    Jonah Lehrer arms us with the tools we need to figure out how we decide, drawing on cutting-edge research by Daniel Kahneman, Colin Camerer, and others, as well as the real-world experiences of a wide range of "deciders" - from airplane pilots and hedge fund investors to serial killers and poker players. Lehrer shows how people are taking advantage of the new science to make better television shows, win more football games, and improve military intelligence.

    "Picks up where Blink leaves off"
    Overall

    Because the opening of this book uses some the same research that Malcom Gladwell used in Blink at first I thought it was going to be a copycat, but I as I listened the author explained the function of both sides of our mind and how to best use them going far beyond what I had previously read. Using both science and anecdotes he carefully explains how your brain makes decisions and what part to use for what type of decision. This book will literally change the way you think!
