It is surprising that how few people can see things from different perspective and present and teach this to other people. This book discusses thing that we do everyday without appreciating their weight.
.

.
.This work by C Sunsteiin discusses vital role of phenomenon of conformity in the life of humans.
He intellectually dissects role of conformity in every aspect of human interactions right from prehistoric times to present socioeconomic interactions.
.

.
Consciously or subconsciously everybody seeks social affirmation and this has deep impact on every decision including law, religion, beauraucracy, fashion, culture. We tend to overestimate logic followed by masses, even if our inner knowledge is contradictory.
.

But it is strange how even a single and confident non conformist may change whole cascade and start new revolution or war or fashion or fad or fake news.
.
There is detailed spotlight on mechanics of conformity and its impacts.
Impact on jury, universities, beauraucrats, doctors, criminals, offenders is enlighting.
.
Only thing I hope could have been better was details of scientific research and data on courts and political thinkers.
.
For amateur reader these details may be speed brakers and message is easily delivered in rest of the text.
.
It will open your eyes to the origin of harmful mass opinions on vital issues like immigration, global warming, religion, freedom, diversity, terrorism etc.
.
Information about various cascades is interesting and internet has multiplied it many times.
.

It is eyeopening and enlightening text which could have consisted less of research data.

Thanks netgalley, author and publisher for review copy in exchange of honest review.
