Nudge (Summary)

ebook (Includes supplementary content)

getAbstract Summary: Get the key points from this book in less than 10 minutes.

In this lovely, useful book, Richard Thaler and Cass Sunstein examine choices, biases and the limits of human reasoning from a variety of perspectives. They often amuse by disclosing how they have fallen victim to the limitations of thought that they are describing. The fact that these educated, articulate professionals can fool themselves so often demonstrates how tough it is to think clearly, a point the authors emphasize and even repeat. Humans fall prey to systematic errors of judgment, but you can harness this problematic tendency productively, including by helping others make better decisions. Some of the authors' suggestions may not be practical, but many are – and all are interesting. getAbstract recommends this book to anyone who wants to know how to shape responsible decisions.
