Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Iyengar writes in a lucid, catchy style, very much in the Malcolm Gladwell vein of pop psychology–cum–social commentary, but with more rigor. The result is a delightful, astonishing take on the pitfalls of making up one's mind.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“No one asks better questions, or comes up with more intriguing answers.” Malcolm Gladwell
“Sheena Iyengar's work on choice and how our minds deal with it has been groundbreaking, repeatedly surprising, and enormously important. She is someone we need to listen to.” Atul Gawande, author of Better and Complications
“Orlagh Cassidy narrates with a scholarly, balanced sensibility that keeps the work appealing.” AudioFile Magazine
