Perfectly Confident

by Don A Moore


There is a whole world of business and personal advice telling us that confidence is the key to everything we could ever want. But surely we've all met someone who was too confident for their own good. How much confidence is too much?

Don Moore is a professor at the University of California-Berkeley's Haas School of Business who has also written for The New Yorker, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today. In this book, Moore stresses the importance of matching your confidence level to reality, exploring the pitfalls of both overconfidence and underconfidence.

Favorite quote

I cannot blame you if you suspect that overestimating your potential, maybe just a little bit, could be good. Plenty of coaches and gurus advocate precisely this. But ... it is possible to go too far.
