Nudge THE HUGELY INFLUENTIAL INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLERFrom Cass R Sunstein and Richard H Thaler, winner of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Economics, Nudge is the book that has changed the way we think about decision making Nudge is about choices how we make them and how we can make better ones 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 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 and original research, the authors demonstrate how to nudge us in the right directions, without restricting our freedom of choice How often do you read a book that is both important and amusing, both practical and deep A must read for anyone who wants to see both our minds and our society working better Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking, Fast and Slow I love this book It is one of the few books I ve read recently that fundamentally changes the way I think about the world Steven D Levitt, co author of Freakonomics Read Nudge – wildweaves.co.uk

  2. I don t understand why this is a runaway bestseller it s just not that enthralling I ve been reading lots of books lately about behavioral psychology and economics why people make the decisions we do, economically and in other life areas But Predictably Irrational and Made to Stick both explore these questions in a muchengaging way Nudge is mostly concerned with how companies and governments can practice what the authors term libertarian paternalism gently, noncoercively pushing p I don t understand why this is a runaway bestseller it s just not that enthralling I ve been reading lots of books lately about behavioral psychology and economics why people make the decisions we do, economically and in other life areas But Predictably Irrational and Made to ...

December bookclub read for my sit in bookclub and when I checked in my book shop for this Book and was directed to the ECONOMICS BUSINESS section I did quite a bit of eye rolling, I had automatically decided I wasn t going to like this book and as christmas reading goes this was going to be a taxing read But I was pleasantly surprised at how readable and relatable the book was and how our decision making can be influenced by Nudges of all kinds and how society reacts to Nudges....

  4.

  5. Libertarians are always annoying, and these two are no exception Their particular brand of libertarianism they call libertarian paternalism and it involves the idea of nudges, which are things designs incentives that push people toward better options Better options would include choosing healthfullier food, not smoking, not driving drunk, enrolling in your company 401 k plan vs not enrolling, lessening your factory s carbon emissions An example of libertarian paternalism of which t Libertarians are always annoying, and these two are no exception Their particular brand of libertarianism they call libertarian paternalism and it involves the idea of nudges, which are things designs incentives that push people toward better options Better options would include choosing healthfullier food, not smoking, not driving drunk, enrolling in your company 401 k plan vs not enrolling, lessening your factory s carbon emissions An example of libertarian paternalism of which they approve is requiring fast food restaurants to list calorie counts More information to help you decide what to eat is good, they think, but banning high calorie menu items outright would constrict freedom, thus bad.The way choices are presented to you is called choice architecture An example o...

  6. I was pleasantly surprised by this book It starts out like many other pop psychology books, describing an array of psychology experiments that are so often in the literature But, at some point in the book, the story takes a turn into a direction that few other books seem to touch Nudge is really about the small, subtle pushes that our modern day world makes to sway one s opinion or real world choices.The book devotes a separate chapter to each of several real world scenarios When a company g I was pleasantly surprised by this book It starts out like many other pop psychology books, describing an array of psychology experiments that are so often in the literature But, at some point in the book, the story takes a turn into a direction that few other books seem to touch Nudge is really about the small, subtle pushes that our modern day world makes to sway one s opinion or real world choices.The book devotes a separate chapter to each of several real world scenarios When a company gives employees a choice among investment plans, how should the be described Should there be a default plan such that, if no expl...

  7. This is a terrific book The authors cover terrain which has been explored recently in a whole slew of books loosely speaking, why we humans persistently engage in behavior patterns which do not benefit us in the long term Their own research, at the University of Chicago, builds upon the work of Tversky and Kahneman in behavioral economics very much in vogue this past few years In the book, they provide a funny, engaging, remarkably clear exposition of the various factors which lead us to m This is a terrific book The authors cover terrain which has been explored...

  8. As an economist, Nudge was a book that I desperately wanted to like Unfortunately, I was disappointed Perhaps my low rating of the book stems from my high expectations of a book co authored by the well regarded behavioral economist Richard Thaler Without such expectations, my rating might have been higher But at the same time, without such expectations, I might not have bothered to read the book at all.The only interesting part of the book is the first part, which consists of the first five As an economist, Nudge was a book that I desperately wanted to like Unfortunately, I was disappointed Perhaps my low rating of the book stems from my high expectations of a book co authored by the well regarded behavioral economist Richard Thaler Without ...

  10. Loy Machedo s Book Review Nudge by Richard H Thaler and Cass R SunsteinI love reading book Books on Thought Provoking, Critical Thinking, Cognitive Science, Business, Biographies, Self Improvement and so on But the most important characteristic I admire and love about a book, is its ability to make something simple and understandable Nudge is one book that fails to qualify the last criteria I presumed that this book was in relation to how we think, how the mind works and connect that to Loy Machedo s Book Review Nudge by Richard H Thaler and Cass R SunsteinI love reading book Books on Thought Provoking, Critical Thinking, Cognitive Science, Business, Biographies, Self Improvement and so on But the most important characteristic I admire and love about a book, is its ability to make something simple and understandable Nudge is one book that fails to qualify the last criteria I presumed that this book was in relation to how we think, how the mind works and connect tha...
