Product Details

Praise

“Erudite, lucid, funny and dense with fascinating material . . . A pragmatic dose of measured optimism, presenting rationality as a fragile but achievable ideal in personal and civic life. . . . It’s no small achievement to make formal logic, game theory, statistics and Bayesian reasoning delightful topics full of charm and relevance.”—The Washington Post

“An impassioned and zippy introduction to the tools of rational thought… Punchy, funny and invigorating.”—The Times (London)

“An engaging analysis of the highest of our faculties and perhaps (ironically) the least understood” The Wall Street Journal

“If you’ve ever considered taking drugs to make yourself smarter, read Rationality instead.”Jonathan Haidt, New York Times bestselling co-author of THE CODDLING OF THE AMERICAN MIND
 
“Pinker manages to be scrupulously rigorous yet steadily accessible and entertaining whether probing the rationality of Andrew Yang’s presidential platform, Dilbert cartoons, or Yiddish proverbs. The result is both a celebration of humans’ ability to make things better with careful thinking and a penetrating rebuke to muddleheadedness”—Publishers Weekly (starred)
 
“A reader-friendly primer in better thinking through the cultivation of that rarest of rarities: a sound argument.”—Kirkus Reviews
