Self-described psychology nerd David McRaney is a journalist and twice-recipient of the William Randolph Hearst Award. He runs the popular blog Youarenotsosmart.com. This, his first book, was a run-away success in the US; Penguin US have already commissioned the sequel for a six-figure advance.

Reviews

'Want to get smarter quickly? Read this book.' -- David Eagleman, author of The Brain: The Story of You
'Simply wonderful. An engaging and useful guide to how our brilliant brains can go badly wrong.' -- Richard Wiseman, bestselling author of 59 Seconds
'Populist and funny.' * Evening Standard *
'A much-needed field guide to the limits of our so-called consciousness. McRaney presents a witty case for just how witless we all are.' -- William Poundstone, author of How to Predict the Unpredictable and Are You Smart Enough to Work at Google?
'Every chapter is a welcome reminder that you are not so smart-yet you're never made to feel dumb. You Are Not So Smart is a dose of psychology research served in tasty anecdotes that will make you better understand both yourself and the rest of us. It turns out we're much more irrational than most of us think, so give yourself every advantage you can and read this book.' * Alexis Ohanian - co-founder of Reddit.com *
'Fascinating... After reading this book, you'll never trust your brain again.' * Alex Boese, bestselling author of Elephants on Acid and Electrified Sheep *
