This book is great. It should be required reading for anyone who believes it shouldn't be.
After reading this I realise I am doubly cognitively challenged. I'm not so intelligent that I am one of those who can effortlessly explain my biases and faulty thinking away, but I still manage to fall for them, only noticing them after the fact. I have lost count of the number of times I thought "uh oh, I've done that" while reading it.
Needless to say, it was a humbling and enlightening experience reading this book, but I do believe that I am a little bit better for having read it.
