Product description

Review

A fascinating and enjoyable investigation of what intelligence is and isn't, by one of the most exciting new voices in science writing. This thought-provoking and brilliantly researched guide to achieving true wisdom shows us how to be smarter--and how to protect ourselves from the cleverest fools.--Gaia Vance, author of Adventures in the Anthropocene

An engrossing standout in the thinking genre that will appeal to anyone who has ever been wrongheaded.

The Intelligence Trap combines mesmerizing storytelling with groundbreaking new research about why having a high IQ can backfire. Essential reading for anyone who wants to think more clearly.--Rolf Dobelli, author of The Art of Thinking Clearly

The Intelligence Trap is a ceaselessly fascinating book written by one of our most consistently superb science writers. Its counter-intuitive argument, that intelligence is no inoculation against wrongness, explains so much about the fractious and baffling times in which we live.--Will Storr, author of Selfie

Book Description

It is time for us to learn a new way of thinking: a cognitive toolkit to navigate intelligence traps, fake news and to maximise our potential.
