Re: Introduction - A discussion
My first discussion post
I started this book a bit late, and I'm guessing the discussion will be over by the time I've finished it, but nether the less, I'm glad I came across this book,
I always held the opinion that there's 2 types of people in this world, robots, and conscious beings.
If someone gets shot in the head, or has an accident like Dan Ariely they are suppose to be dead, or at least very handicapped for the rest of there lives, that what there suppose to do. As robots.
Or you get the conscious beings, who decide not to hold the opinion that they will die if they get run over, or whatever.
I think, if your not a robot, and you survive a bad accident, you become more aware of yourself, and realised some3thing some one told you turned out to be incorrect. So you start questioning everything else you was told, like men only like good looking women, and not ugly women, is it true that paper notes have a real value, etc etc etc
It seems to be that this author has gone through the same thought process and wrote this book, I may be wrong, maybe he was into behavioural economics before his accident, either way, I still feel close to this book same way.
I didn't no this author had any other work out there, and I am now interested in seeing his other projects to do with this subject or anything else he has to say, so thank you Dwill and safron for letting us no.
