Interesting concept taken too far. Extremely repetitive. Unlike others, I found nothing wrong with the narration. The problem is the material. The preface and first chapters were good. After that, I had to keep skipping ahead hoping to find the next concept. Eventually, I just gave up and deleted the book. Yet another new set of choices in today's world: Audio books.
I have recommended it to all my family and close friends because I think they would relate to the concepts and find some helpful ideas about how to manage and live in overchoice world.
...the realization that we are making our children anxious and frazzled with overchoice
I think much more about putting myself in a situation where there are too many choices. Also I am trying to construct my environment so that there will be fewer "wrong" choices .
Great read for perfectionists :)
I read and listen to learn, enjoy and discover.
Very informative book on how we make choices and how these effect us. Information is based on research which are well summarised. The author gives recommendations on how best to deal with ever more increasing choices leaning toward a style of finding what satisfies our needs.
The book may be best read as paper book easy for reference. However it is well done.
Readers are Leaders.
I really enjoyed the examples and case studies. The last chapter of the book is pure Gold.
Easy voice to listen to.
Your Choices Don't Matter....Why More is Less
Hyperbole is the Best Thing EVER!!!!
1:15 to start on the myriad of ways contemporary affluent Americans are "forced" to choose.
Dodgy scientifically when he leaves the arena of "opinion". 93% of Americans are religious? Nope. 16% of Americans self describe as atheist/agnostic. Why fudge numbers like that?
Would have been an excellent op-Ed piece. And you can tell from the amount of filler just to make this into an acceptable book length
This should have been an essay, not a book. Each point gets illustrated by a dozen different examples delivered in a lilting monotony. There are some good points made, which gets the second star.
Really a very interesting addition to the collection of business psychology books that are out there. It analyzes choice and the number of choices and how they affect people and their moods and attitudes and happiness with those choices.
I tend to be somewhat of a maximizer and this book helped me to realize the underlying problem I am facing. This is the first step to simplifying your life for being happier.
