The Art of Thinking Clearly Rolf Dobelli

These are examples of cognitive biases, simple errors we all make in our day-to-day thinking

I took my time getting through this book, I believe it was started in 2018, so it's been a slow trek through what is a topography of the obstacles in the common human mind. Each chapter covers one bias or fallacy in reasoning with accompanying examples, humorous observations and ways to mitigate the error. I thought it was easily grasped and could be a beneficial read to nearly everyone. This isn't one I will quickly return to for re-reading, but I do believe the content in this book is worth remaining aware of. Already have there been times when I have identified real-life examples of what is warned of extensively in The Art of Thinking Clearly.
