Advent of Books 2021: 3dec2021

Previous book

Recommendation for today

You Are Not So Smart: Why You Have Too Many Friends on Facebook, Why Your Memory Is Mostly Fiction, and 46 Other Ways You're Deluding Yourself

This is a kind of simple book to read. 48 chapters talking about different ways to understand our existence. Short chapters which make you think... On how we think.

It's always interesting to me how we believe we think rationally and what's behind that thought, is some primitive reaction. Why we do what we do, and some other interesting question, what for?

Perhaps you have heard of 'Dunning-Kruger' and 'Procrastination, but what about 'Apophenia', 'Heuristics', 'Ad Hominem', and so many other curious termns that experts have named on what being a human could involve.
