i highly recommend the following 3 books:

1. judgement under uncertainty : heuristics and biases (eds. kahnemann et al)

2. fooled by randomness (nassim nicholas taleb)

3. the black swan (nassim nicholas taleb)

i am taking time off to do a review of the field for the magazine and i will post it as soon as i am done. meanwhile, i feel this is a good introduction to cognitive biases and their applicability to economics/finance/life.

now i need to look at myself and wash clean of superstition.
