Title:
Don't Believe Everything You Think - The 6 Basic Mistakes We Make in Thinking
Kida, Thomas Edward
$18.00

Some discolouration to bottom of book. Spine has some creasing. Otherwise good second-hand condition.

Do you believe that you can consistently beat the stock market if you put in the effort? -that some people have extrasensory perception? -that crime and drug abuse in America are on the rise? Many people hold one or more of these beliefs although research shows that they are not true. And it's no wonder since advertising and some among the media promote these and many more questionable notions. Although our creative problem-solving capacity is what has made humans the successful species we are, our brains are prone to certain kinds of errors that only careful critical thinking can correct. This enlightening book discusses how to recognize faulty thinking and develop the necessary skills to become a more effective problem solver. Author Thomas Kida identifies "the six-pack of problems" that leads many of us unconsciously to accept false ideas: - We prefer stories to statistics. - We seek to confirm, not to question, our ideas. - We rarely appreciate the role of chance and coincidence in shaping events. - We sometimes misperceive the world around us. - We tend to oversimplify our thinking. - Our memories are often inaccurate. 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.
