Description:
'A powerful book that brings the best of psychology to bear on the way we live our lives.' Malcolm Gladwell, bestselling author of Blink and Outliers.

When people get together, there often tends to be one stand-out individual to whom others turn for answers. This person has the best advice on everything from raising children to running a business, as well as offering the most penetrating insights into world events. Their understanding of people, and why we act as we do, is what makes them the wisest one in the room.

Now, psychologists Thomas Gilovich and Lee Ross reveal their discipline's greatest discoveries so we can all become wiser. From conflict resolution to family arguments, and from overcoming social shyness to encouraging people to recycle, they demonstrate how the smallest changes in social context, feedback, or the way an issue is presented can have the most dramatic consequences. Replete with real-world examples, The Wisest One in the Room is a fascinating examination of human behaviour, revealing how we can become more adept at tackling the challenges, great and small, that we face every day.
