Think Twice

Harnessing the Power of Counterintuition

By Michael J. Mauboussin
Narrated by Walter Dixon / 5 hours 21 minutes

Michael J. Mauboussin argues that the correct process for deciding well-especially when the stakes are high-conflicts with how our minds naturally work. When faced with complex situations, our brains revert to simplified patterns that obscure better approaches to the problem. Even when we think we're applying logic and reason, we're subconsciously succumbing to social or situational influences. Fortunately, we can override our mind's default systems-that is, we can counter our intuition-by learning to "think twice."

In this compelling audio book, Mauboussin outlines a disciplined approach to decision making that will significantly reduce costly mistakes. It involves preparing to encounter common mental traps, recognizing these mistakes in context, and applying the right mental tools to shape better decisions. With practice, you'll begin to catch poor decision making-both yours and others'-as it unfolds in front of you.

Through vivid stories from business, sports, science, and everyday life, Mauboussin categorizes common mental mistakes and offers actionable advice for avoiding them, including:

The Inside/Outside View: Take the experiences of others into account

Tunnel Vision: Force yourself to consider alternatives that make you uncomfortable

The Whole Is Smarter Than Its Parts: Don't oversimplify complex problems

Situational Power: Be highly aware of the influence others have on you

The Expert Squeeze: Know when to trust so-called experts, and when not to

Backed by powerful research and shrewd analysis, this audio book gives you a mental toolkit for spotting dangerous decision traps-and making smarter choices in your professional and personal life.
