We can all be smarter and make better decisions. Advances in Cognitive Science (thinking about thinking) provide us with insights which enable Good Thinking and teach us how to avoid Bad Thinking. This short, entertaining, and well-structured book makes these discoveries accessible to everyone. Read this book and get smarter, fast. Fun. An engaging writing style with a treasure trove of anecdotes and fascinating facts to keep the reader interested. Smart. Clearly explaining recent cognitive science breakthroughs. In a world where the nerds have the advantage, the evidence says Good Thinking leads to substantial rewards. Practical. Explaining how people think in different contexts and offering practical solutions and tools you can use every day. A scientifically-robust handbook for anyone who wants to improve the effectiveness of their thinking. Good Thinking, and Bad is a mental tool box to enable and empower the reader's thinking. It is written from the position that everyone can be smarter and make better decisions with a little help. The positive message that runs throughout the book is that meta-cognition discoveries are not negative `thinking fallacies'. Instead, they are Thinking Paradigms which have evolved over millennia. They have at least as many valuable advantages as they do subtle disadvantages. It features new thinking in the science of meta-cognition (thinking about thinking) which provides insights to enable Good Thinking. It also teaches us how to spot, and to stop, Bad Thinking. The book is built around a practical decision-making model which the author has developed. This is based on extensive research and his experience as a senior management consultant. The structure of the book exploits proven education and training techniques to make these interesting ideas digestible and easy to retain.
