bookshelves: currently-reading

Just getting going on this one. It's long been on the wife's bookshelf and was widely read in Baseball Prospectus circles by folks with an interest in learning how the human mind operates and how fallacies coming into play. A bit of a Gladwell edge to it, I'd say.

Long flight to LA this weekend, should plow through a good chunk of it.

Patrick Brown Curious if you finished this and if so, what you thought of it. I'm reading (slowly, slowly) Thinking Fast and Slow, and this sounds a bit similar.

message 2: by Jonah (new) - added it

Jonah Keri Enjoyed it! Slightly academic, but good insights, teaches a lot about critical thinking and self-awareness.
