The Art of Thinking Clearly

Rolf Dobelli

Overview

Are you aware that most crosswalk- and elevator door buttons don't do anything? Or that 84% of Frenchmen think they're above-average lovers? See, that's the thing about humans: We think we have more of a hand in our lives' events than we actually do. You might think you're good at being rational or assessing your own abilities. But you fall prey to fallacies and biases, too.

Our brains are evolutionarily wired with shortcut ways to help us survive. Unfortunately, these psychological tendencies don't serve us well now that we don't have to escape being eaten by predators on a daily basis.

In The Art of Thinking Clearly, author Rolf Dobelli dives deep into many common psychological biases. With specific examples of these thought patterns and ways to overcome them, this book is both entertaining and informative. No matter how smart you think you are, this will shed light on some of the weak points in your thinking, and make you wiser.
