Description

Humans love making predictions: We bet on the outcomes of sporting events; we try to pick optimal career paths; we forecast stock prices; we do it all the time! Why are we so fascinated by the future? Why have we created for ourselves a society where predictive abilities are needed for everyday functioning? More importantly, if we must be prophets, how do we at least become better ones, devoid of biases and fatal cognitive flaws that hold us back from clearly seeing ahead? To see our future, we must first take a look at our past.

    One of the most insightful reads of the Year. Beware: this book covers a LOT of ground! It paces from one mind-blowing insight to another and keeps you gripped till the end. The storytelling is seamless and beautiful and doesn’t feel like a scientific exploration of the topics at all – even though they very much are. It genuinely made me rethink a lot of things I took for granted!

    Flawed Prophets is something i would recommend to everyone, it has these really easy to read and comprehend stories explaining life, existence and everything in between and beyond. This is definitely for anyone who is switching from fiction to non-fiction and yet not ready to be bored by the complex terminology and the monotonicity of the non-fiction world.
