Irrationally Yours Is Published Today! by Dan Ariely
My new book – Irrationally Yours: On Missing Socks, Pickup Lines, and Other Existential Puzzles is out today. The book is based on my “Ask Ariely” column with some amazing cartoons by William Haefeli.
Here is a sample of what you might learn from the book…..
- What can you do to stay calm when you’re playing the volatile stock market?
- What’s the best way to get someone to stop smoking?
- How can you maximize the return on your investment at an all-you-can-eat buffet?
- Is it possible to put a price on the human soul?
- Can you ever rationally justify spending thousands of dollars on a Rolex?
And here are some extra kind words from a few individuals:

Ariely is a master observer of human foibles. His advice is funny, thoughtful, and well-founded. Sometimes all three together. My advice: read it, enjoy it, think about it.

From advice on relationships to insight on superstitions, Ask Ariely is as informative as it is witty. I really enjoyed reading it.
