Product Description

From the Back Cover

How many of us have made some poor decisions or have been trapped by indecision? Why were so few of us ever taught, in school or on the job, how to make better decisions?

''Yes' or 'No'',from the bestselling author Spencer Johnson, is a brilliant and highly effective system that any of us can use to make better business and personal decisions – naturally and easily.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Donald Mitchell HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 19 May 2004
Format: Paperback
As a management consultant whose practice heavily involves helping people become better problem solvers and someone who co-authored a book about better problem solving (The 2,000 Percent Solution), I was struck that this book delivers much more than it claims (the opposite of most self-help books). Although ostensibly about decision making, the book also focuses well on how to identify solutions to important issues and how to be sure you follow through on the decisions you make about those issues.
The book is presented as a fable, in the familiar style of The One Minute Manager (which Dr. Johnson co-authored with Kenneth Blanchard). The fable revolves around a learning exercise called The Hike, which is led by 'the guide,' an outstanding businessman who guides people through the mountains and their decisions. On The Hike, the young man learns the key principles involved in making better decisions (not optimal decisions, just better ones) and gets pointers from hikers who have been on The Hike before. During The Hike, many occurrences are used to explain the key ideas, and specific case histories are described and evaluated. The key points of each chapter are summarized in notes at chapter end, and the principles are captured in a summary at the end of the book as well.
The essence of the decision-making approach here is to test potential decisions analytically (with your intellect) and emotionally (with your heart and feelings). Most people tend to favor one or the other, at the expense of making better decisions.
On the intellectual side, you are encouraged to consider whether you are meeting your real needs (rather than vague desires), getting enough information to make a good decision, and giving the whole situation a thorough evaluation.

It makes sense to have a structured plan when making a decision, this model has been a fantastic model which I have successfull applied to "improve" my decision making skils. A short MUST READ if you want to make "better" decisions. You may also want to get your hands on Rational Emotive Therapy such as a Guide to a Rational living.

Format: Paperback
The tape version (which I heard) may have been enhanced by the reader (Edward Herrman) which had a good relaxed and clear voice. But the way the story goes seemed pretty effective to make one think about the decision in one's life, it made me think about many of my past decisions in a new light. I think I may be able to make better decisions in the future.

Interesting little book, which helps people who cannot make decisions to see what is causing them trouble, and to overcome it.

Like any other book of Jonson he clearly demonstrates his methods with a nice story that is sooo easy to understand and follow.
The only thing I am not happy with in any of his books is the "rush" in the end where everything magically turns amazing because the protagonists
follow his methods. Despite that it's life changing!
