• Why can large bonuses make CEOs less productive?
• Why is revenge so important to us?
• How can confusing directions actually help us?
• Why is what we THINK makes us happy different from what REALLY makes us happy?

In his groundbreaking book PREDICTABLY IRRATIONAL, social scientist Dan Ariely revealed the multiple biases that lead us into making unwise decisions. Now, in THE UPSIDE OF IRRATIONALITY, he exposes the surprising negative and positive effects irrationality can have on our lives. Focusing on our behaviors at work and in relationships, he offers new insights and eye-opening truths about what really motivates us on the job, how one unwise action can become a long-term bad habit, how we learn to love the ones we’re with, and more. THE UPSIDE OF IRRATIONALITY will change the way we see ourselves at work and at home—and cast our irrational behaviors in a more nuanced light.

We based our evaluation of book condition on the following criteria:

New: Just like it sounds. A brand-new, unused, unread copy in perfect condition.

Like New: An apparently unread copy in perfect condition. Dust cover is intact; pages are clean and are not marred by notes or folds of any kind.

 * Very Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in excellent condition. Pages are intact and are not marred by notes or highlighting, but may contain a neat previous owner name. The spine remains undamaged.

 * Good: A copy that has been read, but remains in clean condition. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact. The spine may show signs of wear. Pages can include limited notes and highlighting, and the copy can include "From the library of" labels or previous owner inscriptions.

 * Acceptable: A readable copy. All pages are intact, and the cover is intact (the dust cover may be missing). Pages can include considerable notes--in pen or highlighter--but the notes cannot obscure the text.
