Become a High Efficiency Analytic Decision maker.
We've all been there: faced with a major decision yet overwhelmed by the very data that is supposed to help us. It's an all-too-common struggle in the digital age, when Google searches produce a million results in a split second, and software programs provide analysis faster than we could ever hope to read it. Adapting the geopolitical and historical lessons gleaned from over two decades in government intelligence, Philip Mudd - an ex-National Security Council staff member and former senior executive at the FBI and the CIA - finally gives us the definitive guidebook for how to approach complex decisions today.
Filled with logical yet counterintuitive answers to ordinary and extraordinary problems - whether it's buying a new home or pivoting a failing business model - Mudd's HEAD (High Efficiency Analytic Decision-making) methodology provides listeners with a battle-tested set of guiding principles that promise to bring order to even the most chaotic problems, all in five practical steps:

I have a brother, we started playing hide and seek back in '78. He still hasn't found me.
If you’re having trouble making a decision, this book might be of use to you. I saw Mudd on Charlie Rose and enjoyed the fact that he had, if I recall, a masters in literature. So here you have someone from the CIA writing about decision making connecting it to, essentially, IR (International Relations) who knows how to write.
I think the best way to listen to this book is to ramp up the audio to 1.5x or, if you can keep up with it at 2x that’s actually better as the speed and ideas seem more natural at that rate.
You might want to make use of the Bookmark function as there are some great little thoughts on everyday life that you’ll probably want to share with someone.
DUDE, WHERE'S MY High Efficiency Analytic Decision-Making and the Art of Solving Complex Problems Quickly?
I should have bought the paper book.
The narrator's intonation is suitable for blockbuster trailers, but gets annoying past the first sentences. Not every line should be read with a disproportionate sense of anxiety and importance.
I also wish the author would illustrate the concepts with more business or life examples, instead of always referring to CIA activities. This makes relating to the content unnecessarily abstract.
Overall, I recommend the (paper) read.
