About this book

Stupidity as explained by some of the world’s smartest people. This is a collection of essays from leading psychologists and intellectuals who share anecdotes and scientific studies in an attempt to explain stupidity. Written in a fluid, conversational style, combining psychology and philosophy, the discussions make for a fascinating read. The essays explore our unconscious biases and how they affect the way we think, as well as the difficulty in avoiding them guiding our thoughts even when we recognise and acknowledge they exist. The book is comprised of interviews, essays, and Q & As that cover the topic from a variety of angles. Each chapter is written by a different author, allowing readers to dip in and out at their own pace. The wisdom and wit of these experts are a balm for our aggrieved souls and a beacon of hope in a world of morons.
