's review

it was amazing

4.5 stars.

I've had plenty of Ariely's book recommendations in the past, but I felt a bit jaded with too much behavioral psychology. Once I've finally decided to give him a try, I can only confirm that he brings a lot to the table. Chapters I've liked most were: the one about socials norms vs commercial norms (awesome), the mental barrier of downgrading, Ikea syndrome & over-valuation of what we have, honesty & how cash impacts it (however - the majority of examples here were rather repetitive).

Truly recommended, even if you've already went through "Thinking Fast & Slow" (bible of beh. psychology).
