What I did not lik a bit, as many other people have stated before me, was that this book is also used as a marketing tool for other afformation products. I wish they can go back like the old days when they would give you a great book, and maybe by the end they would use the last page to promote other books from the author. I think is a mistake to do this kind of marketing and the editors should stop promoting it.
The author can sometimes be long-winded in his stories, but great storytelling makes up for it in my opinion.
If boring, academic like books have put you off before when you tried to learn some psychology, then fear no more. You are now less dumb is a book that pulls you right in and leaves you feeling much smarter than the average... Though that's most likely only true in your own head, as you'll learn when you read the book.
Highly recommended! I also recommend the predecessor "You are not so smart". - Do be prepared for some overlapping information. Ex. Confirmation and hindsight bias are covered in both books.
If you enjoy books that make you think, books with lots of great information and examples, and books that work hard to help give you more information that you can actually apply to your life, then this books is for you.
Actually some of the more negative ratings on Amazon before I read the book actually helped me a lot reading in this book, as with any field the jargon can make word meanings be a little different, and the claim that the book is poorly edited made me look up a few words when I ran across them. On that comes to mind was affective/effective. Looking it up, the editing happens to be correct, but I was have assumed it was an error had I not read that review. I might have learned more diving into that than the material itself in the book.
In general, if you're looking for a menu of topics to read up on over the internet (not something I recommend if say, you're training to be in this field, but for entertainment purposes only) this is actually a fantastic read. I'm looking forward to pulling the book out again to find a new topic that interests me and diving in.
