Overall Rating and Opinion of Irrationally Yours

Post by Scott »

What is your overall rating and opinion of the February 2016 philosophy book of the month, Irrationally Yours by Dan Ariely?

Would you recommend the book? Why or why not?

My Comments

I love Dan Ariely's work. However, with my high expectations this book was slightly disappointing. Being collected from letters, most of it reflected ideas and experiments I have already heard him explain. I still like the book, but it wasn't as amazing as I was hoping. Perhaps those less familiar with Dan Ariely's work would appreciate it more. What do you think?
My entire political philosophy summed up in one tweet.

"The mind is a wonderful servant but a terrible master."

I believe spiritual freedom (a.k.a. self-discipline) manifests as bravery, confidence, grace, honesty, love, and inner peace.
