Thaler and Sunstein show that by knowing how people think, we can design choice environments that make it easier for people to choose what is best for themselves, their families, and their society. Using colorful examples from the most important aspects of life, the authors demonstrate how thoughtful "choice architecture" can be established to nudge us in beneficial directions without restricting freedom of choice. Nudge offers a unique new take--from neither the left nor the right--on many hot-button issues, for individuals and governments alike.

If anyone isn't in favour of nudging policies, at least sometimes, they've got some justifying to do (or rather rationalizing of the unjustifiable) or they're too clever for everyone else's good. Some aspects of the book are only concerned with American issues, eg., choosing health care plans, but the ideas can be applied anywhere. It even has its own site for new ideas: nudges dot org. The audiobook version was quite awkwardly narrated and was often very slow.

I found this book very interesting. I think I would have followed it better if it was not the audio version. Good insight into how options are presented to us, and how that presentation influences our behavior.
