This is a more academic presentation of this subject than expected and therefore, not as practical or readable as hoped.
I wanted to learn about the human optimism that causes us to believe politicians, compulsive liars, and product claims. Though I labored through the entire book in hopes I'd discover it, I was left to scour the text for limited practical insights. Hopefully a following text or related article will elaborate on these issues.
