An excellent sequel to You Are Not So Smart. McRaney does not disappoint with his explanation of more logical fallacies and behavioural quirks.

This book is a solid and accessible guide to the errors in thinking common to human nature. Entertaining and highly readable, well recommended. You may wish to follow this up by reading Dan Arielly ('Predictably Irrational'), and Chip and Dan Heath ('Switch' and 'Made to Stick'), Kerry Patterson ('Influencer') to continue on in the subject of how we think and make decisions.
