Great overview of human information processing good and bad points

Read this and you will be able to critique almost every other book putting forward an ill-researched thesis based on major 'success stories' like Google or Facebook or Harry Potter. For example, did you know that at one stage Google tried and failed to sell out for $1.6m ?
This book documents the traps that our pattern matching brains fall into, and how we are strongly programmed to back-fit explanations onto observations. This leads us to massively underestimate the sheer randomness of events.
Luck really does play a far more important role than we all think.
