HOW TO DECIDE
SIMPLE TOOLS FOR MAKING BETTER CHOICES
What do you do when you’re faced with a big decision? If you’re like most people, you probably make a pro and con list, spend a lot of time obsessing about decisions that didn’t work out, get caught in analysis paralysis, endlessly seek other people’s opinions to find just that little bit of extra information that might make you sure, and finally go with your gut.
What if there was a better way to make quality decisions so you can think clearly, feel more confident, second-guess yourself less, and ultimately be more decisive and be more productive? Making good decisions doesn’t have to be a series of endless guesswork. Rather, it’s a teachable skill that anyone can sharpen.

Making Smarter Decisions When You Don't Have All the Facts
“I’ve been writing this book since 2015, but it’s the distillation of issues I’ve been addressing since 2002 – and arguably since 1992 or even earlier. During the last half of my 20 years in poker, I developed a pair of mirror-image careers: using my behavioral science approach to teach groups of developing players about poker strategy, and using my poker background to teach business and professional groups about decision-making strategy. I am excited to offer this to you now in book form as Thinking in Bets: Making Smarter Decisions When You Don’t Have All the Facts.” —Annie
