Format: Paperback
This book is one of the best researched and put-together books I've read in a very long time. I've always thought of myself as a rational and scientific. Well, I was wrong! The book is supported by studies and scientific papers all of which are cited and can be examined by the reader. I'm a physician. So, the evidence-based approach works very well for me. However, the book is not as dry as textbooks or articles found in scientific journals. It is also not a self-help book, although it gives a thorough insight about what you've considered rational behaviour. Highly recommended.

Format: Paperback
"It gets at the heart of irrational thinking, and how common sense is often based on irrational thinking. It is very impressive how the author has been able to take voluminous amounts of research to build a case on why it is so challenging for humans to think and behave rationally.

This book uncovers some huge misconceptions that the general public has. It proposes many studies and experiments that illustrate them. It uncovers situations in which irrationality thrives in. I highly recommend this book to all.
