"Nudge" is about choices-how we make them and how we can make better ones. Authors Richard H. Thaler and Cass R. Sunstein offer a new perspective on preventing the countless mistakes we make- including ill-advised personal investments, consumption of unhealthy foods, neglect of our natural resources, and other bad decisions. Citing decades of cutting-edge behavioral science research, they demonstrate that sensible "choice architecture"can successfully nudge people towards the best decisions without restricting their freedom of choice. S straightforward, informative, and entertaining, this is a must-read for anyone with interest in our individual and collective well-being.

        "Fundamentally changes the way I think about the world. . . . Academics aren't supposed to be able to write this well." --Steven Levitt, co-author of Freakonomics"[An] utterly brilliant book. . . . Nudge won't nudge you-it will knock you off your feet." --Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness"Nudge is as important a book as any I've read in perhaps twenty years. It is a book that people interested in any aspect of public policy should read. It is a book that people interested in politics should read. It is a book that people interested in ideas about human freedom should read. It is a book that people interested in promoting human welfare should read. If you're not interested in any of these topics, you can read something else." --Barry Schwartz, The American Prospect"This book is terrific. It will change the way you think, not only about the world around you and some of its bigger problems, but also about yourself." --Michael Lewis, author of Moneyball aFundamentally changes the way I think about the world. . . .
