5.0 out of 5 stars How to make better decisions and help others to make better decisions in all domains of life
Those who have read one or more of Chip and Dan Heath's previously published books already know that they are master raconteurs as well as keen observers of human nature in general and of the business world in particular. I also view them as anthropologists whose scope and depth of knowledge enable them to create a multi-dimensional context for the information, insights,...

This is a very interesting read. Not quite what I expected & more useful to a business environment than a personal one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent evidence-based approach to making better decisions, 6 Jun 2013

The Heath brothers do an outstanding job of bringing together a number of different techniques to improve your choice making, and they wrap it into an easy to remember story based around the acronym WRAP. W is for "widen your perspective", R is "reality-check your assumptions, A is "attain some distance", and P is "prepare to be wrong". Each section has a number of tools for you to use, and crucially (for me at least!) these are each evidence driven. You don't have together word that this stuff works, people have tested and tuned each and every one. Plus, it's all written in an easy to read and compelling style, and laid out in a way that helps you remember and use it all. So, for me, a really great book: useful every day, and will be gifted to my friends and colleagues!

Really liked this CD. It's one we have played and played in the car since we got it. Drove all through France listening to this. Highly recommended.
