Review

'Engrossing...gripping...moving...full of fascinating facts. ... Lehrer's on similar territory to Malcolm Gladwell's BLINK and James Surowiecki's THE WISDOM OF CROWDS but more than earns his place on the shelf alongside them.' -- Daily Mail

'Fascinating...compelling...a great read. It might even improve your life. Not many books offer both.' -- New Scientist

'Jonah Lehrer is a brilliant young writer. His clear and vivid writing -- incisive and thoughtful, yet sensitive and modest -- is a special pleasure.' -- Oliver Sacks

'Should we go with instinct or analysis? The answer, Lehrer explains in this smart and delightfully readable book, is that it depends on the situation. Knowing which method works best in which case is not just useful but fascinating. Lehrer proves once again that he's a master storyteller and one of the best guides to the practical lessons from new neuroscience.' -- Chris Anderson, editor-in-chief of WIRED and author of THE LONG TAIL

Cash or credit? Punt or go for first down? Deal or no deal? -- life is filled with puzzling choices. Reporting from the frontiers of neuroscience, and armed with riveting case studies of how pilots, quarterbacks, and others act under fire, Jonah Lehrer presents a dazzlingly authoritative and accessible account of how we make decisions, what's happening in our heads as we do so, and how we might all become better `deciders.' Luckily, this one's a no-brainer: Read this book.
-- Tom Vanderbilt, author of TRAFFIC: WHY WE DRIVE THE WAY WE DO (AND WHAT IT SAYS ABOUT US)
