Read in March, 2012

This is a book that everyone should read because it will surprise you to find out how much of what you "know" is wrong. Lilienfeld's writing style is incredibly accessible that you never feel like you are reading a dense scientific text. However, this is a scientific text through and through. Each myth is refuted with research and extensive citations from contemporary psychological research. People should walk straight past the self-help garbage in the bookstore and grab this book instead.
