Editorial Reviews

Review

"A masterful introduction to the state of the art in managerial decision making. Surprisingly, it is also a pleasure to read."
Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking, Fast and Slow

"Finally! Actionable advice for leaders based on decades of decision science. Succinct, accurate, and even-handed. I loved it!"
Angela Duckworth, bestselling author of Grit

"Brilliant, fun, and wise -- a tremendous guide to sensible decision-making, in business and in daily life. Filled with vivid stories and big lessons, this book might well be the best investment you make this year."
Cass R. Sunstein, Robert Walmsley University Professor, Harvard University, and author of How Change

"An elegant synthesis of the best scientific work on human judgment that will be useful whether your aspirations in life are modest -- become a smarter consumer of news-or whether they are grandiose -- run a large company or country."
Philip E. Tetlock, bestselling co-author of Superforecasting

"Olivier Sibony has written the best, funniest, most useful guide to cognitive bias in business. If you make decisions, you need to read this book."
Safi Bahcall, bestselling author of Loonshots

"Olivier Sibony has that rare and magical ability to take complex concepts and package them in fast-paced, easy-to-understand narrative. Filled with actionable advice on how to make better choices, this book should be required reading for anyone looking to improve their decision process."
Annie Duke, bestselling author of Thinking in Bets

"You're probably familiar with many of the biases that can ruin your decisions. The question is what to do about them when you're building your business strategy. Olivier Sibony has some compelling answers. Drawing on his extensive experience as a consultant and his impressive knowledge of behavioral science, he shows how you can make your team smarter than the people in it."
Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Give and Take --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
