it was amazing
bookshelves: physiology

This book is very dense with information. If you really want to read it you will have to make lots of time for it. I may be biased because this is my first and only book on rationality, but it really opened my eyes for many things. I feel like I will behave differently in a variety of situations.

Even though I am a Computer Science Major and had courses on statistics I did not really make use of Bayesian statistics in my daily life and book showed me the error in not using base rates. Also risk averse and loss averse are incredibly interesting concepts.

I can blindly recommend this book to anyone who wants to take the time needed to read this book.
