10 Books You Have To Read If You Believe Humans Are Rational Link of the day - Free $50 Kmart card. 1. Sway: The Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behavior Why is it so difficult to sell a plummeting stock or end a doomed relationship? Why do we listen to advice just because it came from someone “important”? Sway introduces us to the Harvard Business School professor who got his students to pay $204 for a $20 bill, the head of airline safety whose disregard for his years of training led to the transformation of an entire industry, and the football coach who turned conventional strategy on its head to lead his team to victory. 2. What Ariely has done here is shift a lot of the thinking developed by such pioneers as Kahneman & Tversky who worked in behavioural economics, and moved it into the everyday sphere. 3. I think “Paradox of Choice” does bring insight into shopping, but its range is actually much wider than that. 4. “Buy on apples, sell on cheese” is an old proverb among wine merchants. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
