As a self-help book, which is what this seems to be as opposed to an academic text on the subject, I think it's clearly laid out, readable and with a helpful number of questions to ask yourself. The author spends chapter eight warning you about numbers and how they are presented, warning us about failure to mention baselines and reasonable comparative numbers.

Then later in the book perhaps to test if we have been paying attention the author fails to give a baseline comparison and manipulates the presentation of the scenario to make her point. And she probably does this throughout the book, but perhaps my eyes were not so wide open. I think it was irresponsible for banks to be so highly leveraged so I do agree with the overall point but I nevertheless think that a simple comparison of where Lehman's leverage stood compared to other banks at the time and other banks today would have been a fairer presentation of the above point.
And more in line with the author's own recommendations. Sep 13, Carrie Kilgore rated it it was amazing. Eyes Wide Open: How to make smart decisions in a confusing world. An important book, one that should be read by everyone, and then kept handy as a reference.

She discusses basics from a human body standpoint: how eating, sleeping, and emotions alter our decision-making abilities, and how we can manage them to make better decisions. All in all, she pares down what seems overwhelming to almost everyone living today to much more manageable terms.
I can safely promise that this book will give you greater expertise and confidence in facing the multitude of decisions of modern data-overload life. I received the book for free through Goodreads First Reads. I'm glad to have it on my shelf! Nov 14, Jeremy Hillman rated it really liked it.

I really loved some of the anecdotes and asides. On one level the book follows a format of 'self-improvement' books with lessons to take away but there was plenty here which does encourage genuine reflection on how you make the decisions you do and how we place far too much trust in so-called experts. Jan 02, Janet Roberts rated it it was amazing. I thought this book amazing. Whilst dealing with quite a heavy subject matter, the many stories made it really easy to understand.
I thought this would be a heavy, intellectual book which I'd just glance at, but in fact I became absolutely absorbed, and read it all. Highly recommended. Sep 24, Molly Anna rated it liked it Shelves: giveaways. How do we make decisions? What facts do we consider? How can we be sure we are considering all the facts?
She How do we make decisions? She has solid considerations and techniques to use in discerning various types of information while celebrating the exciting information age we are navigating, and the text aids the reader in feeling less overwhelmed by all the readily available knowledge out there. The most difficult aspect of this book, however, was how long it rambles on with many summative sections, pointless and unfocused facts, simplified common sense, and redundant accounts.
Dec 15, catherine rated it it was amazing. I love the idea of having many friends or colleagues who want to challenge themselves and better themselves in so many ways. I'm fortunate to have my husband who is like this, and one friend. It's sad that the majority of people are just content with being mediocre.

But, I hear you cry, do we really need another book on decision-making? Will that not just make us more neurotic about what to do? There is also some good advice on how to improve our thinking skills. Especially the chapter on why maths matters I found utterly fascinating. Jan 03, Mario Vanhoucke rated it did not like it. Apr 24, Itay rated it it was ok. Aug 02, Mirka rated it it was amazing. So was my brain switched off while reading an expert book on decision making? That's what the book implies we do anytime we listen to experts on any subject. We can even be experts in the field ourselves, still we switch off..
The author points out these are times of great uncertainty for some, for me certainly yes and that's probably why I am clutching at straws and reading books of the kind. Still, I loved the book. Seems to be giving me more strength not to over think in isolation.

There are examples of research showing how crucial decisions of judges,or patients decisions over their health etc. There are great examples of why and how to try and listen to lay experts and to avoid the state of less functioning brain in the presence of experts. I also love Hertz's confidence in our emotions and how they work for us as long as we do pay attention. Sep 13, Jackie rated it liked it Shelves: first-reads.
This book looks into the rationale on how we make our decisions on what we buy, eat, and even the doctors we trust to do our surgery. There are some ideas in the book on how to make better choices and be your own advocate in your life. Nov 02, Pamela rated it really liked it. Very good.

This is a great exercise in critical thinking and a good insight for anyone who doesn't really understand statistics and the way they are manipulated to create a more powerful story than they often deserve.

The motivation behind scientific reporting is also covered well here and Noreena's style encourages almost a sense of outrage at the clumsy or deliberate attempt by media and others to misreport risk and danger. It gives credence to the misquote of A. E Housman that "people use statistics as a This is a great exercise in critical thinking and a good insight for anyone who doesn't really understand statistics and the way they are manipulated to create a more powerful story than they often deserve.
E Housman that "people use statistics as a drunk uses a lamppost, more for support than illumination". Definitely worth a read! Dec 18, Eric rated it really liked it Shelves: , first-reads-giveaways.
www.cheesetimes.co.uk/images/mcdonough/4520-kvk-teknik.php I received this book as part of the first reads program. I really enjoyed this book, and found it comparable to many books written by Malcolm Gladwell. Many of the authors' points are well reinforced by research findings; they are both informative and educational.
Each chapter offers examples of downfalls that many of us practice when thinking and making decisions, as well as ways to overcome these downfalls.
