    A passionate polemic in favor of pausing to think, not blink. What do these scenarios have in common: a professional tennis player returning a serve, a woman evaluating a first date across the table, a naval officer assessing a threat to his ship, and a comedian about to reveal a punch line? In this counterintuitive and insightful work, author Frank Partnoy weaves together findings from hundreds of scientific studies and interviews with wide-ranging experts to craft a picture of effective decision making that runs contrary to our brutally fast-paced world.

    What made the experience of listening to Wait the most enjoyable?

    From the world of milliseconds to the time in years and centuries, the author makes very good arguments of why it is often better to allow the right amount of time we have before we make a decision, especially for decisions that are not in our field of expertise. I think this book balances well with Gladwell's "Blink" which makes the argument that for an experienced experts a blink maybe all it takes.
    At times repetitive but overall very interesting read. Very good narration.


    Any additional comments?

    Can be very helpful in live's decision-making
