Misbelief by Dan Ariely

Misbelief Dan Ariely
Recommended by Zissy

Written by social scientist Dan Ariely, Misbelief shows you just how misinformation can be construed as facts and what makes people spiral down rabbit holes that lead them to believe irrational things. It’s based on both research and Ariely’s own experience as a target of disinformation, and takes you right into the journey of misbelievers. A book painfully relevant to the current zeitgeist.
