The Art of Choosing

by Sheena Iyengar


Sheena Iyengar thinks learning how to make smart choices now is more important today than ever before. She's one of the world's most prominent researchers in the field of decision-making and conductor of the famous 'jam study', in which shoppers could sample either 6 or 24 different varieties of jam at a grocery store. This led to six times more purchases than when fewer jams were available.

In The Art Of Choosing, Iyengar explains what affects our choices, how those choices, in turn, affect us, and what we can do to choose better.
