Thomas Gilovich offers a wise and readable guide to the fallacy of the obvious in everyday life. When can we trust what we believe--that "teams and players have winning streaks," that "flattery works," or that "the more people who agree, the more likely they are to be right"--and when are such beliefs suspect? Thomas Gilovich offers a guide to the fallacy of the obvious in everyday life. Illustrating his points with examples, and supporting them with the latest research findings, he documents the cognitive, social, and motivational processes that distort our thoughts, beliefs, judgments and decisions. In a rapidly changing world, the biases and stereotypes that help us process an overload of complex information inevitably distort what we would like to believe is reality.

Great book, opened my mind to how closed the human mind is. it was the last of the four books my friend Mordy Ovits got me as a housewarming gift 5 years ago. I've now asked him to make 4 recommendations on a new topic.

I liked the book but I thought it was a bit too shallow and repetitive. You could distill the main arguments down to 25 pages and still include everything that's important. But at least it was a fairly entertaining book.

Author Jonah Lehrer has chosen to discuss How We Know What Isn’t So: The Fallibility of Human Reason in Everyday Life by Thomas Gilovich on FiveBooks as one of the top five on his subject - Decision-Making, saying that:



“...This book really invented the genre of science non-fiction. If you want to summarise it, a large part of the book is about positive information bias – the fact that we like to believe that we’re right and so we ignore all sorts of evidence that suggests we might be wrong. We think we’re so objective, but there’s actually nothing objective about the human mind. We have these working beliefs and we seek evidence to confirm beliefs: that, unfortunately, is the best summary of how we seek out evidence. …”
