**Beware: This course has the potential to change YOU**
When I saw the trailer for his MOOC, it was nothing short of awesome, so I enrolled right away. Today, I am glad I did that. This course is a great example of what MOOCs should be and can be.
This course talks about the biases that prevent us from making informed decisions. Therefore, it has roots in Science and Psychology. We live in a world where politicians, salespeople, and marketing agencies (to name a few) use different psychological factors to influence our thought process and we end up making bad choices (unintentionally) . This course informs you of those so that you can make better decisions. Decisions that are backed by reason and not just your intuition. This is your guide to knowing a little more about your mental limitations and how you can be more aware of them.
It will help you develop a rigorous method of finding stuff out using the Scientific Method on your own.
The professors follow a very interactive mode of instruction. You never feel as if they are university professors because they 'run the show' as if it were a program on National Geographic or the History channel. They have tried everything to make the content engaging and interesting. They visited notable people across the globe so that the students can learn from the masters themselves and that surely would have taken a lot of their time. The interviews, exercises and discussions were interesting.
I strongly recommend this MOOC
