b Why are group decisions so hard b br br Since the beginning of human history people have made decisions in groups first in families and villages and now as part of companies governments school boards religious organizations or any one of countless other groups And having more than one person to help decide is good because the group benefits from the collective knowledge of all of its members and this results in better decisions Right br br Back to reality We ve all been involved in group decisions and they re hard And they often turn out badly Why Many blame bad decisions on groupthink without a clear idea of what that term really means br br Now i Nudge i coauthor Cass Sunstein and leading decision making scholar Reid Hastie shed light on the specifics of why and how group decisions go wrong and offer tactics and lessons to help leaders avoid the pitfalls and reach better outcomes In the first part of the book they explain in clear and fascinating detail the distinct problems groups run into br br They often i amplify i rather than correct individual errors in judgment br They fall victim to i cascade effects i as members follow what others say or do br They become i polarized i adopting more extreme positions than the ones they began with br They emphasize i what everybody knows i instead of focusing on critical information that only a few people know br br In the second part of the book the authors turn to straightforward methods and advice for making groups smarter These approaches include silencing the leader so that the views of other group members can surface rethinking rewards and incentives to encourage people to reveal their own knowledge thoughtfully assigning roles that are aligned with people s unique strengths and more br br With examples from a broad range of organizations from Google to the CIA and written in an engaging and witty style i Wiser i will not only enlighten you it will help your team and your organization make better decisions decisions that lead to greater success br, In Franklin Delano Roosevelt gave a State of the Union Address that was arguably the greatest political speech of the twentieth century In it Roosevelt grappled with the definition of security in a democracy concluding that unless there is security here at home there cannot be lasting peace in the world To help ensure that security he proposed a Second Bill of Rights economic rights that he saw as necessary to political freedom Many of the great legislative achievements of the past sixty years stem from Roosevelt s vision Using this speech as a launching point Cass R Sunstein shows how these rights are vital to the continuing security of our nation This is an ambitious sweeping book that argues for a new vision of FDR of constitutional history and our current political scene, b For nearly four years Cass R Sunstein bestselling author and President Obama s Regulatory Czar helped to oversee a revolution in better government He explains how and why and what comes next b The future of government arrived four years ago Government became simpler it became smarter and Cass Sunstein was at the center of it all Drawing on state of the art work in behavioral psychology and economics Sunstein as administrator of the powerful White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs OIRA quietly helped save the nation billions of dollars while preventing thousands of deaths and countless illnesses and accidents All this was accomplished in part through the extraordinary power of nudges low cost seemingly modest policies that preserve freedom of choice In combination with smart disciplined cost benefit analysis nudges are simplifying government and making it far more effective br br

Administration and projecting forward into a data driven future i Simpler i provides a new understanding of how government can work, There s Santa Claus Shakespeare Mickey Mouse the Bible and then there s Star Wars Nothing quite compares to sitting down with a young child and hearing the sound of John Williams s score as those beloved golden letters fill the screen In this fun erudite and often moving book Cass R Sunstein explores the lessons of Star Wars as they relate to childhood fathers the Dark Side rebellion and redemption As it turns out Star Wars also has a lot to teach us about constitutional law economics and political uprisings br br In rich detail Sunstein tells the story of the films wildly unanticipated success and explores why some things succeed while others fail Ultimately Sunstein argues Star Wars is about freedom of choice and our never ending ability to make the right decision when the chips are down Written with buoyant prose and considerable heart em The World According to Star Wars em shines a bright new light on the most beloved story of our time
