  • Confirmation bias: how we can go wrong when trying to be right
  • The challenge of casual attribution: why we shouldn't be so sure when we give credit to assign blame
  • The perils of examples: what we miss when we rely on anecdotes
  • Negativity bias: how our fear of loss can lead us astray
  • Biased interpretation: why we fail to see things as they are
  • The dangers of perspective-taking: why others don't always get what's obvious to us
