Every day we make decisions: about the things that we buy or the meals we eat; about the investments we make or our children's health and education; even the causes that we champion or the planet itself. Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. We are all susceptible to biases that can lead us to make bad decisions that make us poorer, less healthy and less happy. And, as Thaler and Sunstein show, no choice is ever presented to us in a neutral way. By knowing how people think, we can make it easier for them to choose what is best for them, their families and society. Using dozens of eye-opening examples the authors demonstrate how to nudge us in the right directions, without restricting our freedom of choice. "Nudge" offers a unique new way of looking at the world for individuals and governments alike. This is one of the most engaging, provocative and important books you will ever read.

1.0 Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness
This book is not what I thought it would be.I somehow thought it would be about how to improve decision *making* for, say, yourself (which would impact things like Health, Wealth, and Happiness), but it was about choice architecture and how to frame choices to make people choose what you think they ...

I couldn't continue to subject myself to a man referring to a 'normal society' as Homer Simpsons. When he started out by explaining to the reader (me) what a footnote is he lost my respect. I can't take seriously a person who can't treat his audience as his equal. I see his point, and it's true, we ...

3.0 Nudge: Improving Decisions about Health, Wealth, and Happiness
Much of the content is repetitive if one has read other behavioral economics books. But the authors' takes on Marriage (Privatizing), Savings, Green taxes, etc were new and thought-provoking
