I loved this when I first bought it, heartily recommended it to others and even lent out my copy, which I finally have back.

It is a fascinating discourse on the old topic of emotions vs logic; and how we make decisions with our guts that, particularly in a complex information rich world, may well be just plain wrong. And the scariest thing of all, confirmation bias, is that we will actually process things we don't agree with with different parts of our brain to the ones we do agree with. There is virtually no chance of logic putting us back on the "right" track.

Fascinating. ( )
