Summary

A humoristic practical approach to understanding why decisions are so difficult and what can be done about it.

We think that we fail in decisions because of our own faults.

In Business Decisions: D - Side Practical Decision Making Business Guide, we see this is not the case. Many recent popular science books have gleefully shown how irrational we are in making decisions. However, that is not the main reason why we fail in our decisions.

The real challenge is our failure to grasp the complexity in most everyday life problems.

In Business Decisions: D - Side Practical Decision Making Business Guide, we discover what happens when:

  • An airline pilot has food poisoning from Sushi in Bangkok
  • Why flying is such a hassle
  • Will we get kidnapped by the NSA? We also visit ancient Egypt and learn what the meek engineer does to prevent a flood in the capital, and how it relates to selecting which items you're packing on your next trip to the Caribbean.

Overview of Business Decisions: D - Side Practical Decision Making Business Guide:

  • Business decisions: Complexity is underrated
  • Business decisions: The sushi was poisoned
  • Business decisions: Building pyramids
  • Business decisions: Fusion, packing nothing to Moscow
  • Business decisions: D siding, the road not taken

Your satisfaction is 100 percent guaranteed if you purchase Business Decisions: D - Side Practical Decision Making Business Guide.

Awful

This book was a total waste of time, I stopped half way through. I still don't know what message, answer, or opinion the author is trying to give or who the target audience is. It basically points out various problems individuals and groups face - generally very basic and simplistic examples - and then...just kinda moves on. To say this book is for leadership and business purposes when you cite examples of difficulty prioritizing packing a duffle bag or knowing you aren't always going to get the time or resources you need...is ridiculous. This material is probably more applicable to a high school career preparedness class.
