Format:Hardcover
The book is acomprehensive and in depth look at Decision Making. A topic no person who is in charge of choices bigger than "what should I wear" should ignore. Bazerman walk you through Biases,Heuristics, Awareness and Ethics as well as touching on the relevant issues of Negotiations and some common investment mistakes.
Once the tools are at one's fingertips, the hues around you begin to change.
P.S Relying on this review may be flawed: there is an inherant bias: Out of all the people who read this book only those who recognized its use would bother writing a review. This then should not be taken as a REPRESENTATIVE of all reader's views.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful guide on how to make sound, smart decisions February 19, 2009
Format:Hardcover
Consider this scenario: Two groups are playing basketball. One group wears black, the other white. Researchers film each group separately passing a basketball back and forth, and superimpose the two films on a television monitor. They ask research participants to add up the number of passes the players make. Because the separate images of basketballs flying here and there overlap, the counters must pay close attention. Under such circumstances, how many of the observers would fail to see a man dressed as a gorilla stroll through the basketball court while dramatically thumping his chest? Believe it or not, eight out of ten. Scientists call this "inattentional blindness." Distinguished Harvard professor Max H. Bazerman refers to such tests as he explains the concept of "bounded awareness." When people fail to notice information, their lack of perception may preclude them from making sound decisions. Bazerman fills his book with learned insights, fascinating research and intriguing tests. He exposes the mental biases, skewed logic, false premises and misleading emotions that interfere with good decision making. getAbstract recommends this tantalizing book to those who want to understand the nuts-and-bolts of the thinking process, and to enhance their decision-making prowess.

5.0 out of 5 stars We're not so smart August 2, 2007
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Have you ever wondered why some people make such stupid mistakes? Well, we are all prone, hard-wired and influenced to make astounding errors in judgment. Bazerman takes you on a journey into all the reasons why, full substantiated by science. All of it is fascinating. And, hopefully, once you are aware of what is really going on in our own brains we can be aware enough to mitigate those dangerous tendencies and become very clear about what we do.
