Event description

Description

“Brillant. Buy ten copies and give one to everyone you work with. It's that good.”
—Seth Godin, author of The Icarus Deception

"A mind-bending and indespensible book for entrepreneurs, leaders, and anyone who faces risk on a regular basis."
—Olivia Fox Cabane, author of The Net and the Butterfly


In Thinking in Bets: Making Smarter Decisions When You Don't Have All the Facts, Annie Duke reveals to readers the lessons she regularly shares with her corporate audiences, which have been cultivated by combining her academic studies in cognitive psychology with real-life decision making experiences at the poker table.

“I’ve been writing this book since 2015, but it’s the distillation of issues I’ve been addressing since 2002 – and arguably since 1992 or even earlier. During the last half of my 20 years in poker, I developed a pair of mirror-image careers: using my behavioral science approach to teach groups of developing players about poker strategy, and using my poker background to teach business and professional groups about decision-making strategy. —Annie
