This is an amazing book....

It is the single book that falls into the category of.....If everyone had to read one book.....this would be it



It tells us about the human imperfection in simplistic, yet empirically proven ways. The major reason why I love this book is because it points out where we commit our prejudices, and how many of those seemingly little problems quickly hoard up and cause harm to someone regularly in an everyday scenario.

KNOW YOUR PREJUDICES,AND ITS SOURCES

It rightfully points out that most of these prejudices are a side-effect of our mind's mechanisms to help us survive and stay sane. However, that does not mean we should leave it be since its near infinite. rather we should AS human beings take the time to minimize the collateral damage by regulating our mechanisms.

AND do it CONSCIOUSLY, since these things happen because of the subconscious, and it is up to the CONSCIOUS to pay attention and minimize the loss.
