Daniel Kahneman's article "Before you make that big decision"
It's not so much his performance, as the planning of whole process. I.e. All articles have "aside" sections that summarize the ideas discussed. The narrator reads these without any forethought whatsoever. The page that he's one might have nothing to do with the aside bar, but the minute he finishes the paragraph, he starts reading the aside bar. Aside bars should be read after the concept has been introduced, maybe even at the end of a section. Needs better planning.
