This is not light reading/listening. Unlike some of the other reviews I found that the author dissected our myths about what we perceive, feel and predict with surgical thoroughness, perhaps too much so. He admits that he is a fan since youth of optical illusions, and the book is a methodical catalog of psychological illusions. The book is complete to a fault.
A better title might be "What you thought you knew but really don't".
So is it useful/helpful? Yes, if you are not looking for specific advice, but could benefit from warnings about how to not deceive yourself.
As I was listening I found I wanted to look at a written copy, as I had difficulty keeping the model he was constructing in my head. Might be the kind of audiobook that later on you go back re-read from a library hardcover.
