Choice architecture is an interesting topic and the authors address framing and default options in a compelling way.
No. The authors were unable or unwilling to keep their, onesided, political views out of the book. Moreover, those views did not enhance the content in any meaninful way (unless politics is what you're looking for).
Pleasing Balanced Appropriate
Too often it seems that university professors fall victim to the echo chamber in which they operate. Sadly, Thaler and Sunstein probably felt they restarined their political leanings when, in fact, they crept (unwelcome to this reader) into every chapter.
This is mostly a very interesting, surprising and insightful (audio)book.
But, maybe due to the expanded nature of this version, it becomes at times a little boring on the details. It does this by repeating quite some existing literature but more importantly by discussing at length the details of loans, mortgages, etc.
That said, the book is full of practical tips and tricks about how to improve decisions and behavior on a large scale.
This is a poor attempt at riding the wave of interest in Malcolm Gladwell's style. This book combines grating narration with lessons including: eat healthy food, save more money for your future and other obvious suggestions that need no explanation. You would be better off re-reading any of Gladwell's books and skipping Nudge. I love Audible but this book is down-right boring; I finished it on principle but my wife (smarter than me) stopped after 45 minutes.
When I picked this book, I was very enthusiastice. However, after going through the first few chapters I found the book rather repetitive. It goes on-and-on on US healthcare policies and 401K. Large sections of the book is particularly irrelevant and boring if the reader is outside of the US.
