The Art Of Thinking Clearly

‘The Art Of Thinking Clearly’ by Rolf Dobelli is quite a thought-provoking treat, offering 99 reflections backed up by studies on how we tend to easily deceive ourselves, but more importantly, how to straighten out our perceptions. It’s easy to read yet substantial.

There is some room for improvement though… for ‘the art of thinking MORE clearly’ would include clearer moral bearings and a sense of a higher goal for the trouble of thinking clearly? If not, the lessons learnt might be abused, thus with no higher purpose?

Guess that’s not the focus of the book, but if an opening chapter on motivational morals and a closing chapter on the ultimate goal were added to frame the purpose and direction of thinking (and acting) clearly, it would be nice. (So clearly thinks the picky me?)
