Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions

Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions by Dan Ariely
74% of 25,000 people at Good Reads rated it 4 or 5*.

Why do our headaches persist after taking a one-cent aspirin but disappear when we take a 50-cent aspirin?

Why does recalling the Ten Commandments reduce our tendency to lie, even when we couldn't possibly be caught?

Why do we splurge on a lavish meal but cut coupons to save twenty-five cents on a can of soup?

Location will be determined by responses to question i.e. A someplace with super easy parking vs B e.g. Dobra tea

    So sorry to cancel this late, but it has been one heck of a long day and I am exhausted. I also didn't manage to finish the book yet.

    Did not get a chance to read the book. Very interested in independent thinking topics though. Is this going to be more of a formal discussion or more of a social event?

    This will be at Dobra tea (assuming they are not having an event there). I'll confirm with them and let everyone know.

    I'm in, but I vote the meeting place to be Dobra tea!

      I agree, Scott. Dobra might be nice when there are just a few of us, but parking is important.

      I am going to be a maybe then because Fox Chapel/Waterworks is too far for me. I am reading the book either way though, I've heard good things about this author! :)
