Barking Up the Wrong Tree by Eric Barker

Title:  Barking Up the Wrong Tree

Author: Eric Barker


One of my favorite behavioral science books just because the author included many anecdotes as well as research to back up what seemed contradictory advice to success. Most of what is usually considered sound advice to give can actually be wrong! Why do valedictorians rarely become millionaires and why over confidence can ruin your chances at success. Eric Barker draws his conclusion from various psychology books and topics,  which makes the book a bit like a buffet... you get a taste of everything.
