The Art of Thinking Clearly

The Art of Thinking Clearly, a book written by Rolf Dobeli, a Swiss national working in the financial industry.  A best seller in Europe and a book that has been translated into many different languages.

The author points out many human fallacies in his work.  Such fallacies are common, natural and sometimes programmed by our genes inherited from ancestors, and as a survival skill from the ancient days.

Rolf lists down a total of 99 of them, and at the end of the chapter, he would provide some suggestions as how to avoid, or at least minimize the chance of falling into such natural traps setup by ourselves.

The book is awakening, and gives you a new look at life from a different perspective.  It keeps your mind sober, helps to clear the clutters.  However, it is always easy said then done.  So many of them are almost like natural response from any human being.  To change the behavior, you need consistent and constant training, which is not something without pain.

I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to improve his/her decision-making process.
