In keeping with the theme of the "limits of rational thinking", I've just finished reading "How We Decide" by Jonah Lehrer. (His blog is here.) In this book, he gives some insight into how we arrive at decisions. What is surprising is the extent to which emotions inform our final choices.
Blink, by Malcolm Gladwell is another must-read on a similar topic: our ability to make decisions based on an unconscious level of thinking. As Gladwell says: "There's a wonderful phrase in psychology--"the power of thin slicing"--which says that as human beings we are capable of making sense of situations based on the thinnest slice of experience."
