47 concepts of human behavior that make up the basis of a good deal of what we do. Presented in a factual but light manner that makes it a very interesting listen. Well spoken and interesting, This will be one audiobook I will certainly listen to again. If you want some insight into human behavior without the boring bits this the book to get.
Very entertaining and a fun listen. I highly recommend. I have questioned many stories I recall or have been told since listening to this audiobook.
You Are Not So Smart - It's like listening to Chuck Yeager, mellow Southern, comforting. We have no control, but I feel good about it, 'cause of the Voice.
I think so...
The chapters are perfect to listen and understand.

Know your mind, and become smarter.
The anecdotes are all familiar -- they've happened to me or I've seen them happen to others. Hearing a logical, scientific explanation was mind-opening. Now I want everyone I love (and many folks I just like a lot) to hear this book, too. I will definitely listen to it more than once.
Also, this book alerted me to the author's website and blog, where there are many more examples of where human thinking goes astray.
The author clearly loves his subject, and knows a lot about it. The writing was clear, direct, and very entertaining. The narrator did an excellent job, and was a good match for this book.

dont make a film of this book because it doesnt translate
Retired with a passion for nonfiction. To find out how my views compare or diverge with respect to what's known.

A book that summarizes a great deal of recent research into how we think. It points out the shortcuts our brain takes in perception and memory.
The examples it gives do make you question yourself and some of your own actions... but that is a good thing (right??).
I like the fact that the language is modern and hip. It makes it more entertaining to listen to. It is funny and inspires self-reflection. I also like that he finishes each chapter with a little snippet of self-help; emphasizing that we are not slaves to the autocratic parts of our brains.
Yes, of course, very in depth study of human nature....
Listening of things that we all have done or do...
Well done, pleasant voice and carries the tone very well.
