Don't Believe Everything You Think: The 6 Basic Mistakes We Make in Thinking Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kida vividly illustrates these tendencies with numerous examples that demonstrate how easily we can be fooled into believing something that isn't true. In a complex society where success - in all facets of life - often requires the ability to evaluate the validity of many conflicting claims, the critical-thinking skills examined in this informative and engaging book will prove invaluable.

Book News Annotation:

In this accessible text, Kida outlines six common errors in thinking that lead people to believe things that aren't true and make decisions that negatively affect their lives. He describes the cognitive basis of such common foibles as ignoring the role of coincidence in shaping events and explains how these errors can be corrected through the development of critical thinking skills. Kida teaches management at the U. of Massachusetts at Amherst.
