    1. I won this on .This is a reprint of his columns from the NYTimes rather than the new material I was hoping for. I found a few chuckles and some interesting ideas, so I did enjoy the read, but I wanted more, either more depth of content or more humor. To me the middle line he walked was not fully satisfying.

    2. Normalde kişisel gelişim tarzı kitaplar okumamaya karardıydım ama bu kitap biraz daha farklı geldiği icin satın aldım. Yazarın okuduğum ilk kitabı. Aslında Wall Street Journal'de yazdığı yazıların bir araya getirilmesi. Bu nedenle tam kitap diyemesem de çok faydalı bir eser. Kısa bir surede bir çok konuya be olaya bakış acımı değiştirdi bu kitap. Kesinlikle yazarın diğer kitaplarını da okumayı planlıyorum.

    3. This is one of those books with a question and answer on just a page or two. It's easily picked up and put down so that it is a good book for filling time. If you look at it that way, this book is fine. But I think that I expected more from the answers. Having read this author's Predictably Irrational: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions, I guess that I wanted more insight into the questions and more thought from the answers. Ariely answers questions that range from thoughtful to bizarre [...]

    4. What I liked most about this book:ON VARIETY AS A MEMORY ENHANCEMENTON THE BENEFITS OF A CROWDED SPACE (so called “misattribution of emotions” included)ON HIRING A GOOD (AND FREE) ADVISORQ:In terms of his moving versus not moving, I suspect your son is suffering from a combination of three decision biases. The first is the endowment effect, which has to do with our tendency to use our current situation as a reference point, and view any other alternative as a negative change from where we ar [...]

    5. هذا الكتاب مفاجأة غير سارّة لمتابعي كتب "أرييلي" والتي تتميّز بأهمية طروحها، وأقصد بذلك كتبه الثلاثة السابقة.للأسف، أجد أنّ مادة هذا الكتاب(وهي عبارة عن أسئلة شخصية كان يرسلها القراء للكاتب، ويجيب عليها باقتضاب شديد بما يتناسب مع حجم عمود صحفي) ثمّ قام الكاتب بجمع هذه المادة [...]

    6. The target audience for this book is people who like Dan Ariely's work enough to read everything he publishes but not enough to keep up with his podcast or his column in the Washington Post. Fortunately that exactly describes myself. This particular book is a collection of entries from his newspaper column where people ask him questions that are often barely related to his specialty (behavioral psycology), and he provides a witty answer from the perspective of his work. The questions and respons [...]

    7. A little disappointed by this book that isn't alike the others written by Ariely. Unlike his other books it doesn't feel like you have learned something special after finishing it. Or maybe is it because I have already read all of his other stuff ?-> The book was ok, but far from being his best one.

    8. One way to write a good book is to choose interesting contents. Another way is to write interestingly about regular events: Dan Ariely does exactly that through this piece. The book is a collection of question and answers and Dan uses his socio-economic perspective to disect events and provide answers to rather mundane occurrences. The observance of decision making and rationalizing process is a world of its own and Dan does a great job of exposing this realm to the everyday Joe. The writer also [...]

    9. Disappointing. I expected more technical responses and less snark. Regardless, a quick and sometimes humorous read despite scratching only the surface.

    10. Assez divertissant et léger, mais j'ai pas appris grand-chose.

    11. Nếu so với hai cuốn trước thì cuốn này không hấp dẫn bằng. Đây là tuyển tập các câu Q&A từ mục báo do Dan phụ trách nên không mang đến nhiều điều mới mẻ.

    12. At least my extraocular muscles got some exercise thanks to the intense eye-rolling this "book" imposed on me with every single one of its pages.

    14. One of the most entertaining and endearing social scientists and behavioural economists gracing the field today, Dan Ariely decided to commence a column imaginatively titled "Ask Ariely" in the Wall Street Journal beginning 2012. This was meant to be a platform for readers to get a relief from various dilemmas plaguing their day-to-day existence, both professionally and personally.This book is a collection of the questions posed by the readers and the solutions provided by Ariely. Ranging from t [...]

    15. Witty, downright hilarious at times, and quite informative. This is what great popular science writing is all about. This isn't just about what we think, but how we go about doing so. And we are not the rational agents we tell ourselves we are, but that's not all bad.

    16. This book is basically a collection of Dan's columns at the Wall Street Journal. I've been following his books for the past year and I've never been disappointed. What I specifically love about this book is its succinctness in delivering important ideas. In comparison with his previous books it presents a higher proportion of insights on the topic of human behaviour. As other reviewers have pointed out, this is unlike any of his past books, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy his witty comment [...]

    17. Thoroughly disappointing! This is a collection of Ariely's columns titled "Ask Ariely" that are published in The Wall Street Journal. Not even a single entry is funny or enlightening. It is a series of mundane or downright silly questions/first-world-problems with Ariely's answers where he is trying too hard to be funny. I have liked his work in The Honest Truth About Dishonesty, which is why I had higher expectations but alas! Not even sure why WSJ finds it publishing worthy.

    18. Dana Arielyho mám rád. Píše zábavně-poučně, jeho knížky mě vždy obohatí. Stalo se tak i v tomto případě, ale hodnocení dávám nízké. Sbírka sloupků z novin totiž neměla takovou hloubku ani společné téma. Zklamán jsem byl i z délky - k přečtení knížky stačil jeden den při cestě z a do práce. Doprovodné ilustrace jsou sice hezké, ale zanechaly ve mě pocit nastavované kaše.

    19. The book, a list of Q&A from his Wall Street Journal column, entitled "Ask Ariely" is a good weekend read, not quite to the match of other books by Ariely. It does however retain his jokes and puns, some of them quite good.

    20. This is exactly the same book as Irrationally Yours. Bought them at the same time and did not realize that they have the same content with different titles. I wonder how many other people fell for it like I did.

    21. Very funny and light reading. As expected from Ariely.

    23. Po přečtení knihy Dana Arielyho v angličtině jsem zjistil, že mu něco vyšlo i česky, takže jsem po tom sáhl a přišlo zklamání. Ne, proto, že by autor zblbnul, je to pořád zábavné - ale spíš je problém v tom, co to je. Místo vědecké práce na téma lidské iracionality je to jen sbírka fejetonů, krátkých odpovědí čtenářům, které vycházely v novinách Wall Street Journal. Něco je zábavný, ale fakt je to jen sbírka postřehů až bonmotů - což mi přišla [...]

    24. Reminiscent of Dear Abby or Ann Landers advice columns this book is a compilation of questions the author, Dan Ariely, has received. While his replies contain the similar advice, wit, and sometimes humor they differ by including his knowledge and research behind the problems/solutions.The book is a relatively easy and enjoyable read and I would classify it as a bathroom reader. It is easy to pick up and put down and is broken into many parts so depending on how long your stay, you will be both e [...]

    25. I loved Dan Ariely's first book "Predictably Irrational". However, I was disappointed by the sequel "The Upside of Irrationality". This book is the third Ariely book I read, and it is a nice surprise. The book is a collection of questions and answers about daily life phenomena, a psychological version of the "Freakonomics". But the author contributes not only with his knowledge of psychology and behavioral economics, but also with his common sense and, more importantly, his sense of humor. I got [...]

    26. Three simple tools to better stick to priorities:1. Imagine if the request is for next week. If you can cancel other obligations to make room for this request, then go ahead and accept.2. Gauge your emotional response if you had to cancel. If you would feel sad, you should go ahead and accept the request.3. Cancel-elation. Imagine that you have accepted the request but it later got cancelled. If you can taste joy, you have experienced cancel-elation.

    27. I enjoyed how the open format gave Dan room to flex his funny muscle, he really is a very funny guy.But as much as I enjoyed the the easy going and slightly informative style I have found his other work to be profound so in comparison it scores a three.I think his other work anchored me on a higher expectation:)

    28. I had read most of these in Dan Ariely's regular column - somehow before buying it I thought it was a graphic novel version of some of his usual theories, but it's definitely not that. (The comics are mostly funny, though.) It was an entertaining, light read - sometimes it felt a little weird to have a jokey answer to what felt like serious questions, though.

    29. I have read most of the Ariely's books, so this one was not that interesting for me. Since, i also follow his blog, the questions were not titillating enough ( Diminishing Marginal Utility ). Overall, its a nice easy read where you can take it up and finish it at leisure.The illustrations on each page kept the humour alive - William Haefeli's work is worth a follow. :)

    30. This is the first time I'm reading a question-answer-advice-styled book written by a male author.It's an easy and fun read. Half of the book are cartoons, illustrated by William Haefeli.Because of the short format, it's impossible to dive too deep into any one concept. It was interesting enough that certain situations in real life reminded me of what Ariely mentioned in this book.
