Publisher's Summary

The 25 cognitive biases you need to know!

Want to get ahead in life? Well, you've come to the right place. Learn these 25 cognitive biases today!

Have you ever found yourself wondering why you make the decisions you make? Why you seem to like the same things as others or why you believe only what you want to believe?

Well, it may be because certain cognitive biases are working - and they're slowly taking over your brain. Now, this really isn't something good, because it means you are somehow not in control of yourself anymore.

Cognitive biases also begin to blind you. They make you believe in certain things that could cloud your judgment - and that's why you do the things you do.

However, there are ways for you to fight these cognitive biases - and you'll find them all right here!

With the help of this book, you'll learn about the 25 cognitive biases, what they're about, and how to stop being their victim!

Very quick hit on topics

The topic should be interesting. Book wasn't meaty enough for my tastes. Probably ok if you're only looking for basics.

Exceptionally lacking any critical analysis

I am unable to recommend this audio book. Exceptionally lacking any depth of the subject.

insanity awaits

I turned it off after 67 seconds. I couldn't take the sound of her voice. I tried again the next day and almost slid into a dark insanity..... that voice.....

disappointed.

the outline of each cognitive bias is weak, and in some cases inaccurate. having studied cognitive bias I was hoping to get a reminder with some new examples.

No value. Waste of time

Condescending tone throughout. Author treats you like a child teaching you how to solve all your so called biases.

I heard this book is used in Harvard marketing classes so I thought it would be worth it - but just a load of chicken soup nonsense with no research.

Especially love the "conservatism bias" - the author tells you that if your politics are conservative then you are suffering from a cognitive bias. Funny there was no mention of a liberal bias though haha

Written and read at a kindergarten level

The information is practical but obvious and is read in a ultra dumbed down way. I would not recommend.

Basic interpretation of these biases

This book has some useful insights in a couple of areas, but on the whole the examples given were quite basic and sometimes confused, even inaccurate.

The narration is quite distracting, and feels like you are listening to an infomercial or a safety video.

I wouldn't recommend this book. Spend 30mins researching the subject on Wikipedia instead and you'll gain a better understanding of the topic.
