Description:
Originally published: New York: PublicAffairs.
Real-world, strategic decision-making, where people can and must shape outcomes and outperform rivals, can't follow rules derived from experiments explaining our choice of breakfast cereal. No; as Phil Rosenzweig shows, great decision-making relies on mastering two very different abilities. First, the analytical problem-solving skills associated with the brain's left hemisphere. Second, what Tom Wolfe called 'the Right Stuff': the ability to take calculated risks. From a complete reappraisal of how we use statistics to why overconfidence might not be such a bad thing, this book explains how to balance the two - and get even the most difficult decisions right.
