9780007368549: Predictably Irrational

When it comes 10 making decisions in our lives, we think we're in control. We think we're making smart, rational choices. But are we? From paying for coffee to losing weight, and buying a car to choosing a romantic partner, ArieIy explains how to break through these systematic patterns of thought to make better, more financially sound, decisions. Predictably Irrational is not simply a fascinating read; it has the power to change the way we interact with the world - one small decision at a time. In the current economic crisis it is an invaluable 1001 that no person should be without.

From the Back Cover:

Why do our headaches persist after we take a one-cent aspirin but disappear when we take a fifty-cent aspirin?

Why do we splurge on a lavish meal but cut coupons to save twenty-five cents on a can of soup?

When it comes to making decisions in our lives, we think we're making smart, rational choices. But are we?

In this newly revised and expanded edition of the groundbreaking New York Times bestseller, Dan Ariely refutes the common assumption that we behave in fundamentally rational ways. From drinking coffee to losing weight, from buying a car to choosing a romantic partner, we consistently overpay, underestimate, and procrastinate. Yet these misguided behaviors are neither random nor senseless. They're systematic and predictable—making us predictably irrational.
