By: David G. Myers

"How reliable is our intuition? How much should we depend on gut-level instinct rather than rational analysis when we play the stock market, choose a mate, hire an employee, or assess our own abilities? In this engaging and accessible book, David G. Myers shows us that while intuition can provide us with useful—and often amazing—insights, it can also dangerously mislead us."
     —Yale University Press

"...a rich emerging field of scientific inquiry brilliantly summarized."
     —Scientific American, Michael Shermer

"...delightfully readable and deliberately provocative..."
     —Publishers Weekly

"...an extraordinary book...highly entertaining."
     —Human Nature Review, Markus Kemmelmeier

"We studied intuitions—thoughts and preferences that come to mind quickly and without much reflection. . . .For comprehensive reviews of intuition see Hogarth, 2001; Myers, 2002."
    —Daniel Kahneman, The Nobel Lecture, on receiving the 2002 Nobel Prize
