Predictably Irrational

I would say that "Predictably Irrational" is an extension to Daniel Kanheman's "Thinking Fast and Thinking Slow". It is much lucid though.

Principles I liked from this book are -

1)Explanation on how "Free is not really free."
2)Importance of ability to work in the zone. Doing something even when it's unpleasant in the moment for mastery in the future.
3)Concept of "Structured Procrastination". What can be done to avoid it?

The book helped me identify things I do which can be done better. Although the realization is uncomforting right now, action taken to get better will help.

Dan Ariely's talks on Youtube are highly recommended too. I bet they will make you think.

Read this article from Mr. Money Mustache too.
