Thinking in Bets: Creating Smarter Decisions When You Don’t Have All the Truth
Annie Duke is a World Series of Poker bracelet winner, the winner of the 2004 Tournament of Champions and the only woman. Now, as an expert speaker and conclusion strategist, she and her cognitive psychology graduate job at UPenn merge her poker experience. She’s a founder of How I Decide, a nonprofit that creates resources and curricula to improve decision making and thinking abilities that are critical for under-served middle schoolers.
Thinking in Bets offers a persuasive, and eminently useful way to consider life’s decisions. Annie Duke has written an frequently humorous, and important, book which will help you understand your own shortcomings–and make smarter decisions because of this. 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 stress, as Annie Duke and poker played. At heart, it is about how we distinguish luck in decisions, how we could enhance the ability part of their equilibrium and skill,while knowing that luck will always play a part.
