Intelligence Trap by David Robson


Out of Stock

ISBN: 9781473669857 Category: Tags: ,


Smart people are not only just as prone to making mistakes as everyone else – they may be even more susceptible to them. This is the ‘intelligence trap,’ the subject of David Robson’s fascinating and provocative debut. Packed with cutting-edge research, historical case studies, entertaining stories, and practical advice, this book explores the flaws in our understanding of intelligence and expertise, and reveals the ways that even the brightest minds and talented organisations can backfire – from some of Thomas Edison’s worst ideas to failures at NASA, Nokia, and the FBI.
