Wise lessons from many of histories greatest thinkers. Great for lovers of learning and multidisciplinary exploration. Thinking is a skill and Beveling goes on a quest to weave together learnings about attaining wisdom. The book is separating into four parts, Part One is about what influences our thinking, Part two is about the psychology of misjudgments, Part three is about the Psychics and Mathematics of misjudgment and Part four provides guidelines for better thinking. The book lacks a strong central guiding message, and the ideas are all over the place. At times it felt like I was reading a reference book, which made it difficult to read at times.
