Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work


AUTHOR : Chip Heath

PUBLISHER : Crown Business

PRICE : $19

GENRE : Business & Investing

Chip and Dan Heath, the bestselling authors of “Switch and Made to Stick,” tackle one of the most critical topics in our work and personal lives: how to make better decisions.

Research in psychology has revealed that our decisions are disrupted by an array of biases and irrationalities: We’re

overconfident. Unfortunately, merely being aware of these shortcomings doesn’t fix the problem any more than

knowing that we are nearsighted helps us to see.

In “Decisive,” the Heaths

introduce a four-step process designed to counteract these biases. Written in an engaging and compulsively readable style, Decisive takes readers on an unforgettable journey, from a rock star’s ingenious decision-making trick to a CEO’s disastrous acquisition, to a single question that can often resolve thorny personal decisions.
