Posts and reviews of The Biased Mind

Review by Tibi Puiu, in ZME Science, 25 November 2015
"All of the tackled subjects are most interesting, and laymen will find a lot of food for thought to munch on."
"The book is densely packed, but short at the same time. More than 200 subjects are tackled, yet summarized elegantly so you get the gist of it without actually getting lost in too many details. I really enjoyed the pace and the authors' voices --- direct, humorous and very reader friendly."
"This book took seven long years to compile, and it doesn't disappoint. You'll learn so much, and laugh along the way. My kind of style. Definitely looking forward to the sequel."

The Biased Mind is featured in selection of Livros sobre temas relacionados a Economia Comportamental.

Review by David Ludden, in Psychology Today, 30 November 2015
"In their new book The Biased Mind, French economists Jérôme Boutang and Michel De Lara describe the process that expert wine tasters go through to assess the quality of a particular vintage.(...) In brief, we need the experts to point out the relevant variables, but then we should rely on a computer to crunch the numbers on those variables."

Review by Shabnam Mousav, in Journal of Bioeconomics, July 2017
"Although the book is clearly written for a general audience, it maintains the capacity to engage a sophisticated reader trained in formal decision theoretical traditions."
"Throughout the book, engaging and amusing tales do not rule out the dominant presence of a scientific approach to the subject."
"The book is most amusing when addressing personal moments and private thoughts and giving the reader a method to look into their thoughts and feelings that is often empowering and intellectually rewarding"
"This book is a nice read for a wide variety of minds, tastes, and training, with something to offer everyone in terms of entertainment, helping to better understand one's self and others, and providing a valuable collection of scientific, artistic, and popular resources on the matter of how our minds work."
