My Mark: 5/10

The cover is more attractive than the content. Some elements are interesting but there are many more interesting books about this subjects. It was actually painful to finish it. Disappointed! (Maybe it is because of my Master Practitioner NLP Training)

 

The Pitch:

Arguably our brain's greatest sense is the ability to understand the minds of others - our sixth sense. In Mindwise, renowned psychologist Nicholas Epley shows that this incredible capacity for inferring what others are thinking and feeling is, however sophisticated, still prone to critical errors.

We often misread social situations, misjudge others' characters, or guess the wrong motives for their actions. Drawing on the latest in psychological research, Epley suggests that only by learning more about our sixth sense will we have the humility to overcome these errors and understand others as they actually are instead of as we imagine them to be.
