I can't wait to read it. I listened to his podcast on IT Conversations and the subject definitely caught my attention.

Thanks for sharing.

on a related topic (I think but don't actually know since I haven't read the Ariely book):

"What We Believe But Cannot Prove: Today's Leading Thinkers on Science in the Age of Certainty"

...great book.

features short essays by an incredible variety of scientists and "thinkers". originated on edge.org

I was particularly struck by the differences in the answers. wait, that made no sense. basically, that people from very similar traditions and academic thinking have faith in quite different things and use this faith as a way of propelling their activities. (that made more sense I think.)
