Highly recommended. If you read this, though, don't read it quickly. I made limited myself to reading only ten or fifteen pages a day. There's a certain flowing quality to this book that came out.

“Having a long-term plan--and not casting it aside--is the key to dealing with our fear of loss (loss aversion).”
Ori Brafman, Sway: The Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behavior

“We tend to match the emotions of those around us. For example, we’re more prone to become stressed when we’re around someone who is high-strung. And we’re more likely to be in a good mood when others around us are laughing.”
Ori Brafman, Click: The Magic of Instant Connections

“If they had been, explained Falk, they would have had to come up with a falsifiable hypothesis. For instance, if the hypothesis is that all tomatoes are red, you can disprove the hypothesis by finding a yellow tomato. “What I said in my paper,” Falk told us, “that [the Hobbit] is not a microcephalic, can be falsified with one specimen from a proven microcephalic whose virtual endocast looks identical. And that is scientific.”
