    By synthesizing current research in the social sciences, Schwartz makes the counterintuitive case that eliminating choices can greatly reduce the stress, anxiety, and busyness of our lives. He offers eleven practical steps on how to limit choices to a manageable number, have the discipline to focus on the important ones and ignore the rest, and ultimately derive greater satisfaction from the choices you have to make.

    What made the experience of listening to The Paradox of Choice the most enjoyable?

    The second half was useful because it was expanded material built on the first half which was material I had already read in other works.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Paradox of Choice?

    I often got distracted by the way the reader would just read what we're obviously section headers straight through and continue on to the text of the section. I had to mentally stop to put the organization of the work together in my head when a section header should have been an obvious part to help organize it. Setting section header off in the reading, as in the actual text, would make the reading much more coherent.

    This is not the first audio book to be read this way, but it certainly was distracting to me.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ken Kliban’s performances?

    Not in non-fiction


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No
