This slim self-help guide to decision-making, written in the form of a fable by a coauthor of the bestselling One Minute Manager, involves both head and heart. In it, a mythical guide leading an imaginary mountain hike explains (and participants discuss) the touted decision-making system: having chosen an initial, often wrong action, we should ask a pragmatic question of our head and a private question of the heart--"yes" or "no"--to reach and act upon a final course. This simplisitic but shrewd little book counsels the decision-maker to learn to distinguish between need and want, illusion and reality, and to trust intuition and personal beliefs while avoiding half-truths and decisions made out of fear. 275,000 first printing; $250,000 ad/promo.
