As usual, there are a lot of good thoughts and interesting connections here, but ultimately, if you follow their podcast at all, you don’t need to read this book. It has some of the better stories from those short segments, but if you’ve read Freakonomics and/or heard the Freakonomics podcast there are no surprises here.

In summary: Never assume you know anything about anything. When you look up information or try to solve a problem or make a decision about anything – remember your own personal biases are going to color your findings, every single time. So when you have reached a conclusion, be open to changing this as new information comes in.

There ya go: brain = retrained

If you’d like to see more reviews or buy a copy for yourself, Think Like a Freak is available on Goodreads and its parent company Amazon. Please consider supporting your local bookstore!
