First impressions
I hoped that the book will be easy artistic fiction. And in general I’m not mistaken. But was not right at 100%. This book presents a number of scientific experiments and studies. But they are not fed the dry language of facts and figures, and interesting and sometimes exciting stories. The book is not boring scientific treatise. Above it is not necessary to sit and think long. And it is quite suitable for reading at bedtime.

Who is this book, and what she
This book is suitable for everybody and everyone, because each of us makes mistakes. Exactly the book will be of interest to those who want to know why he makes mistakes. The book will teach them to detect and analyze. And this book can be useful to you, not only for self-improvement – the material from the book can be used as a tool in the fight against the enemies. After all, in order to hit the enemy, you need to know its weaknesses.

I wrote a full list of the chapters of this book, that you specifically understand what is it. Chapter titles truly reflect their content and the content of the book as a whole.

We look, but we do not always see.
We are looking for meaning in everything.
We are finding the facts.
We all wear rose-colored glasses.
We can both walk and chew gum – nothing more.
We incorrectly interpret reality.
We “skim the cream”.
We like to order.
Men opened fire first.
We all appreciate a higher than average.
We’d better do everything is clear.
We ourselves if nothing limit.
On the other side of the hill the grass is not greener than ours.
About the design of the book and its translation
Translation, as always, very good quality. For this, we can say a big thank you to the publisher, “Mann, Ivanov and Ferber.” They also gave me this book for review. Can not say anything about the paper version of the book, since I read it in electronic form. On the publisher’s website, you can purchase a paper version of the book, as well as e-mail. Also available book applications for iPhone and Android.

Book design also evokes positive emotions. Notes chapters divided into separate paragraphs of text that can not be ignored. This will be especially useful for those unfortunate people who have learned to read books on the diagonal.

This book is exactly for our readers. Found an error, you can not to repeat them and thus improve your life. And this is a real layfhak. The only thing I missed in the book, so it’s conclusions. Something like instructions how to correct the mistakes that we found thanks to the book. I put this book 8 out of 10 she does not have to be present on your bookshelf, but for an entertaining and at the same time good reading descend.
