Reality-Based Thinking: How everyone–including you–can think better. By Jack Pelham

RBT Cover for SRBTJack Pelham is the founder of the Society for Reality-Based Thinking.  This flagship book has been in the works for over three years now as Jack has researched over 20 books related to the psychology of rational thinking, as well as countless articles.  The book, which should be available for purchase by the end of 2017, seeks to make this expansive topic quite manageable for the lay reader, as well as to put it into perspective from a philosophical point of view.

It’s thesis is that the world’s most fundamental problem is the failure of humans to think as well as we are capable of thinking.  It suggests that we would serve ourselves well to go to the effort to train our minds better, and then to put that training into practice as a sustainable way of life.  What philosophers and cognitive scientists call epistemic rationality is what Jack has renamed “Reality-Based Thinking”—thinking that deliberately seeks to jibe with the real world—as opposed to fanciful or biased thinking that does not.
