Many of our ideas about the world are based more on feelings than facts, sensibilities than science, and rage than reality. We gravitate toward ideas that make us feel comfortable in areas such as religion, politics, philosophy, social justice, love and sex, humanity, and morality. We avoid ideas that make us feel uncomfortable. This avoidance is a largely unconscious process that affects our judgment and gets in the way of our ability to reach rational and reasonable conclusions. By understanding how our mind works in this area, we can start embracing uncomfortable ideas and be better informed, be more understanding of others, and make better decisions in all areas of life.
Some uncomfortable ideas entertained in this book:
Facts don't care about feelings. Science isn't concerned about sensibilities. And reality couldn't care less about rage.
Prepare for a bumpy ride.

It is so difficult to think rationally about anything in today's American political climate. This book is a breath of fresh reasoning. Very much appreciated, highly recommended.
