Annie Duke brings her background in cognitive science and poker together to understand how we make decisions. In the workplace, success depends on how we make those choices through decision strategy. Everyone, from the newest employees to the principals, is part of the continuous cycle of deciding and learning. These same strategies determine the quality of choices in relationships, health, and lifestyle, investing and consumerism, and parenting. Drawing on the unique combination of training as a behavioral scientist and 20 years as a professional poker player, Annie Duke offers frank assessments of the challenges presented by decision strategy and practical ways of confronting those challenges.
Annie’s new book, Thinking in Bets http://amzn.to/2E1FBGT, publishes February 6th but is available for pre-order. This is one of a handful of books that I read cover to cover this year.
