Review: 'Smart Choices' by John Hammond et al

In Sources of Power, Gary Klein suggests that decision-makers don't always have time for research or deliberation. When you have the benefit of time, however, rational deliberation is a useful strategy, and Smart Choices will teach you how to identify the best of all available options.

In Smart Choices, you'll learn how to analyze your current situation, weight factors appropriately, and make tradeoffs without confusion or emotional distress. You'll also learn how to ensure you've identified the right problem, clarify your ultimate objective, and find other alternatives that will satisfy your objectives while avoiding excessive uncertainty and risk.

Whether you're looking for a new job, making a big-ticket purchase, or evaluating a new business, Smart Choices will help you ensure that you make a prudent decision.
