Thinking, Fast and Slow

Well, if you want to be bored and get to no conclusion in reality, this is the book for you!

It tries to describe the fallacies of how we think/take decisions and challenges the common sense approach (which should make it an interesting read). Unfortunately, it has a lot of contrived and sometimes even cultural context-driven examples and some meaningless statistics thrown in.

Maybe the author has a lot of data not shown or have some great conclusions, but they are not present in this book. In fact, I would call the authors challenge to "common sense" a failure for the most part.

There may be some nuggets of wisdom in there, depending on your background, but it is very hard to find, and the extremely boring writing doesn't help.
