so that's what executives talk about

Would you listen to HBR's 10 Must Reads on Making Smart Decisions again? Why?

yes. so much information, I want to take notes next listen

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

since this isn't a story per say, hard to apply. But perhaps a change of voice for the examples. Even a change for the different chapters.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

He was fine. Just more variety. I listened at the gym and sometimes turned it off because of sameness. That doesn't seem to happen with other features.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I think learning about being preprogrammed and looking for the answer I want instead of the truth.

Any additional comments?

This is a vey helpful book.

Some good and some very weak content

Some of the content is insightful, but the role of luck, as well as real human behaviour, is overlooked by some of the contributors.
