The Confidence Game: Why We Fall for It . . . Every Time
Belief. Our brains are hardwired toward belief, and that’s one reason why we are all susceptible to being conned, according to Maria Konnikova in her book titled, The Confidence Game: Why We Fall for It . . . Every Time. We’ve all been conned, and some of us may not know it. Readers who enjoy evidence-based nonfiction are those most likely to enjoy reading this interesting and entertaining book. I found it interesting to read that most con games have more to do with power than with money. Con artists understand human nature and behavior very well, and they find ways in which to encourage us to do what we most want to do.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
