Summary of Der unsichtbare Gorilla by Christopher Chabris, Daniel Simons



In Der unsichtbare Gorilla erzählen die beiden Autoren, wie unsere Wahrnehmung und unser Gehirn zusammenarbeiten und welche Fehler sie dabei machen. Anhand unterhaltsamer Anekdoten und zahlreicher wissenschaftlicher Experimente zeigen Chabris und Simons, wie wir uns für schlauer, selbstbewusster und talentierter halten, als wir es eigentlich sind. Und warum wir nicht unbedingt darauf vertrauen sollten, dass unser Genistreich sicher noch vor uns liegt.
