    Our brains are marvels, hard-wired by millions of years of evolution to boast a number of mental shortcuts, biases, and tricks that allow us to negotiate our complicated lives without overthinking every choice and decision we have to make. Unfortunately, those ancient shortcuts don't always work to our advantage in our modern lives - when we don't also think slowly and rationally, those hard-wired habits can trip us up. This intriguing book helps us to understand how our minds are predisposed to think about the world....

    Story

    This book lost me about halfway though. It's basically a list of different types of heuristics and then summarizes studies that back up the definition of each type. Summary after summary after summary of studies, research experiments. There is almost not practical information that I can actually put to good use. This is just a big collection of study abstracts.
