Product description

Review

Brilliant. The Intelligence Trap combines mesmerising storytelling with groundbreaking new research about why having a high IQ can backfire. Essential reading for anyone who wants to think more clearly. (Rolf Dobelli, author of the million-copy-selling Art of Thinking Clearly)

A fascinating and enjoyable investigation of what intelligence is and isn't, by one of the most exciting new voices in science writing. This thought-provoking and brilliantly researched guide to achieving true wisdom shows us how to be smarter - and how to protect ourselves from the cleverest fools. (Gaia Vince, prize-winning author of Adventures in the Anthropocene)

I loved The Intelligence Trap. As fun to read as it is fascinating, it celebrates the power of humility and curiosity. Everyone, especially intelligent people, should read this brilliant and important book. (Anna Rosling-Ronnlund)

The Intelligence Trap is ceaselessly fascinating and brilliantly written by one of our most consistently superb science writers. Its counter-intuitive argument, that intelligence is no inoculation against wrongness, explains so much about the fractious and baffling times in which we live. (Will Storr, author of SELFIE)

Book Description

An eye-opening examination of the stupid things smart people do-and how to cultivate skills to protect ourselves from error.
