Read it a few years ago but we really enjoyed it ( GoodReads Reviews). Any thoughts or other recommended similar books?

I'll add it to my list. Based on the reviews, I suspect Kahneman's Thinking Fast and Slow might be along the same lines?

I once bought a copy but it was stolen from my mailbox before I retrieved it. It looks like my library has gotten a copy in the meantime, just placed it on hold.

to copy somebody who read psychology books to abuse people in deep need - Daniel Goleman wrote "Vital Lies, Simple" before "Emotional Intelligence" and this why this piece [in similar vein] is forgotten by general public

@Jacob Thank you Jacob, another great read indeed! If others haven't read this they should definitely check it out, we suspect it can be found at most local libraries.

@theanimal/@Stahlmann Interesting, haven't read these yet, we'll add them to our library queue.

Thank you for the recommendations guys! :-)
