Admittedly, I learned a few things about why humans cannot be counted upon to make "rational" decisions by reading this book. But for whatever reason, I had trouble getting through it and found the author's writing style annoying. Despite the fact that I once taught Statistics--and hence am not unacquainted with probability nor techniques of data analysis--I had a hard time understanding the logic in many of the examples that were supposed to be illustrative. Think the whole book could have benefitted from some judicious editing, and perhaps should have been reduced to a salient 200 pages. Sheesh!
