The Art of Thinking Clearly

by Rolf Dobelli

Have you ever . . . Invested time in something that, in hindsight, just wasnt worth it? Paid too much in an eBay auction? Continued to do something you knew was bad for you? Sold stocks too late, or too early? Taken credit for success, but blamed failure on external circumstances? Backed the wrong horse?These are examples of what the author calls cognitive biases, simple errors all of us make in day-to-day thinking. But by knowing what they are and how to identify them, we can avoid them and make better choices: whether in dealing with personal problems or business negotiations, trying to save money or earn profits, or merely working out what we really want in life--and strategizing the best way to get it. Already an international bestseller, The Art of Thinking Clearly distills cutting-edge research from behavioral economics, psychology, and neuroscience into a clever, practical guide for anyone whos ever wanted to be wiser and make better decisions. A novelist, thinker, and entrepreneur, Rolf Dobelli deftly shows that in order to lead happier, more prosperous lives, we dont need extra cunning, new ideas, shiny gadgets, or more frantic hyperactivity--all we need is less irrationality. Simple, clear, and always surprising, this indispensable book will change the way you think and transform your decision making--at work, at home, every day. From why you shouldnt accept a free drink to why you should walk out of a movie you dont like, from why its so hard to predict the future to why you shouldnt watch the news, The Art of Thinking Clearly helps solve the puzzle of human reasoning.
