Description:

Narratives about decision making are often inadvertently tailored primarily to men. Meanwhile, narratives about women in business overlook decision making or offer advice that is unhelpful and can even backfire. How Women Decide fills this gap. It takes on the very real psychological and cultural obstacles women face, asks how these affect decision making, and suggests practical changes for approaching important choices. Using the latest research and her interviews with women in many fields, Huston breaks down the myths and facts around intuition, self-perception, risk assessment, and more. In this guide she persuasively argues that, contrary to popular opinion, women shouldn't feign inflated confidence indiscriminately.

Quotes:

How do women make decisions? In this thoughtful, well-researched book, Huston avoids pop-psych answers that assume all women are the same. Exploding stereotypes, but showing their effect on women's behavior, she offers intelligent guidance to the challenges and process of making decisions., Carol Tavris, , Ph.D., coAuthor of Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me)

None of the myriad decision-making bestsellers considers how their advice should differ for men and women. How Women Decide overthrows such one-sex-fits-all recommendations. It combines engaging stories and compelling research to reveal how our beliefs about men and women drive the way they make choices., Daniel Simons, , Author, of Other Ways Our Intuition Deceives U

How Women Decide blows up several myths about female decision-making that everyone believes, women included. Through thoughtful analysis and lively, entertaining anecdotes, it teaches us what's really happening-how bias works. Every woman needs to read this well-researched and wonderfully reported book. She'll gain confidence through useful tactics for even better decision-making. Men should read it, too; they'll learn tactics that make women great leaders!, Joanna Barsh, , Author, How Remarkable Women Lead & Centered Leadership

Susan Boyce's spot-on performance conveys the intellectual confidence needed for this enlightening book on decision making and gender. Her flawless phrasing and nuanced tone palette promote respect for the author's scholarship and suggestions. Decision making by women is often judged harshly and misunderstood. The author says this is mainly due to lingering gender stereotypes about females' capacity for empathy, decisiveness, commitment, and memory. Providing a cultural overview of these stereotypes that rings true, the author details the types of decision-making errors that we are all prone to make and offers intuitive suggestions for women in particular on how to avoid them. Her writing style, along with the narrator's command of the author's sensibilities, allows listeners to view these dynamics with perspective and step up their decision-making skills., AudioFile Magazine
