Very few of the ideas in this book are new or revolutionary, but the author does not pretend otherwise. It is very nice to have so many of the factors influencing thinking, collected and correlated into one book. It serves as a good reminder of these concepts or as an easy to read and accessible, introduction to critical thinking. The short single concept chapters make it easy to dip into and the use of anecdotes consolidates our understanding. Should be on everyone's bookshelf. Ange
It's a good quick read. Points you in the right direction. Allows you to find a particular area of the field that might interest you at a point in time, but would require further research elsewhere if you wished to analyse the topic in greater detail.
Excellent insight into our mind. Rolf Dobelli explains clearly how we fool ourselves most of the time. Positive or negative events in our life do not alter our level of happiness long term. If we do something right we take credit for it; if something goes wrong we blame every one else. It is an informative and enjoyable book to read.
