The Intelligence Trap: Why smart people do stupid things and how to make wiser decisions by David Robson (Signed Hardback)'As a rule, I have found that the greater brain a man has, and the better he is educated, the easier it has been to mystify him,' - Houdini to Arthur Conan DoyleSmart people are not only just as prone to making mistakes as everyone else-they may be even more susceptible to them. This is the 'intelligence trap' the subject of David Robson's fascinating and provocative debut.Packed with cutting-edge research, historical case studies, entertaining stories, and practical advice, The Intelligence Trap explores the flaws in our understanding of intelligence and expertise, and reveals the ways that even the brightest minds and talented organizations can backfire - from some of Thomas Edison's worst ideas to failures at NASA, Nokia, and the FBI.With a knack for explaining complex ideas and featuring timeless lessons from Socrates to Benjamin Franklin to Richard Feynman and the latest behavioral science, Robson shows how to build a cognitive toolkit to avoid mistakes and protect ourselves from misinformation and fake news.
