    Use the power of creative thinking to become more attractive with a makeover of your mind! It doesn't need a high IQ, or reams of knowledge, or a great personality. All it needs is creativity, imagination and empathy - all techniques that anyone can learn. Here Edward de Bono, world-famous for changing the way people think, shows you in a clear, practical language how to impress people with simple conversational tactics. Want to be irresistable? Then follow de Bono's advice.

    Where does How to Have a Beautiful Mind rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The book focuses mostly on social interactions and how we can gain knowledge, share this knowledge and develop our thinking skills just as we can develop our physical skills.

    The book seems a bit incomplete for it's title. I expected some exercises for analytic thinking, for creativity, even meditation and so on, because the title led me to believe that it covers more topics related to thinking.

    Overall it's a good book and I recommend it.

  • You Are Not So Smart: Why You Have Too Many Friends on Facebook, Why Your Memory Is Mostly Fiction, and 46 Other Ways You're Deluding Yourself

    An entertaining illumination of the stupid beliefs that make us feel wise. You believe you are a rational, logical being who sees the world as it really is, but journalist David McRaney is here to tell you that you're as deluded as the rest of us. But that's OK - delusions keep us sane. You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of self-delusion. It's like a psychology class, with all the boring parts taken out, and with no homework. Based on the popular blog of the same name, You Are Not So Smart collects more than 46 of the lies we tell ourselves everyday.

    Would you listen to You Are Not So Smart again? Why?

    I enjoyed listening to this audio book and it sums up a lot of modern psychology ideas with examples. I came to notice some of the biases in the people around me and also some of my own. I recommend this book to everyone who wants to get a bit closer to "reality".


    What other book might you compare You Are Not So Smart to and why?

    Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman is a really good book for that covers some of the same issues as this one, but in a more elaborate way.
