    Story
    (253)

    Every day, we make decisions on topics ranging from personal investments to schools for our children to the meals we eat to the causes we champion. Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. The reason, the authors explain, is that, being human, we are all susceptible to various biases that can lead us to blunder. Our mistakes make us poorer and less healthy; we often make bad decisions involving education, personal finance, health care, mortgages and credit cards, the family, and even the planet itself.

    Jay says: "An overly long Nudge in the right direction"
    "Heavy on the authors' political views"

    Story
    What did you like best about Nudge? What did you like least?

    Choice architecture is an interesting topic and the authors address framing and default options in a compelling way.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Richard H. Thaler and Cass R. Sunstein ? Why or why not?

    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).


    What three words best describe Sean Pratt’s voice?

    Pleasing Balanced Appropriate


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    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.
