When it comes to making good decisions, authors and brothers, Chip and Dan Heath, reveal that humans are flawed instruments.
Decisve book coverIn their award-winning, number one New York Times bestseller, Decisive, the Heath brothers present their case with the help of readable and engaging narratives and a hard-to-dispute, four-step process of how humans typically make their decisions (one example being, “You make the choice. But short-term emotion will often tempt you to make the wrong one.”) The remainder of the book is spent presenting a process that can help one make a better decision (widening your options, putting your assumptions through a reality test, attaining distance, and preparing to be wrong). Each section is broken up into more in-depth chapters to guide the reader through a process of self-analysis and discovery. The authors present each case with suggestions and examples of instances in which the reader might have to make a tough choice. At the end of the book, the reader is left with a sense of confidence and peace, ready to take on the next trial and perhaps respond with a more pragmatic answer.
Decisive is an exciting, well-researched text that defies the typical stereotypes of “How to…” nonfiction. True to their past track record of interesting nonfiction (the Heath brothers are also the authors of Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard, and Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die), the Heath brothers bring to the table a novel that asks readers to challenge their decisions, revise their decision-making process, and open their mind to the possibility of being able to do something better than before. After all, making the right decision at the right time can be the final factor that makes all the difference.
