Most famously, he is author of THE ART OF THINKING CLEARLY, which became an instant success and landed on the number 1 spot on Germany's official Bestseller list and has been translated in many languages.

It’s little wonder that this book has become a best seller, and it’s a pity that other writers of this genre (or their editors) don’t change their often clunky and waffling style and adopt Dobelli’s refreshing, direct approach. The book is worth every penny. (07/15)
The book has short chapters, with each describing a particular bias and a list of related biases.
The only criticism I have is that there is some repetition as the author tries to make the number of chapters up to a hundred.
Since reading it, I often catch myself falling into the thinking traps explained here. Whether this leads to me making better decisions, who knows.
For those genuinely looking to build a better thinking and rationale and do not mind putting lots of effort to it than I find this the perfect book.
