How to Decide: Simple Tools for Making Better Choices Kindle Edition
--Marc Andreessen, cofounder of Netscape and Andreessen Horowitz
"How to Decide is a delightful, practical guide to making better decisions in a complex world. Annie Duke explains exactly how to cut through the biases that prevent most of us from making wise choices and offers readers a toolkit for learning from the past and tackling the future in an uncertain world. I look forward to assigning this book to my Wharton students for many years to come.”
--Katy Milkman, Professor at The Wharton School of The University of Pennsylvania and host of the Choiceology podcast
"What a phenomenal achievement! Written with zest, flair, and compassion, it's a ton of fun, and it's also packed with original ideas."
--Cass R. Sunstein, author of How Change Happens
"Annie Duke gives you the tools you need and tells you how to use them effectively. Smart and practical, How to Decide is the best user's guide to decision-making that you'll find."
--Michael J. Mauboussin, author of The Success Equation
"This is a vitally important book. Simple, powerful and generous, it should be required reading."
--Seth Godin, author of This is Marketing
“No one could explain the process of high-stakes decision-making better than Annie Duke, or make it as entertaining and insightful as How to Decide. The first decision you should make is to read this book immediately!”
--Garry Kasparov, chess grandmaster and author of Winter is Coming
"How to Decide is the perfect guide to decision making that you didn't even know you needed. Clear, engaging, and thought-provoking, it forces even those of us to re-examine our thought processes and question the innermost workings of our minds."
--Maria Konnikova, author of The Biggest Bluff
“Many books teach us why we make bad choices. Few help us make better ones. At long last, Annie Duke has tackled that problem. Her handbook for decision-making isn’t just evidence-based and practical—it’s fun too.”
--Adam Grant, bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take
“You can’t learn how to ride a bicycle by reading physics textbooks. You need to get on the bike and practice. And you can’t become a better decisionmaker by reading micro-economics textbooks. You need to practice by working through the real-world exercises in this state-of-the-art book.”
--Philip Tetlock, author of Superforecasting --This text refers to the paperback edition.
