Publisher's Summary

The secrets of perfect decision-making.
Have you ever...Invested time in something that, with hindsight, just wasn't worth it? Overpayed in an Ebay auction? Continued doing something you knew was bad for you? Sold stocks too late, or too early? Taken credit for success, but blamed failure on external circumstances? Backed the wrong horse?
These are examples of cognitive biases, simple errors we all make in our day-to-day thinking. But by knowing what they are and how to spot them, we can avoid them and make better choices - whether dealing with a personal problem or a business negotiation; trying to save money or make money; working out what we do or don't want in life, and how best to get it.
An international best-seller, The Art of Thinking Clearly is essential listening for anyone with important decisions to make. It reveals, in 100 short chapters, the most common errors of judgment, and how to avoid them. Simple, clear and always surprising, this indispensable audiobook will change the way you think and transform your decision-making - at work, at home, every day.

Unofficial textbook

This has been an unofficial textbook (for me) in my analytical thinking class at uni. If there is a book you should read/listen to more than once, this is the book. Get it in your library and then get it in your head.
