An excellent book that looks at decision making at a neruoscience level. It takes an interesting approach showing how we use both the rational and emotional centers of the brains when we make decisions, the ways in which they help us, and the ways they can steer us wrong. I think this book makes a good counterpoint to Malcom Gladwell's 'Blink' and helps you be more aware of your own thoughts. Using credit cards, buying a house, gambling, and choosing a strawberry jam...being aware of why you choose what you do can help you make better choices in the future.
