Unthink explores the unconscious decisions we make, and covers a variety of topics, ranging from how we choose politicians and romantic partners to more abstract subjects such as whether we can consciously decide to move our fingers.
The counter-intuitive observations that Chris makes in the book include:
If you want someone to fancy you, wear red and meet them somewhere frightening.
When waitresses repeat customers' orders back to them instead of just saying 'yes' they receive bigger tips.
To reduce your shopping bill, start at the beer and snacks end of the store and work backwards.
If you sit someone in an upright chair when you give them good news they will be prouder of their achievements.
Having a picture of your family on your desk might make you work harder, but you'll be rattier when you get home!
Chris Paley shows us how we can understand ourselves and others better, by having a greater understanding of the way that the unconscious mind has an impact on the way we live our lives.

An Interesting book.
This was a good book but not a great one, there are others in this genre that I would recommend over this one, such as "The (Honest) Truth about Dishonesty: How We Lie to Everyone - Especially Ourselves" By "Dan Ariely" also on Audible.
The narrator and the quality of the recording were very good.
