Title: Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness

Authors: Richard H. Thaler and Cass R. Sunstein

Published: February 2009

Book Summary:

We make poor decisions every day, despite our best efforts. As tempting as it is to simply accept this as a natural inevitability, one we can neither understand nor prevent, Thaler and Sunstein believe we can encourage better decision making by making better choices easier.¬†They¬†present an analysis of “choice architecture” to identify the roots of poor decision making and suggest strategies for “nudging” ourselves towards making healthier, better informed, and more rational decisions.
