About the Audio Book: Think Twice
How to stop yourself before you make another costly decision.... No one intentionally makes bad decisions. Yet we make them all the time. In fact, some of the worst disasters in recent history - the collapse of major investment banks, the global financial meltdown - were the result of seemingly reasonable decisions made by a lot of smart people. How does this happen?
Michael J. Mauboussin argues that the correct process for deciding well - especially when the stakes are high - conflicts with how our minds naturally work.
When faced with complex situations, our brains revert to simplified patterns that obscure better approaches to the problem. Even when we think were applying logic and reason, were subconsciously succumbing to social or situational influences. Fortunately, we can override our minds default systems - that is, we can counter our intuition - by learning to "think twice".
In this compelling audio book, Mauboussin outlines a disciplined approach to decision-making that will significantly reduce costly mistakes. Through vivid stories from business, sports, science, and everyday life, Mauboussin categorizes common mental mistakes and offers actionable advice for avoiding them, including:
The Inside/Outside View: Take the experiences of others into account
Tunnel Vision: Force yourself to consider alternatives that make you uncomfortable
The Whole Is Smarter Than Its Parts: Dont oversimplify complex problems
Situational Power: Be highly aware of the influence others have on you
The Expert Squeeze: Know when to trust so-called experts, and when not to
