David McRaney’s first book, You Are Not So Smart, evolves from his wildly popular blog of the same name. A mix of popular psychology and trivia, McRaney’s insights have struck a chord with thousands, and his blog, podcasts, and videos have become an internet phenomenon.

You Are Now Less Dumb is grounded in the idea that we all believe ourselves to be objective observers of reality—except we’re not. But that’s okay, because our delusions keep us sane.

Expanding on this premise, McRaney provides eye-opening analyses of fifteen ways in which we fool ourselves every day. McRaney also reveals the true price of happiness; why Benjamin Franklin was such a phenom; and how to avoid falling for our own lies. This smart and highly entertaining audiobook will be wowing listeners for years to come.

Quotes & Awards

  • “At every turn, [McRaney] proves that our belief that we are rational, logical beings with a firm grasp on the world is mistaken and yet is the very thing that keeps us happily afloat. An engaging, insightful book of popular psychology.”

    Barnes & Noble

  • “Page after page, readers will be laughing, learning, and looking at themselves in new ways. McRaney is a fine stylist, easily balancing anecdote, analysis, and witty asides…This book is seriously informative.”
