Upside of Irrationality: The Unexpected Benefits of Defying Logic at Work and at Home.
From the NY Times Sunday Book Review, we get a glimpse of what to expect from our latest book club selection – “In “The Upside of Irrationality,” Dan Ariely, a professor at Duke, gives us a tour of the irrational side of human decision-making and the science of behavioral economics. When it comes to our motivations, he writes, we are less like “hyper-rational Mr. Spock” and more like the “fallible, myopic, vindictive, emotional, biased Homer Simpson.” Given these frailties, Ariely wants to help us “figure out how we can get the most good and least bad out of ourselves” when making choices about our money, our relationships and our happiness.”
