I've gotten short explanations about the things in this book, but it was illuminating to learn more about the. Probably not for the Ph.D., but for the curious layman it was worth the time and credit. The author also presented it in a humorous and compelling fashion.
Great book that will undoubtedly shift the way you think and will transform the way you interpret things.
Anyone who might be involved in the assessment, selection, hiring, or recruitment of people could benefit greatly from this book
Psychology and Biology nerd. Chemistry enthusiast. Fan of good research-based science books, comedies and crime.
I really enjoyed this audio program. The narrator has a great voice for presenting this sort of material. The studies presented are from a wide range of areas in psychology but are all classics in their fields. While I was familiar with much of this material, I still found it a useful refresher with interesting angles.
At times the information gave you a different perspective on what you know/think you know. But the way it was presented seemed very matter a fact.
Overall decent/could have been better.
Lots of intriguing info- thought provoking, and often written & delivered in a clever or funny way. If you're interested in the bizarre workings of human psychology, you'll enjoy this.
Makes you think!
It's not actually a story, but a series of explanations on common misconceptions and fallacies we experience unconsciously every day. They are written (or told, in this case) with welcome bits of humor and irony, that help you realize that, well, you are not so smart! Recommended!
