Ok,ok, ok, my turn :D

I finished: "You are not so smart" by David McRaney. This is a life changer book! I can't recommend it more. It has a second part - "You are now less dumb". I already read half of it. Biases, fallacies, entertaining illumination of the stupid beliefs that make us feel wise.

Do yourself a gift and read these books. You'll be learning so many great life lessons and how your brain works, not always in your favor.

I feel like an old fart now - I remember reading his blog back when blogs were still the shit. Pretty sure it got linked in a Cracked article or something.

I'd add Dan Ariely to your reading list, specifically Predictably Irrational and The Honest Truth About (Dis)Honesty. After that, maybe also Daniel Kahneman if you're still hungry for more!
