What's it about?

The book Decisive (2013) examines the primary obstacles that generally obstruct decision-making, such as having a limited perspective of our problems, immediate emotions, and overconfidence in making future predictions. Therefore, it provides valuable insight into our decision-making processes and how to avoid making bad decisions down the road.
