Product description

Do you think that you are smarter than most people? Do you know why you fell for your partner? Do you think that, as a member of a jury, you'd be impartial and just listen to the evidence? You are probably wrong. Every second, your brain is misevaluating and misjudging, responding to evolved rules that no longer apply. And it's time to fight back! In the follow-up to the bestselling sensation You Are Not So Smart, David McRaney once again delves into the assorted ways we mislead ourselves, but more than that, he helps us to overcome our quirks and think more effectively. From conserving willpower to using money to buy happiness, You Can Beat Your Brain is a pocket-sized primer informed by the latest studies in psychology and packed with wry humour and astonishing facts. You'll discover why tall men earn more money, why a rickety bridge is a good place for a first date, and how to avoid irrational beliefs and self-delusion.
