Named a Best Book of the Year by TheEconomistand the Financial Times
Every day we make choices—about what to buy or eat, about financial investments or our children’s health and education, even about the causes we champion or the planet itself. Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. Nudgeis about how we make these choices and how we can make better ones. Using dozens of eye-opening examples and drawing on decades of behavioral science research, Nobel Prize winner Richard H. Thaler and Harvard Law School professor Cass R. Sunstein show that no choice is ever presented to us in a neutral way, and that we are all susceptible to biases that can lead us to make bad decisions. But by knowing how people think, we can use sensible “choice architecture” to nudge people toward the best decisions for ourselves, our families, and our society, without restricting our freedom of choice.
Insightful. Useful solutions to the freedom of choice/government mandate dichotomy:)55
Why would i pay $13.99 when i can get the paperback for $9.98.35
It's a fair book.. Not stellar. A few chapters on principles and then many chapters full of examples of "nudges". It was pretty tedious reading. For more exciting reading on a similar subject read the caldini book on persuasion.25
