"Yes" or "No," from the #1 New York Times bestselling author Spencer Johnson, presents a brilliant and practical system anyone can use to make better decisions, soon and often -- both at work and in personal life.
The "Yes" or "No" System lets us:

  • focus on real needs, versus mere wants
  • create better options
  • see the likely consequences of choices
  • and identify and then use our own integrity, intuition, and insight to gain peace of mind, self-confidence, and freedom from fear

From Publishers Weekly:

This slim self-help guide to decision-making, written in the form of a fable by a coauthor of the bestselling One Minute Manager, involves both head and heart. In it, a mythical guide leading an imaginary mountain hike explains (and participants discuss) the touted decision-making system: having chosen an initial, often wrong action, we should ask a pragmatic question of our head and a private question of the heart--"yes" or "no"--to reach and act upon a final course. This simplisitic but shrewd little book counsels the decision-maker to learn to distinguish between need and want, illusion and reality, and to trust intuition and personal beliefs while avoiding half-truths and decisions made out of fear. 275,000 first printing; $250,000 ad/promo.
