Daniel Kahneman, Thinking Fast and Slow:

My Review:

Heidi Grant Halvorson, No One Understands You And What To Do About It

Why you shouldn’t concern yourself too deeply with what other people think and why they probably won’t have a realistic understanding of who you are because of their own preconceived biases.

Robert Cialdini, Influence: Science and Practice

If you want to learn how to effectively manipulate people in real life then here’s your guidebook. Many marketing books build on the premises of this book.

Alexa Ispas, Psychology and politics: A social identity perspective

A short book understanding how psychological in-group and out-groups form and how we can change ourselves to form better bonds with each other.

Friedrich Nietzsche, Beyond Good and Evil

The most devastating argument against speaking for the “truth” of what you believe. Nietzsche argues the opposite and states that arguing for truth will gain you nothing; instead he suggests concealment from others so that you aren’t condemned for speaking the truth. The reasoning behind this is interesting; people don’t want the truth, they want self-affirmation and making the crowd the highest of your virtues will only lead to nihilism and misanthropy.
