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 all are 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 the listener 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.

  • “A manifesto for using the recent behavioral research to help people, as well as government agencies, companies and charities, make better decisions.”

    New York Times Magazine

  • “Utterly brilliant…Thaler and Sunstein teach us how to steer people toward better health, sounder investments, and cleaner environments without depriving them of their inalienable right to make a mess of things if they want to…Nudge won’t nudge you—it will knock you off your feet.” 

    Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness 

  • “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 Liar’s Poker and Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game

  • Nudge is an 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 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, American Prospect
