A fascinating exploration of how insights from computer algorithms can be applied to our everyday lives, helping to solve common decision-making problems and illuminate the workings of the human mind. All our lives are constrained by limited space and time, limits that give rise to a particular set of problems. What should we do, or leave undone, in a day or a lifetime? How much messiness should we accept? What balance of new activities and familiar favorites is the most fulfilling? These may seem like uniquely human quandaries, but they are not: computers, too, face the same constraints, so computer scientists have been grappling with their version of such issues for decades. And the solutions they've found have much to teach us. In a dazzlingly interdisciplinary work, acclaimed author Brian Christian and cognitive scientist Tom Griffiths show how the algorithms used by computers can also untangle very human questions. They explain how to have better hunches and when to leave things to chance, how to deal with overwhelming choices and how best to connect with others. From finding a spouse to finding a parking spot, from organizing one's inbox to understanding the workings of memory, Algorithms to Live By transforms the wisdom of computer science into strategies for human living.--From dust jacket.… (mais)

Decently curated anecdotes and real-world examples of how algorithmic thinking / approaches can optimize decision-making. The historical background on the origin of certain problems or concepts was presented well. It was interesting to see the intersection between computer science and the behavioral science work I do. Would perhaps have been better as a slower chapter-a-day read rather than something to burn through in two. ( )

I knew about most of these algorithms and theorems already but the book goes beyond that and shows how they apply outside abstract problems. Thought stimulating and well written to boot, in a friendly and informal manner but without cramming in forced humour (my pet peeve in pop-science books). ( )

Excellent book, provides a lot of insight into various interesting problems. Must go back for a second reading.... ( )

Very cool book. ( )

A decent overview of some important algorithms and CS concepts. Great as an introduction to topics you might not know so much about but chapters on topics you know will seem a little underwhelming. ( )
