Para calcular a classificação geral de estrelas e a análise percentual por estrela, não usamos uma média simples. Em vez disso, nosso sistema considera coisas como se uma avaliação é recente e se o avaliador comprou o item na Amazon. Ele também analisa avaliações para verificar a confiabilidade.
Trata-se de mais um trabalho excepcional dos consagrados Tom Gilovich e Lee Ross. Eles analisam de forma prática alguns dos principais problemas da natureza humana e sua influência na origem de conflitos, propondo, através de reflexões e ricos exemplos, atitudes transformadoras da convivência além de soluções para melhorar a vida no planeta. É uma leitura fácil após a qual certamente sairemos com muitas e melhores perspectivas perante a sociedade.
The book is concise, coherent, and well written. It is easy to read and provides some useful insights. The authors focus on five components of wisdom they believe can help one to be a wiser person - even become "the wisest person in the room". The theories they present are not new: some of them are based on research published decades ago. However, the novelty of the book is in putting these theories together in a practical context of general wisdom. The chapters about education and climate change and the epilogue about Mandela's South Africa provide some practical evidence of the validity of these theories. Overall, it is a good book and a worth reading.
Pretty good stuff but they mostly just piggy back off of Daniel Kahneman's "Thinking, Fast and Slow". If you were going to read just one of those books definitely read Kahneman's book, not this one. Still a great read if you're obsessive over human psychology.
Useful, distilled knowledge - mostly social psychology, and how to apply, or at least consider them in daily life - with more than enough proof and examples, which are repeated or paraphrased way too many times throughout the entire book. This made it a rather arduous read at many points. Also, I did not appreciate the bonus chapter on climate change advocacy at the end.
just started reading and so far have found this book to be as advertized-insightful. This book is well written, very readable, and thought-provoking. As a naive realist, I would recommend this book to anyone looking to become a bit wiser than he or she was before picking up this book.
