THE INVISIBLE GORILLA And Other Ways Our Intuitions Deceive Us

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Dan Woren

Contemporary Culture • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Narrator Dan Woren conveys a bright-eyed fascination with this collection of surprising research on the ways we mentally process the world around us. Though his diction is precise and his phrasing is carefully matched to the nuances of the text, his narration is natural and appealing. The authors summarize research showing how most people are ridiculously overconfident about what they think they see, remember, and know and how they are frequently wrong when making evaluations, attributing causality, and estimating their own potentials. Familiar language and spare writing make the often-lengthy research and anecdotal reports accessible. Helped immensely by near-perfect production, this is a stimulating educational experience for anyone. T.W.
