In this entertaining collection of psychological essays, McRaney explores the ways in which we deceive ourselves. Through metacognition, thinking about thinking, we can begin to unravel the logical fallacies that cloud our everyday decisions. It’s a great companion to the You Are Not So Smart podcast!

The Devil’s Only Friend by Dan Wells
I am eagerly awaiting the next installment of Dan Wells’s John Wayne Cleaver series. The most unlikely of heroes, John Wayne Cleaver, shares common struggles: growing up in a small town, raised by a single mom, juggling school with friendships and his first love. He is also a sociopath who can see demons masquerading as humans. “The Devil’s Only Friend” follows the first three books, I Am Not A Serial Killer, Mr. Monster, and I Don’t Want To Kill You. It will be released on June 16 and I’m on the waiting list.
