    Volk Kiez

    It’s a wonderful thinking errors book that you can get back at any time to recheck your thinking process and decision making process. I truly love the ending of the book where the author advises us on taking decisions that require rational thinking slowly and with lots of considerations. Those decisions which do not really harm us should just be intuitively made for the sake of our minds, as thinking is truly tiring.

    I found this book an excellent brief on most human made errors and I assure you that it assisted me on thinking more clearly in my business and life decisions so far. I have read it twice in 2019, and I am still reading random chapters from it.

    A short compedium of 99 cognitive errors explained in short and acompanied of examples and anecdotes. Highly readable and absolutely enjoyable. If you are interested in cognitive piscology or decision making do not wait to read this book.

    Minh Nguyen

    Composed of 99 short episodes of human’s cognitive biases, this book is very readable and enjoyable. If you have patience and stamina, read Thinking Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman instead.

    The book is not so much about how to think critically but rather it tells you about 99 fallacies. Now, when you're aware of the systematic biases of your thinking that may help you think more critically. But then this is a roundabout way of getting you to think critically and not what the book's title and cover promise. Each chapter is short, a page or three long. And honestly, some of the anecdotes seem off, which makes me doubt the author really knows what he's talking about (to some extent).

If we're talking cognitive fallacies, then this book employs the one of authoritative voice by name-dropping NN Taleb in the introduction; and the popularity one because for some reason this is a NYT bestseller and has loads of positive reviews. Finally, this is 2021, you know all those fallacies already. If you want more in-depth stuff, it's out there. And if you want this book, you'll get the some content on wikipedia. (I bought this book for €1 and was disappointed; I imagine it's much more of a let down at full price.) Also, the author is as it says on the cover, I have no idea who Imnet Ernest is.

    A great pinpoint on errors we make in work and personal life, and how we can learn to avoid those and discern between what’s bias and what’s not. It’s a guide we can always come back to thanks to the concision of chapters and facts presented. Which makes it easy to read and refer back to when needed. I strongly recommend it!

Though, it's not easy to memorise all these biases but reading slowly and reflecting upon your every action while going through the daily chaos of life can work a great deal. The book opens your mind to adopt ways of thinking clearly after realising the biasedness of most thinking patterns based upon your upbringing, your social or family environment and culture. The book helped me to inspect my thoughts and decisions regarding trivial life matters and set a path to thinking rationally. Before reading this book I perceive my thoughts behind every action to be logical 😅 but to my dismay, it opened my eyes and I learned something new about myself. I found most of the biases underlying my thinking pattern, though, not all of them 😂 . Thank God, my pocket money did not go wasted. It's a self-help book for every individual working for personal growth and development. Would I like to read it again? Yes! A must read and recommendation. 👍 My Ratings are 4.5 out of 5.

    This book contains 99 biases (or logical fallacies) that we have. I recommend this book to everyone because all of us suffer from biases in some form or another, and it's nearly impossible to get rid of all of them. But we can be self-aware of them, and try to minimize their effects.

The author tries to cover so many biases in such a short book, this results in very short chapters, which use anecdotes and "experiments" to show the bias in effect. The arrangement of chapters was confusing, it would've been better if some of the related chapters were grouped, but instead, the author provides the reference to related chapters at the end of each chapter. Overall, it's a nice book for anyone, especially, if you find yourself influenced by "expert opinions", news, politicians, etc.

This book has almost 100 quick chapters that cover the main hiccups in our thinking process. A book like this is often a lot better than any self-help book or positive thinking/inspirational fluff.

The only bad thing about this book is that the 99 biases/"syndromes." may have been unnecessary. Some were similar enough they could be combined. If people just learned the highest 20, they might be able to learn a lot.

    The book focuses on 99 fallacies of human thinking errors. The book is not about how to think rather how not to think. It is pretty interesting how we think and how much it is wrong. And the author points out ninety-nine wrong thinking and why they are wrong. The whole book is enriched with real-life examples that is we can relate to our life. This book will help people to think more clearly. It will force people to think again when these scenarios come to their life.

    As Dobelli says in the epilogue of this book, thinking clearly 100% of the time is not the aim, knowing when to be rational with your thoughts is best and letting other smaller decisions be made intuitively. Highly recommend

    Book by Rolf Dobelli. Read this many years ago when I was still in the High School. The wording was quite difficult for me at that time, but the lessons r really useful n deep. Recommend it for anyone who need a guidiance to see things through a clear glass.

    It reads easily and it's a concise summarisation of all kinds of biases. Although well written, it failed to actually grasp me. It reads easily and it's a concise summarisation of all kinds of biases. Although well written, it failed to actually grasp me.
