Dan Ariely did it again. I basically have the same things to say about this book as I did about his first one, Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions. That is to say, this was entertaining, interesting, and provocative, and although I think some of Ariely's conclusions need to be examined a bit more closely, they're certainly worth considering. What's admirable is that even though this book was arguably more of the same, it never got old.

If you're thinking of taking the leap from fiction into nonfiction but are hesitating for fear of having to read something that's dry and boring but good for you, this and its prequel are a good bet.
