Every day, we make decisions on topics ranging from personal investments to schools for our children to the meals we eat to the causes we champion. Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. The reason, the authors explain, is that, being human, we are all susceptible to various biases that can lead us to blunder.

Our mistakes make us poorer and less healthy; we often make bad decisions involving education, personal finance, health care, mortgages and credit cards, the family, and even the planet itself.

Thaler and Sunstein invite us to enter an alternative world, one that takes our humanness as a given. They show that by knowing how people think, we can design choice environments that make it easier for people to choose what is best for themselves, their families, and their society.

Using colorful examples from the most important aspects of life, Thaler and Sunstein demonstrate how thoughtful choice architecture can be established to nudge us in beneficial directions without restricting freedom of choice. Nudge offers a unique new take - from neither the left nor the right - on many hot-button issues, for individuals and governments alike. This is one of the most engaging and provocative audiobooks to come along in many years.

Included in this recording are a bonus chapter and a Postscript that was added in the paperback edition. Download and start listening now!

    " Most of the examples were good, although sometimes using the most extreme case to make a point. Some of the solutions proposed were a little too idealistic, and not viable in reality. "

    " Great idea, not so great book. Just read the first few chapters. "

    " A brilliant book. Explains the nature in which we present choices are inexplicably unbiased and that there is no neutral way to present choices. Having said that the book goes on to explain the applications in a variety of fields. "

    " Ultimately this does not amount ot a clear, coherent political philosophy. Its ideas are good but tend to add up to small, although potentially significant, ways of restructuring what we current do rather than thinking through what we actually want to achieve. "
