Descrizione prodotto


When everybody thinks alike, Everyone is likely to be wrong.

The ten words quoted above are, according to Humphrey B. Neill, a potent factor behind the economic booms and busts that blight our civilization. The Mississippi Bubble, Hollands incredible Tulipmania, and the New York stock market crash in 1929 are historic examples of disasters magnified and hastened by the pressure of mass opinion.

In exactly the opposite direction, in the years immediately following the close of World War II, ominous popular forecasts of business recession turned out to be wrong. What actually happened was-a business boom, not a business bust!

The reason is no mystery to anyone versed in the contrary way of thought-the practical application of the Neill Theory of Contrary Opinion. Today, this Theory-which began as one man's quest for a way to solve the puzzles of economic trends-has expanded enormously in both scope and significance.

In THE ART OF CONTRARY THINKING you will find the answer to a question increasingly asked by persons of affairs and influence: Contrary Opinion-what is it?. . .What will it do for me?

2.0 su 5 stelle Disappointing 5 gennaio 2017
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book is a collection of news letters and articles the author wrote over the 1950s and early 1960s. Most are relating to world and domestic economics and politics. To me this book was seldom interesting and I had to force myself to finish reading it. The best part of it is the very last chapter written by Samuel Pettengill. I can't say that I learned anything significant from reading this book. I could not find anything that helps or teaching contrary thinking beyond plain encouragement to think contrary.
4.0 su 5 stelle Great book on why the hell I think differently 30 dicembre 2016
Di Jared B Matson - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Great idea on that nagging feeling of always wanting to be the one person in the room and avoiding group think. Book is part book and collection of essays that allows for pick up and go reading but can be fragmented if you read through for a whole.

Note to the Editor: The spelling errors are frustrating as I am catching them that Word Spell check could have fixed. Shows laziness.
5.0 su 5 stelle Think twice about what you see... 12 agosto 2014
Di David M. Baldwin - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This book will have you looking at things in a completely different way. After reading it, you wont always assume something just happened. You will wonder why it happened. Did the small plane just crash or did someone tamper with the engine so it would crash shortly after take off? Give things some might change your mind and realized things don't often look as they appear.

4.0 su 5 stelle Excellent book for budding contrarians 24 agosto 1999
Di Robert Stoll - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
Mr Neill lays out in short, specific chapters, his arguments for why popular opinions often times turn out to be wrong, while the opposite, contrary opinion, would turn out to be corrrect. The historical examples he uses make one wonder if the "New Economy" of the 1990's is really just a precursor to the types of events seen in the late 1920's/early 1930's and the early 1950's, when prominent economists touted a New Era of prosperity (we all know what the happened afterwards).
Mr. Neill also cites past writers who analyzed the behavior of man, and how he gets caught up in the "herd". While sometimes getting off the subject, Mr. Neill lays out a clear framwork of how one assesses what the "popular" opinion is, and how to teach yourself not to get caught up in the herd and to think independantly.
A highly recommended book for those who wish to understand how contrary minds think, or for those who need a "refresher" (getting your mind out of a rut according to Neill).

4.0 su 5 stelle Really Good Read 25 gennaio 2014

Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
This is a really good read illustrating the madness of crowds and the virtues of contrarian thinking. I would suggest anyone with a bit of time on their hands interested in expanding their independent thought process to have a look at this book.
