요약
"Some of the world's smartest people explain stupidity, among them Daniel Kahneman, Dan Ariely, Alison Gopnik, Howard Gardner, Antonio Damasio, Aaron James, and Ryan Holiday. "We need books like this one." --Steven Pinker And so I proclaim, o idiots of every stripe and morons of all kinds, this is your moment of glory: this book speaks only to you. But you will not recognize yourselves... Stupidity is all around us, from the coworker who won't stop hitting "reply all" to the former high school classmate posting conspiracy theories on Facebook. But in order to battle idiocy, we must first understand it. In The Psychology of Stupidity, some of the world's leading psychologists and thinkers--including Nobel Prize winners and bestselling authors--will show you... -why smart people sometimes believe in utter nonsense; -how our lazy brains cause us to make the wrong decisions; -why trying to debate fools is a trap; -how media manipulation and Internet overstimulation make us dumber; -why the stupidest people don't think they're stupid. Their wisdom and wit are a balm for our aggrieved souls and a beacon of hope in a world of morons"--
