Recommended Book: The Upside of Irrationality by Dan Ariely

Dan Ariely’s follow up to Predictably Irrational continues in the same vein of describing human behavior from behavioral economic experiments. It’s got the same tone and voice as his other book, which is a good thing: very personal, funny, and driven by experimental results. This book covers more of how our irrationality can be valuable, rather than a problem. His own personal stories are a common thread, more so in this book than the previous. I wish it had more stories of his experiments and fewer experiential, reflective pieces, but I still highly recommend it. (I listened to this as an audio book, and the narration was very good.)
