Publisher's Summary

Have you ever...

  • Invested time in something that, in hindsight, just wasn't worth it?
  • Paid too much in an eBay auction?
  • Continued to do something you knew was bad for you?
  • Sold stocks too late, or too early?
  • Taken credit for success, but blamed failure on external circumstances?
  • Backed the wrong horse?

These are examples of what the author calls cognitive biases, simple errors all of us make in day-to-day thinking. But by knowing what they are and how to identify them, we can avoid them and make better choices: Whether in dealing with personal problems or business negotiations, trying to save money or earn profits, or merely working out what we really want in life - and strategizing the best way to get it.

Already an international bestseller, The Art of Thinking Clearly distills cutting-edge research from behavioral economics, psychology, and neuroscience into a clever, practical guide for anyone who's ever wanted to be wiser and make better decisions. A novelist, thinker, and entrepreneur, Rolf Dobelli deftly shows that in order to lead happier, more prosperous lives, we don't need extra cunning, new ideas, shiny gadgets, or more frantic hyperactivity - all we need is less irrationality.

Simple, clear, and always surprising, this indispensable audiobook will change the way you think and transform your decision making - at work, at home, every day. From why you shouldn't accept a free drink to why you should walk out of a movie you don't like, from why it's so hard to predict the future to why you shouldn't watch the news, The Art of Thinking Clearly helps solve the puzzle of human reasoning.

    "Challenge your intuition!"

    You may not agree with all the discussion areas, but the author provides excellent food for thought....so good I am going back for seconds (and about to listen again).

    "Clearly thought it was a good read"

    Lists common fallacies in our thought patterns we fall victim to daily and gives advice how to avoid them. It is a great book for leadership engaged in strategy as well as negotiations.

    "Some good information, but basically just a list."
    What could Rolf Dobelli have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    There was no underlying theory or story. It really just felt like a list of various logical fallacies and how to avoid them. Yawn...

    "Insightful beyond what is usuallly obvious"

    I like how the book is laid out by our common logical fallacies, with anecdotes, interesting facts, and good analysis. I also like how it approaches the issue of succumbing to our instincts, and that it's ultimately impossible, but we become better for trying.

    "Great content but maybe better in paperback"

    The book lists all kinds of fallacies in every day thinking. It is an excellent book. The only reason I would recommend it in paperback is that it may be easier to refer back to certain sections afterwards.
