    I first learned of Bargh when one of his experiments was used by a behavioural economist. I dug up a couple of his studies and found his work to be very interesting. I was excited to learn that he had recently written a book - and I was not disappointed. He references some of his studies in the past...

    Great collection of research findings - 'a life's work' as he puts it himself at the end - of the author's findings regarding the strengths (and weaknesses) of the unconscious.Well put together, easy to read, with some fairly entertaining anecdotes throughout. My favorite and most powerful takeaway ...

  • John Hicks
    Miss this book and miss what you are and have been and ever can be. Ten years in the making, summarizes all that Kahneman and Tversky and others have taught in recent decades about where our decisions are conscious (rarely) and where they are unconscious (mostly). Much of the research was done by Ba...
