Product description

Review

“Brilliant.... The case Schwartz makes... is compelling, the implications disturbing.... An insightful book.” (Christian Science Monitor)

“An insightful study that winningly argues its subtitle.” (Philadelphia Inquirer)

“Schwartz lays out a convincing argument.... [He] is a crisp, engaging writer with an excellent sense of pace.” (Austin American-Statesman)

“Schwartz offers helpful suggestions of how we can manage our world of overwhelming choices.” (St. Petersburg Times)

“Wonderfully readable.” (Washington Post)

“Schwartz has plenty of insightful things to say about the perils of everyday life.” (Booklist)

“With its clever analysis, buttressed by sage New Yorker cartoons, The Paradox of Choice is persuasive.” (BusinessWeek)

Synopsis

The author of The Battle for Human Nature explains why too much choice has led to the ever increasing complexity of everyday decisions, why too much of a good thing has become detrimental to human psychological and emotional well-being, and how to focus our lives on making the right choices. Reprint. 35,000 first printing.
