You Are Not So Smart - Book Review

You Are Not So Smart: Why You Have Too Many Friends on Facebook, Why Your Memory Is Mostly Fiction, and 46 Other Ways You're Deluding YourselfYou Are Not So Smart: Why You Have Too Many Friends on Facebook, Why Your Memory Is Mostly Fiction, and 46 Other Ways You're Deluding Yourself by David McRaney

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Have you ever had a lucky shirt? A lucky seat where you watched all of your team's games? Ever believed something strange because you were unsure if the speaker was honest?

The old saying is true: "We do not see the world as it is, we see the world as we are." So who are we? Well we are mostly the same, trapped in our own heads, modifying our memories and actions to support our ideology.

David McRaney presents a straightforward, easy to read and understand little book about how our mind tries to make order out of the chaotic randomness of our existence on this rock.
