Good info and for the most part engaging, but I felt like some of it dragged on a bit. ( )

"... in Team of Rivals" it says that "Lincoln's ability to deal with competing viewpoints .. made him such a remarkable president and leader. He intentionally filled his cabinet with rival politicians... . When making a decision, Lincoln always encouraged vigorous debate and discussion." (Page 218)

"You know more than you know. ... This is why people have emotions: they are windows into the unconscious, visceral representations of all the information we process but don't perceive." (Page 248)

"If you're going to take only one idea away from this book, take this one: Whenever you make a decision, be aware of the kind of decision you are making and the kind of thought process it requires." (Page 249-250)

Having finished this book, I've started reading [b:Proust Was a Neuroscientist|822367|Proust Was a Neuroscientist|Jonah Lehrer|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1178687351s/822367.jpg|2839122]. ( )

Sometimes Lehrer uses too many words when he's explaining or telling a story. But I enjoyed learning about what's going on in my head when I make decisions about, well, just about everything! Turns out moral choices are made by one of the "emotional" parts of the brain, and are actually not all that rational. Hmmmm... ( )

It was a mixed read. Sometimes it could be very interesting, but at times it just sort of dragged with anecdotal stories.

I thought it was an interesting read overall, with explanations on how and why we decide the way we do. There's quite a bit of discussion of brain chemistry and anatomy--a few diagrams might have been helpful since most of us are not extremely familiar with the brain's structural makeup. ( )

As Ginger Campbell of Brain Science Podcast would say, this book is for everyone who has a brain. It's easy to read and provides many real life examples and situations, exposing what we know now about how the brain works, as opposed to what has been supposed for all time. Fascinating, well written, and a good introduction to the subject matter. The book might just make you see a new perspective regarding some things about yourself or others.

Lest you think this book is dry based on my review or any others, banish that idea. It's about life, not just your brain. You'll learn why some groups of people will never be different than they are. That alone is worth knowing. ( )

My copy of How We Decide has literally dozens of dogeared pages that I've marked to return to in this reviews as examples of the kind of thing that made me go Wow! and sometimes even buttonhole nearby friends to read them passages.

As an introduction to the cognitive struggle between the brain’s “executive” rational centers and its more intuitive regions, “How We Decide” succeeds with great panache, though readers of other popular books on this subject (Antonio Damasio’s “Descartes’ Error” and Daniel Goleman’s “Emotional Intelligence,” for example) will be familiar with a number of the classic experiments Lehrer describes

Who knows what I want to do? Who knows what anyone wants to do? How can you be sure about something like that? Isn't it all a question of brain chemistry, signals going back and forth, electrical energy in the cortex? How do you know whether something is really what you want to do or just some kind of nerve impulse in the brain? Some minor little activity takes place somewhere in this unimportant place in one of the brain hemispheres and suddenly I want to go to Montana or I don't want to go to Montana.

Good decisions rarely emerge from false consensus.
Think about thinking. If you're going to take only one idea away from this book, take this one: Whenever you make a decision, be aware of the kind of decision you are making and the kind of thought process it requires. ... The best way to make sure that you are using your brain properly is to study your brain at work, to listen to the argument inside your head.
