Become a more confident, independent, and successful decision maker—savvy to how your emotions, moods, and habits can trip you up.
In our fast-moving world, we're overloaded with differing opinions, conflicting data, and changing advice. But how thoroughly do we scrutinize those we listen to? Are we open to new ways of tackling problems or constrained by how we've made past decisions? How much do we challenge ourselves?
By combining stories from Hollywood to NASA with the latest in brain science, Noreena Hertz reveals the extent to which life-altering, business-affecting, policy-determining, and health-defining decisions are based on partial information, assumed wisdoms, corrupted data, and insufficient scrutiny. In this essential guide, she offers practical ways to make better, smarter choices and more accurate predictions—in your personal life and at work.About the Author:
