Prudent decision making made easy

by Winfield on 7/2/2009

[Note: Review written from a publisher's advance copy.] Prudent Decision Making explores the implications of sound decision-making when the consequences of those choices are potentially life altering.The author is a retired Marine Corps officer and former university researcher. Patrick Gould combines clearly communicated theory-based principles and a wealth of practical advice in this book. He gives his readers a fresh way to look at how and why certain types of individuals make the choices they do. The three decision-making themes emphasized in this work are: 1) Understanding crowd psychology and the unconscious role a decision-maker will play in it, 2) Recognizing and then developing a capacity for self-discipline and sincere humility and finally, 3) Learning how to analyze new information through both a quantitative (objective) and qualitative (subjective) lens. Combined, these three pillars help individuals become better decision-makers.
