Publisher's Summary

Since the original publication of Nudge more than a decade ago, the title has entered the vocabulary of businesspeople, policy makers, engaged citizens, and consumers everywhere. The book has given rise to more than 200 "nudge units" in governments around the world and countless groups of behavioral scientists in every part of the economy. It has taught us how to use thoughtful "choice architecture" - a concept the authors invented - to help us make better decisions for ourselves, our families, and our society. 

Now, the authors have rewritten the book from cover to cover, making use of their experiences in and out of government over the past dozen years as well as an explosion of new research in numerous academic disciplines. To commit themselves to never undertaking this daunting task again, they are calling this the "final edition". It offers a wealth of new insights, for both its avowed fans and newcomers to the field, about a wide variety of issues that we face in our daily lives - COVID-19, health, personal finance, retirement savings, credit card debt, home mortgages, medical care, organ donation, climate change, and "sludge" (paperwork and other nuisances we don't want and that keep us from getting what we do want) - all while honoring one of the cardinal rules of nudging: make it fun!   

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Nudge for good.

I know nudge for good is the tag line in the book, but it is also what I intend to do with what I have learned. I hope to be a better choice architect to make it easier for everyone who is affected by my decisions. Thank you.

Libertarian Economics?

If the authors has left out their left wing politics on climate change they would have an excellent book; however, in the extended time spent on climate change they abandoned their libertarian view for left wing socialism, big government, taxes and wealth redistribution. Perhaps if had advocated for equal distribution of conservative faculty members and the abolishment of tenure they would have accomplished more than the tax and reward policies that smack of socialism not libertarian beliefs. Skip this book and read “Misbehaving” instead.

This second and “final addition” is recommended…

For all who read it in 2009, it’s a must! For everyone else, but the damn book. It’s been considered as one of the most influential books of the past few decades— written by Nobel Laureates— and has much of the most up to date CREDIBLE arguments in the social and behavioral sciences.

It’s fantastic for the now because the majority of the content has been updated to this very moment— it has great insight into the Pandemic, todays politics, climate crisis and more!

You won’t be disappointed.

Some good thoughts but...

Obviously written by professors. Some one sided only perspectives are clearly from teachers not doers. Still worth a listen.

I have never heard the word salient used so much.

There are some really interesting thoughts in this book. It kinda drags on in some parts. The authors seem to be much more paternal than libertarian. I higly disagreed with their dismissal of the slippery slope argument. Take seat belts as an example. First our cars nudged us, now they definately shove us.
