How long has it been since you last read a book that has had a profound impact on you and has changed the way you look at your life and the practical aspects to it?
Now, I am talking about one of those self-help books which most people would choose to ignore, deeming it to be exhaustively dull. If you are one of those people, I urge you to continue reading. Until recently, I was disinterested in books that lent straightforward practical advice. I preferred to experience things and learn out of experience, and I still do. But, The Decision Book has enabled me to examine myself from a whole new perspective!
The book consists of four sections, under which there are varied number of strategic models that help us analyze and address various issues faced by us. These issues are in essence questions that are asked by all of us in our daily lives.
For example, you may ask yourself, ‘Is this project worth an investment?’ or ‘What makes me happy?’ For these questions, various models will help you practically analyze the question and you will be left to decide the next step. What makes these models efficient is that these have been developed through research and used before in time. There is a reason why a book becomes an international bestseller.
One must remember, however, that flipping through the pages like you do for a novel does not do justice to the true potential of this book. You must sit down and work out the models on a sheet of paper, delve into your mind to put down the elements required for a particular model, and then examine the final structure.
