Author of You Are Not So Smart Has New Book: You Are Now Less Dumb

David McRaney created the blog You Are Not So Smart to explore self delusion. He says, “Like lots of people, I used to forward sensational news stories without skepticism and think I was a smarty pants just because I did a little internet research. Little did I know about confirmation bias and self-enhancing fallacies, and once I did, I felt very, very stupid. I still feel that way, but now I can make you feel that way too.”

In his first book named after the blog, You Are Not So Smart, David provides insight on the ways we delude ourselves everyday and how we can start to be humble and enjoy life more with a healthy dose of humility. You can watch the trailer for that book here:

In his second book, You Are Now Less Dumb, David goes deeper into understanding just how deluded we really are and how to learn to use that knowledge to become even more humble and better connected in the world. Watch the trailer for that book here:
