it was amazing

This book not only opened my eyes wider, but explained why my eyes weren't open enough in the first place. The author communicates ideas expertly with well planned examples and illustrations of the concepts he introduces.

This book reminded me of "Predictably Irrational", pointing out the "why" beneath common human errors, especially in decision making. He shows how different mechanisms in our brain interact to overlook or "underlook" import facts, sometimes leading to detrimental consequences and other times leading to our benefit. His creative characterizations of these systems helped me learn how to apply my new knowledge of behavioral economics in everyday situations.

I will refer back to this book often to fully grasp everything I just read. Amazing book.
