Book Summary: Think TwiceeBook - 2014
Why do smart people sometimes make appalling bad decisions, especially when the stakes are high? According to Mauboussin, it really comes down to the mental software hardwired into the human brain. We genuinely are not well equipped to deal with many of today's most pressing problems. We see the world we want to see rather than letting the facts speak for themselves. Most of us would rather do whatever comes to mind first rather than properly calibrating the evidence which lies at hand and applying that to our decision making. As Think Twice demonstrates, you should try and think twice about your choices to reduce the number of mistakes you make. In this book, Michael Mauboussin explains the three main steps involved in this process. Think Twice is an engaging and easy-to-read book. This guide will help you make better decisions in your personal and professional lives.
