Recommended to Jim by: Mark Storey

I like to pick up one non-fiction for every two fiction books I read. I ran across this in a list that my friend Mark Story had read and the title intrigued me. Overall the book was enjoyable, but it did, at times suffer from one of the major problems I and some of my other friends see in non-fiction. There were many very dry chapters where the author related his conclusions to studies he and other had performed. Not being in the field of psychology, I found that I was yawning through many of those. The good news is that I did grasp his conclusions and I found them to be extremely enlightening with regard to how we humans make decisions. Further, I found that his policy recommendations confirm many of my own leanings in this regard and I am grateful for the research that he presented to back up these ideas.
