    Why do doctors, generals, civil servants and others consistently make wrong decisions that cause enormous harm to others? Irrational beliefs and behaviours are virtually universal. In this iconoclastic book Stuart Sutherland analyses causes of irrationality and examines why we are irrational, the different kinds of irrationality, the damage it does us and the possible cures.

    Maybe it was the fact that it as written a while ago, but there is little in this book that hasn't been written elsewhere in a more interesting manner recently. It was just kind of stale.

    Pi Patel has been raised in a zoo in India. When his father decides to move the family to Canada and sell the animals to American zoos, everyone boards a Japanese cargo ship. The ship sinks, and 16-year-old Pi finds himself alone on a lifeboat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra with a broken leg, and a 450-pound Bengal tiger. Soon it's just Pi, the tiger, and the vast Pacific Ocean - for 227 days. Pi's fear, knowledge, and cunning keep him alive until they reach the coast of Mexico, where the tiger disappears into the jungle.

    Theresa says: "Best audio of the year for me"
    "Well-written big fun"
    Overall

    The book did start a little slow - description and reviews set high expectations - but the quality of the writing, and of the narration really paid off. The combination of different accents by the narrator, intriguing plot development, delicious philosophical nuances and an intriguing twist at the end made for a thought-provoking but not pretentious work of literature.
