Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Thinking Fast & Slow redux Recall Thinking Fast & Slow by Daniel Kahnemann and then pretend like you understood every word. This is Rolf Dobelli's The Art of Thinking Clearly. In short pieces collected from his newspaper columns he takes readers through ninety-nine cognitive biases and logical fallacies. It's an intellectual buffet. But without whatever the literary equivalent is of fries. Instead of feeling stuffed and drowsy, you'll walk away from this book with a better understanding of your thought processes and an appreciation for the art of decision-making.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clear & understandable overview of logical fallacies The author discusses common mistakes in reasoning and provides illustrations of each. Each chapter covers one logical reasoning fallacy. The chapters are short - typically 3 pages, so this book is very accessible. In other words, one does not need to be a philosophy major to "get it". I found the book insightful and easy to read. I believe making a complicated subject matter sound simple is a real skill and the author succeeded in doing this. I carried this book with me: With each chapter being no more than 3 or 4 pages, I learned a logical reasoning fallacy while waiting in line at the grocery store, and another waiting for a friend at a restaurant and so on.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Boring! I couldnt read this book for very long because I found it to be very boring and negative. The author didnt seem to have a point except to make me angry!.
