Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely

Predictably Irrational belongs to the popular segment of psychology books about decision-making — here economic decision-making. There are many interesting stories such as why we bring presents to dinner parties rather than crisp $50 bills, and why (for the same reasons) people steal office supplies but not money from petty cash. But somehow each story remains separate and strangely non-enticing. Try Freakonomics or The Tipping Point for more excitement.

  2. Do you think it is non-enticing because there are many chapters on different topics?

    Are there any particular chapters that you did not like?
