Book review: Irrationality

Yesterday I’ve finally finished reading Stuart Sutherland’s Irrationality. I’ve found it really entertaining and I do recommend its reading to anyone that wants to better understand what (ir)rationality means. Stuart Sutherland makes his point (we all act irrationally sometimes) by presenting the results of several experiments that have been conducted along several years. Overconfidence and conformity are just 2 of the things that lead to wrong judgments and reasoning”s…but besides these two topics, there are several others (each with its own dedicated chapter) which really turn this book into a wonderful reading experience. Overall, I’m giving it 8.5/10.
