Thinking in Bets offers a persuasive, and eminently useful, fresh way to think about life’s choices. Annie Duke has written an frequently humorous, and important, publication which will allow you to understand your own shortcomings–and make smarter decisions as a result. You can bet on it.
A book both practical and entertaining, based as it is on lessons learned from thousands of hours of decision making under pressure, as Annie Duke and poker played. At heart, it’s about how we distinguish luck in conclusions, how we could enhance the skill component of the balance and skill,while knowing that fortune will play a part.
