    Inhaltsangabe

    Poker champion turned business consultant Annie Duke teaches you how to get comfortable with uncertainty and make better decisions as a result. 

    In Super Bowl XLIX, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll made one of the most controversial calls in football history: With 26 seconds remaining, and trailing by four at the Patriots' one-yard line, he called for a pass instead of a handing off to his star running back. The pass was intercepted, and the Seahawks lost. Critics called it the dumbest play in history. But was the call really that bad? Or did Carroll actually make a great move that was ruined by bad luck? 

    Even the best decision doesn't yield the best outcome every time. There's always an element of luck that you can't control, and there is always information that is hidden from view. So the key to long-term success (and avoiding worrying yourself to death) is to think in bets: How sure am I? What are the possible ways things could turn out? What decision has the highest odds of success? Did I land in the unlucky 10 percent on the strategy that works 90 percent of the time? Or is my success attributable to dumb luck rather than great decision making? 

    Annie Duke, a former World Series of Poker champion turned business consultant, draws on examples from business, sports, politics, and (of course) poker to share tools anyone can use to embrace uncertainty and make better decisions. For most people, it's difficult to say "I'm not sure" in a world that values and even rewards the appearance of certainty. But professional poker players are comfortable with the fact that great decisions don't always lead to great outcomes and bad decisions don't always lead to bad outcomes. 

    By shifting your thinking from a need for certainty to a goal of accurately assessing what you know and what you don't, you'll be less vulnerable to reactive emotions, knee-jerk biases, and destructive habits in your decision making. You'll become more confident, calm, compassionate, and successful in the long run. 

    Includes a bonus PDF of charts and graphs.

    A book which could, if understood and practiced by a majority of people, eventually change human social structures to a possibly more rationally constructed environment - which could provide a healthier foundation for living togehter...but thats only one possible outcome...

    It’s basically a must read! :)

    Perspective

    This is an interesting book especially for introduction into biases and how to recognise and deal with them much better. The author does a great job drawing parallels between her poker experiences and decision making in life. The one star deduction is because at some point it feels like repetition of what was already covered in the previous chapters.

    Fast ‚read‘ but powerful tipps..

    Great book, finished it within two evenings.
    Worth listening to it (in my case as a trader).
