I highly recommend this book!

Reading this, you will recognise your own ways of thinking many times and learn about yourself and how to deal with your brains many fallacies.

I especially recommend it to those who are/were taking courses in statistics. Although it only contains a little bit of statistics, the first half of the book in particular helps to make one aware of the pitfalls when planning studies or interpreting results, apart from mathematical considerations.

Thus, to me as a neuroscientist (though not a psychologist), this book was triple interesting: From the statistical perspective, the psychological perspective and the perspective of learning about my own thought processes.
