This is a well written explanation of why I'm fearful of a great deal of unlikely scenarios and nonchalant about the extraordinarily dangerous. Even more, the author allows me to understand and sometimes reprogram the collective mind in my workplace and at home to better reflect that which is truly important and that which is not.
The author reveals the "man behind the curtain" in this book. I loved it and highly recommend.
Very interesting and recommended for anyone that has a brain.
Many good examples and very clear explanations of great works such an Cahnman and Tversky's works on perception.
At times a bit repetitive and sometimes falls in love with the ideas a bit too much but in general pretty balanced.
I really enjoyed this book. It presented the material in an innovative way that made it easy to understand
My only real complaint is that it comes off as a little too cynical about politicians and big business that peddle in fear. The reference to cognitive dissonance doesn't really mitigate that in my view
Very much enjoyed this book after picking it up during one of Audible's sales without any particular expectations. Probably the best deal I've gotten here and has made me think about the psychology a little bit more than I had before.
The narrator is horribly annoying, so no matter how good this book might be, I can't tolerate the narrator long enough to listen to it. Highly disappointing and unnecessary.
