It's rationality stupid.,
This review is from: What Intelligence Tests Miss: The Psychology of Rational Thought (Paperback)
Brilliant little book about what makes us intelligent and argues persuasivly that it is rationality rather than IQ we should try to measure and improve.He shows people with high IQ's still do really stupid things because they are not rational. He shows we are all 'cogniative misers' and take short cuts or make quick easy decisions,which is OK for choosing chocolate bars but not so good for choosing jobs,investments or governments.Really well written and practical,hopefully I will make better decisions now.
