Publisher's Summary

Are you overwhelmed with information and paralyzed by pressure? Constantly missing opportunities because your intuition is wrong? You can't just rely on your gut instinct or "hunch" when you make decisions. There's a science to improving your critical thinking, weighing pros and cons, and avoiding the traps that take you down the wrong path. We can systematically make decisions that will improve our lives if we just know what to focus on. Learn why most of our instincts about decisions are flat-out wrong. The Science of Intelligent Decision Making will teach you to seize control of your life and make sure your decisions aren't making you. This book cites years of research and scientific studies about what constitutes a great decision and the factors that will inevitably lead you there. It is an in-depth look at human nature and psychology and why we think the way we do. It's largely subconscious, but easily overcome with the methodologies described within. Think more quickly and more thoroughly - at the same time. Peter Hollins has studied psychology and the human condition for over a dozen years. This book contains tactics pulled from his personal experience, as well as some of the most famous studies in decision theory and social psychology to help you make snap decisions. Beat analysis paralysis.

Are you indecisive?

I’ve struggled for years with making quick, “simple” decisions. What should have been “easy” nearly always morphed into “complex”. This was not a problem at work where it’s always clear to me what tack to take. It was everyday life that I found most challenging.
Peter’s book gives many easy techniques for reaching intelligent decisions - I’ve found nearly all of them helpful. Often we make life harder for ourselves with by utilizing ineffective decision making habits. I highly recommend “The Science of Intelligent Decision Making”. Knowing how to make wise decisions is energizing & motivating.

great little book, very practical

the only regret I have about this book is not writing it myself..
I have listened to it twice and will listen to it several times more as well as listen to other books by the same's concise and can get the same info in other books but spend way more time and energy filtering..not too much info, but not skimpy either..well organised and the narrative is easy listening, entertaining...great job Pete!!!
