In his groundbreaking book PREDICTABLY IRRATIONAL, social scientist Dan Ariely revealed the multiple biases that lead us into making unwise decisions. Now, in THE UPSIDE OF IRRATIONALITY, he exposes the surprising negative and positive effects irrationality can have on our lives. Focusing on our behaviors at work and in relationships, he offers new insights and eye-opening truths about what really motivates us on the job, how one unwise action can become a long-term bad habit, how we learn to love the ones we’re with, and more. THE UPSIDE OF IRRATIONALITY will change the way we see ourselves at work and at home—and cast our irrational behaviors in a more nuanced light.
