Epley begins by lauding the amazing human capacity to intuit what others are thinking. But pretty soon he is detailing its failings: we are overconfident in our mind-reading abilities; we use our own mind as a template for others, yet confabulate wildly to make sense of ourselves; by stereotyping people we overemphasise differences; we are woefully poor at reading body language; and we constantly misapply our mind-reading talents, dehumanising others while imbuing inanimate objects with human traits. It's compelling stuff. But as I read on, it becomes apparent that Mindwise isn't in fact about personal development success me.
