When can we trust what we believe, and when are these beliefs suspect? Thomas Gilovich offers a wise and readable guide to the fallacy of the obvious in everyday life. Illustrating his points with vivid examples, he documents the cognitive and social processes that distort our thoughts, beliefs, judgements, and decisions, inevitably altering our impression of reality.
