I just read Dan's book, Predictably Irrational, and it was really great.

There was a lot of stuff that was applicable to marketing/sales if anyone's interested in that.

I think a better resource on the topic is Dan Ariely, his 4 minute video on the topic at, and his book Predictably Irrational ( - specifically chapter 6). If you're able to take the time to watch the brief video, you'll more than likely buy the book - its amazingly insightful * incredibly useful even to coders.
