Dobelli pinpoints exactly the assumptions, bias and illusions that shape our thinking and decision-making processes in both business and personal relationships that can cost us dearly as individuals and as a society
Financial Times
A serious examination of the faulty reasoning that leads to repeated mistakes by individuals, businesses, and nations . . . In this fascinating book, Dobelli does not offer a recipe for happiness but a well-considered treatise on avoiding 'self-induced unhappiness'

Do you have to read this book? Definitely. It's extremely entertaining and offers a fundamentally sound introduction to the nature of human thought

Three pages in, and you've already learned something else

Rolf Dobelli is endowed with both imagination and realism, a combination hard to find since the 16th-century Renaissance
