  • Are you a Maximizer or a Satisficer – and what it means for your decision-making

  • How to stop throwing good money after bad
  • Knowing when doing nothing is your best option
  • Accounting for gendered decision-making styles

From the Back Cover:

Updated and expanded with brand-new research and techniques!

 

MAKE BETTER DECISIONS—EVERY DAY, EVERYWHERE!

  • Leverage the latest advances in behavioral decision-making research
  • Identify and leverage your decision style
  • Learn techniques for reducing common decision biases and errors

When it comes to decision making, your intuition and experiences can often lead you astray. Dr. Stephen P. Robbins translates thousands of studies on decision making into a short, easy-to-read guide that will help you improve the choices that shape your life.

 

You’ll learn the importance of clear goals, not to “throw good money after bad,” the downside of experience, why seeking decisions that are “good enough” may make you happier than trying to maximize, and that sometimes the best decision is to do nothing.

 

Robbins’s techniques can help you improve every decision you make—about your career, finances, business, and relationships.
