Into the Wild

Irrationally yours : on missing socks, pick-up lines and other existential puzzles Read Online Free - Three-time New York Times bestselling author Dan Ariely teams up with legendary The New Yorker cartoonist William Haefeli to present an expanded, illustrated collection of his immensely popularWall Street Journal advice column, “Ask Ariely”.Behavioral economist Dan Ariely revolutionized the way we think about ourselves, our minds, and our actions in his books Predictably Irrational, The Upside of Irrationality, and The Honest Truth about Dishonesty. Ariely applies this scientific analysis of the human condition in his “Ask Ariely” Q & A column in the Wall Street Journal, in which he responds to readers who write in with personal conundrums ranging from the serious to the curious: What can you do to stay calm when you’re playing the volatile stock market? What’s the best way to get someone to stop smoking? How can you maximize the return on your investment at an all-you-can-eat buffet? Is it possible to put a price on the human soul? Can you ever rationally justify spending thousands of dollars on a Rolex?In Ask Ariely, a broad variety of economic, ethical, and emotional dilemmas are explored and addressed through text and images. Using their trademark insight and wit, Ariely and Haefeli help us reflect on how we can reason our way through external and internal challenges. Readers will laugh, learn, and most importantly gain a new perspective on how to deal with the inevitable problems that plague our daily life.

I won this on goodreads. This is a reprint of his columns from the NYTimes rather than the new material I was hoping for. I found a few chuckles and some interesting ideas, so I did enjoy the read, but I wanted more, either more depth of content or more humor. To me the middle line he walked was n...

Normalde kişisel gelişim tarzı kitaplar okumamaya karardıydım ama bu kitap biraz daha farklı geldiği icin satın aldım. Yazarın okuduğum ilk kitabı. Aslında Wall Street Journal'de yazdığı yazıların bir araya getirilmesi. Bu nedenle tam kitap diyemesem de çok faydalı bir eser. Kısa bir surede bir ç...

This is one of those books with a question and answer on just a page or two. It's easily picked up and put down so that it is a good book for filling time. If you look at it that way, this book is fine. But I think that I expected more from the answers. Having read this author's Predictably Irrat...

What I liked most about this book: ON VARIETY AS A MEMORY ENHANCEMENT ON THE BENEFITS OF A CROWDED SPACE (so called “misattribution of emotions” included) ON HIRING A GOOD (AND FREE) ADVISOR Q: In terms of his moving versus not moving, I suspect your son is suffering from a combination of three decisi...

هذا الكتاب مفاجأة غير سارّة لمتابعي كتب "أرييلي" والتي تتميّز بأهمية طروحها، وأقصد بذلك كتبه الثلاثة السابقة. للأسف، أجد أنّ مادة هذا الكتاب(وهي عبارة عن أسئلة شخصية كان يرسلها القراء للكاتب، ويجيب عليها باقتضاب شديد بما يتناسب مع حجم عمود صحفي) ثمّ قام الكاتب بجمع هذه المادة أو بعضها في كتاب، لعل...

The target audience for this book is people who like Dan Ariely's work enough to read everything he publishes but not enough to keep up with his podcast or his column in the Washington Post. Fortunately that exactly describes myself. This particular book is a collection of entries from his newspa...

A little disappointed by this book that isn't alike the others written by Ariely. Unlike his other books it doesn't feel like you have learned something special after finishing it. Or maybe is it because I have already read all of his other stuff ? -> The book was ok, but far from being his bes...

One way to write a good book is to choose interesting contents. Another way is to write interestingly about regular events: Dan Ariely does exactly that through this piece. The book is a collection of question and answers and Dan uses his socio-economic perspective to disect events and provide an...

Disappointing. I expected more technical responses and less snark. Regardless, a quick and sometimes humorous read despite scratching only the surface.

Assez divertissant et léger, mais j'ai pas appris grand-chose.
