A fine book on unreason, with a fairly British
perspective but having a decent global view, is
Francis Wheen's "How mumbo-jumbo conquered the world."
 It shows how we've been regressing since the
enlightenment in so many ways, and how our financial
experts are still as deluded as investors in the South
Sea Bubble of 1720. Mildly depressing, but does allow
for some wonderful chuckles at human folly.
