Product description

Review

“Similar to Chip and Dan Heath’s Made To Stick and Malcolm Gladwell’s The Tipping Point, this book will appeal to those looking to build their business platform.”
      —
Library Journal



“Thoroughly researched and informative, the book’s clarity and simplicity of structure are quite refreshing. Gino possesses a wealth of well-constructed research and experience—both inside university labs and in the business world. This book is filled with carefully explained studies that have taken many years to collect and establish, as well as many insights from the business consulting world.”
      —
Business World Magazine



“For the general reader desiring to learn more about research studies on some human decision biases and their effects, this book can provide a valuable perspective.”
      —
Choice Magazine



“A powerful survey outlining the entire decision-making process, how it gets derailed, and how to get it back on track.”
      —
Midwest Book Review



“What separates Sidetracked . . . from some other books on decision making is an in-depth exploration of the ‘human’ obstacles as opposed to the ‘organizational’ obstacles that can inhibit sound decision-making processes.”
      —
Business Standard



“If you have always yearned to feel more secure in your decision-making, or at the very least, understand better why even your best-laid plans often go awry, Sidetracked is a straight-forward examination of the forces that affect our decisions which can help raise your awareness and keep you from veering off course.”
