About the Book

• Academic Outreach

Critical Praise

“A fireworks show of insights into how our minds work. If you want to avoid tripping on cognitive errors, read this book.” - Iris Bohnet, Professor and Academic Dean, Harvard Kennedy School, Director of the Harvard Decision Science Laboratory

“Dobelli examines our most common decision-making failings with engaging eloquence and describes how to counter them with instructive good sense.” - Robert Cialdini, author of Influence

“…a serious examination of the faulty reasoning that leads to repeated mistakes by individuals, businesses, and nations…In this fascinating book, Dobelli does not offer a recipe for happiness but a well-considered treatise on avoiding ‘self-induced unhappiness.’” - Booklist (starred review)

“…easy-going prose…what [Dobelli] does is pinpoint exactly the assumptions, bias and illusions that shape our thinking and decision-making processes in both business and personal relationships that can cost us dearly as individuals and as a society.” - Financial Times
