How reliable is our intuition? How much should we depend on gut-level instinct rather than rational analysis? In this engaging book, David G. Myers shows us that while intuition can provide us with useful-and often amazing-insights, it can also dangerously mislead us. "Myers' book brilliantly establishes intuition as a legitimate subject of scientific inquiry."-Michael Shermer, Los Angeles Times Book Review "A lively and thorough review of the powers and pitfalls of gut instinct."-Eric Bonabeau, Harvard Business Review "[Intuition is a book] that may help you make optimal use of your intuition...[It] offers scientific grounding in the subject and practical steps for becoming more intelligently intuitive."-Money Magazine's e-mail newsletter "Delightfully readable and deliberately provocative."-Publishers Weekly (front cover) "Entertaining, intelligent, and easy to read, Myers's book offers an abundance of research findings dealing with what is more aptly called the 'nonconscious' mind."-Choice "Intuition is a one-of-a-kind book by one of the best writers in psychology.
Exceptionally reasonable, totally up-to-date, and responsible, the book has the potential to be a classic in the field."-Robert J. Sternberg, 2003 president, American Psychological Association
David G. Myers, John Dirk Werkman Professor of Psychology at Hope College, is also the author of The American Paradox: Spiritual Hunger in an Age of Plenty and A Quiet World: Living with Hearing Loss, both published by Yale University Press.
