Ari's book review: Blunder (Why smart people make bad decisions)



In his book Blunder, Zachary Shore writes a compelling argument against having a flat, one- dimensional view of just about anything. So often we hear about the power of choice, and how that life is made up of choices. Sadly, however, we rarely examine the process that precedes choice and or decision -making. Zachary Shore explores many of the possible reasons behind bad decision-making. I found this book insightful and even helpful. The author has quite an impressive list of real life accounts from which he draws from in order to get his point across. The final chapter of the book really got me. The two stories he tells at the end were among some the most interesting I have ever read.
