9780094712201: Irrationality: The Enemy within

As humans, we consider ourselves to be distinguished from other animals by our capacity for rational thought. And yet we are also capable of numerous self-deceiving and irrational behaviours - from superstitions to racism. In this book, a psychologist examines the many varieties of irrationality to which we are prone, and the complex human interactions between logic, rationality, self-deception and emotion.

Review:

Ben Goldacre, author of Bad Science
Superb! The thinking man's self help book; it left me infinitely wiser, but I know it won't change my behaviour one tiny bit.

Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian
You must buy this book, for every home should have it.

Richard Dawkins, author of The God Delusion
Extremely gripping and unusually well written.

Oliver Sacks, author of The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat
Terrifying, sometimes comic, very readable and totally enthralling.
