Noreena Hertz Eyes Wide Open
Economist Noreena Hertz explores with Daniel Finkelstein how we make decisions. Are emails destroying your ability to think? How do you know which information sources are credible? Whose advice should you trust? In a risky and information-overloaded world Hertz, an academic and broadcaster, offers Eyes Wide Open, a guide to smarter decisions.
By weaving together cutting-edge research with real-world examples from Hollywood to Harry Potter, NASA to World War II spies, Hertz constructs a path to more astute and empowered decision-making in ten clear steps. With razor-sharp insight and an instinct for thought-provoking storytelling, she offers counterintuitive, effective guidance for making better choices
