David McRaney - You Are Not So Smart (2nd Hand Paperback)
An entertaining illumination of the stupid beliefs that make us feel wise.
Whether you’re deciding which smart phone to purchase or which politician to believe, you think you are a rational being whose every decision is based on cool, detached logic, but here’s the truth: You are not so smart. You’re just as deluded as the rest of us - but that’s okay, because being deluded is part of being human.
How many of your Facebook friends do you think you know ?
Would you help a stranger in need ?
Do you know why you’re so in love with your new smartphone ?
The truth is: you’re probably wrong. You are not so smart.
In this international bestseller, award-winning journalist David McRaney examines the assorted ways we mislead ourselves every single day.
A psychology course with all the boring bits taken out, prepare for a whirlwind tour of the latest research in the subject, fused with a healthy dose of humour and wit.
You’ll discover just how irrational you really are, which delusions keep you sane, how to boost your productivity, and why you’ve never kept a New Year’s resolution.

"Each chapter starts with a little two or three sentences - that identify the hole in thinking - and then the chapter fills in more details. Critical thinking its very interesting." - Ebay Review.
"Someone once said, "It is far easier to entertain than it is to educate." What McRaney pulls off with shocking ease, in this book, is that rare combination of educational material that is extremely entertaining." - Goodreads Review.
