This book can change the way that one perceives themselves and others. Burton's examples help to facilitate our understanding of how the mind works and often "plays tricks" on us. So, are we certain? At the end of the book, I realized that I need to ask more and better questions. Burton provides the reader with a sense of relief a "lifting of the burden" that being certain is not they end and be all of life. We can exist in ambiguity.

A very readable review of the latest understanding of how we think; how we form opinions, and what makes us comfortable with our beliefs. Our reasoned conclusions, our beliefs and our opinions may be formed in areas of the brain that are not under our conscious control.
