This review is from: Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces that Shape Our Decisions (Paperback)
The idea behind this book is that people don't always behave rationally - and that this exposes the faultlines in classical economics. The title slightly gives the game away by suggesting that this is 'predictable'. It is - no economist really believes that all people act rationally (ie always in their own interests, all the time).
That said, it's a good rattle-through read and certainly a good way to pass a couple of hours. It's just that Tim Harford and others are better.
