 “In this wickedly funny and deeply clever book, Matthew Hutson makes a radical claim: All of us, whether we accept it or not, believe in magic. Without these intuitions, he says, we would hardly be human. Through vivid examples and cutting-edge science, Hutson presents a provocative new theory of how we make sense of the world.” — Paul Bloom, Ph.D. author of Descartes’ Baby and How Pleasure Works

 This is a book that you pick up, but can’t put down. Hutson, intelligently and entertainingly, gives us the best kind of book: one that gives us insight to our very core. Highly recommended!” — Ori Brafman, co-author of Sway and Click

 “Matthew Hutson promises to convince the most hard-core skeptics and rationalists that they believe in magic, and he succeeds—with wit and clarity and scientific rigor.” — Sharon Begley, author of Train Your Mind, Change Your Brain

5.0 von 5 Sternen So much to learn, and enjoy 30. Mai 2017
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This is a spirited romp through the science behind spirits, luck and coincidences--or at least our belief in them. There are two ways to live, he quotes (and concludes): as if nothing is a miracle, or everything is a miracle.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the best book to read about how amazingly silly we humans ... 2. Dezember 2015

One of the best book to read about how amazingly silly we humans are with our "magical" beliefs! Love this book. Matthew Hutson's writing style is very enjoyable and filled with lots of interesting facts about our "magical thinking". Men especially with sports interests will get a real kick out of this book! As a woman . . . I thoroughly enjoyed it as well. A must read!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Cheap shots, silly examples, no heart or soul present. 21. März 2017
Von tspia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The author mocks any form of human reverence for material items as magical thinking, focusing upon foolish aspects to prove his point. Easy to do if you discount how people think, feel and react and only focus upon intellect. But that's not who we are, and its arrogant to lump our associations to things in one pile and laugh because science isn't involved.

It is true that people engage in irrational thinking and don't see it that way, but this book trivializes such arguments. I thought this would be a deeper analysis of how we resolve cognitive dissonance, trauma, and stress, with suggestions (i.e. 7 Laws) to identify ways to guard against looking for easy answers.

I shudder at how he might ever explain the concepts of 'heart' or 'soul'. I threw the book away.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Enlightening, Entertaining, Inspiring, Empowering 6. Dezember 2012
Von Kassi Dephinia - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This book defined and answered to my satisfaction questions I couldn't put into words. I wondered why humans are predisposed to religion, superstition, and almost pathological pattern-seeking. I could see some purpose, and both positive and negative effects of various kinds of magical thinking, but I craved understanding. That's what I found in this book, in spades.

I like the way it's written, almost conversational in tone. I like the studies cited, the research and how it's presented. I like how it's organized. I like the personal and often hilarious flavor to the narrative, including stories and experiences from the author's life to reveal where he's coming from. I really like the sense that the author is aware that your mileage may vary. I find a lot of books too rigid in their perspective, and this is especially frustrating in areas of psychology and philosophy, where it's obvious that people's perspectives vary wildly.

I had so much fun reading this book; it was hard to put down. I found it enlightening beyond my wildest expectations. But though I only came for answers, I felt inspired and empowered. I felt I could not only understand magical thinking's use and impact on individuals, history, the species and culture, but also find awareness and acceptance of it in myself. At the end of the book I had more conscious choices over how I experience most everything I perceive. I also found myself thinking magically without effort. It felt much like when I read Mihaly Czikszentmihalyi's `Flow,' drawing the curtain to reveal an amazing experience I'm already having. And now can enjoy more.

Rarely does a book to have such profound and lasting positive effect on me and my view of the world. I feel fortunate to have come across it as I did, relieved I was in the right place to really get the message, and delighted it was written in such an appealing style.

I found `The Seven Laws of Magical Thinking' enlightening, entertaining, inspiring and empowering beyond words. Your mileage may vary, of course.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant and insightful analysis of our wishful self-deception 29. Juni 2015
Von Gerald H. Fuller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Brilliant and insightful analysis of our wishful self-deception, our selective and illogically hopeful approach to reality; our 'well, sure I know, I know, yes, but... desperation.
