not quite aligned to the topic. However, a very interesting book indeed.
"Excellent book on how humans act irrationally"
This books contains some excellent studies/experiments that tell how we act irrationally.
As an entrepreneur this information was very helpful.
"Surprising revelations and insight."
A truly fascinating book, the reader really bringing the humour of the writer to life.
Great at shining a light on the misunderstandings of our decision making process.
This book captures and explains several interesting concepts, in what I would describe as, cognitive psychology, although the author is keener to label it Economic Psychology.
There are other books that try explain more the Why, rather than the what, particularly Think Fast, Think Slow. Therefore, this is a very accessible good introduction to the subject.
"Read this and you will understand why you do stuff"
Most definitely. This is a book to study not just to listen to once.
If you want to understand more about human behaviour, listen to (or read) this book
"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"
