Thomas Kida explains this legacy in his study of our thinking habits and how we view choices today. A consultant in teaching the decision-making process, Kida is adept at narrative. His focus in this book is on practical matters - can you "beat the Market"? What methods can readily cure our ills? How do we buy an auto - by studying things like "Consumer Reports" or researching repair records - or do we rely on a friend's tales? Do we plan outings on realistic weather forecasts? Kida examines these and other daily situations to reveal how flawed our basis for a decision may be.
