Don't THINK TWICE about buying this book !!!,
This review is from: Think Twice: Harnessing the Power of Counterintuition (Hardcover)regard decision making as a fundamental skill in life. It's always been a mystherie to me why books on decision making do not attract a large audience. As the author writes: There's a funny paradox with decision making. Almost everyone realizes how important it is, yet very few people practice (let alone read about it).
THINK TWICE is a fantastic book for people interested in decision making. In particular, why we often fail and how we can improve our skills. Mauboussin offers deep insights into the topic. It's not a dummies book. Readers should expect academic rigor in all of Mauboussin's books. The reader finds a framework for thinking twice without a detailed structure. In particular the last chapter, Time to Think Twice", the author offers some guidance in how we can improve our decision making skills immediately.
In my opinion, there used to be only one outstanding book on decision making: ,Smart Choices`. For practical purposes in decision making, like how to use decision trees, it's still the best book in the market. But ,Think Twice` offers a lot more on the subject. In particular why we make mistakes regarding decisions. Now we got two brilliant books on the subject.
