Why Smart People Do Stupid Things eBook PDF Summary

Book Description: Why Smart People Do Stupid Things addresses a question that’s frequently on our minds. When Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky was exposed many people were utterly astounded. How could he? Most of us were asking. Answers aren’t easy to come by because we have spent considerable time building on our strengths to the neglect of our dark side. We aren’t only puzzled when we see friends, co-workers, or public leaders engage in stupid, unseemly, unexplainable acts, we are personally threatened by it. If them, why not still others or perhaps ourselves. This book looks at numerous examples of apparently unexplainable stupidities with particular focus upon Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton. Every mindless act doesn’t turn out wrong. There are occasions when the outcome greatly benefits us. On the other hand, there are many times when the result goes against us to our disadvantage if not to the point of tragedy. Why? This book addresses the complex issues involved in making rational decisions, including excusable error. Analyses are offered in a readily understandable style. Potential solutions are described. The topic is of vital interest to us individually as well as to the nation.
