The Art of Thinking Clearly

I was having a meeting with some colleagues yesterday and we talked about how we found thinking skills to be rare among workers these days.

And today as I was looking for a book to read, I found this in my stash. 

The Art of Thinking Clearly
by Rolf Dobelli

Perfect. Just what I needed. 

As I dive in, I find that the author describes 99 cognitive biases that we are all prone to. He says that this is not a how-to book, in that he does not go into details on how to deal with the biases. But he does a very good job in describing and warning us. 

I have only read until the 42nd bias with 57 more to go. 

My next step is to find someone interested enough to discuss this with, so that I will remember and be always mindful of cognitive errors. 

Anyone interested?
