Invisible Gorilla Revised Summary

The Invisible Gorilla: And Other Ways Our Intuitions Deceive Us by Christopher Chabris and Daniel Simons, (©2010, CROWN: New York, NY.) is about six everyday illusions that profoundly influence our lives. They are the illusions of attention, memory, confidence, knowledge, cause, and potential. These are distorted beliefs we hold about our minds that are not just wrong, but wrong in dangerous ways. Once you know about these illusions, you will view the world differently and think about it more clearly. You will recognize when people are taking advantage of illusions in an attempt to obfuscate or persuade. Seeing through these veils will help connect you with reality. I will soon post a summary of Cathy Davidson’s Now You See It which draws heavily on this book.

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from
    an established blog. Is it tough to set up your own blog?
    I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.
    I’m thinking about setting up my own but I’m not sure where
    to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Appreciate it

  2. I paid the guys at http://www.gorges.us to set up my blog, which is a modification of the standard WordPress blog. If you can’t afford to pay someone to get you going, you can consider using a crowd sourcing service like Kickstarter or Indegogo to raise the necessary funds. Otherwise you can just go to WordPress and see if you can set up your own for free. I don’t think you have to be too tech savvy to do so. Good luck. Let me know if you get something going.
