A few examples of the subjects:
-chapter 1 explains how changing your behaviour can change your attitude. This chapter explaines that when your behaviour and your believes don't match, your brain finds a solution, namely: changing your attitude.
-chapter 2 clarifies that it's normal for people to be inconsistent
-chapter 5 makes clear how tabloids and reality shows can make us feel better about ourselves
-chapter 8 shows us how we use double-standards when we judge ourselves relative to others
-chapter 9 explains how why airtravel brings out weird and rude behaviour.
There are 10 chapters in total in this book, so there are more subjects in this book than the ones I mentioned above. There is a extensive list of references at the end of the book. This book explains some human behaviour in a understandable and lively way. This book is very short though, and I would have liked it to be much longer. This book is a easy and fun read that will entertain and teach you about human behaviour at the same time. Recommended for everyone.
~The Rebecca Review
Davis lists 10 odd human behaviors and provides an explanation for them as well as a moral that you can apply to your everyday life.
The arguments that she presents however are just a summary of the studies and research that has been conducted.
She only provides the conclusion without the details of the specific example or the reasoning behind the conclusion.
I think the book would be a lot more interesting and convincing if that was included as well.
Note on Kindle Reading: There is a sample chapter at the end of this book for a different book by this author so when you read and it shows you the percent of the book you've read, it is much shorter than that leads you to believe.
