The so-called dismal science has merged with psychology and neurology to study why people make all types of economic decisions. Systems biologist and economist David Orrell documents the current state of this research in this well-written audiobook. Narrator Al Kessel's vocal style is lyrical and enjoyable to hear, even when his melodic pitch patterns fluctuate in ways that don't quite fit the structure of a sentence. But the author's fascinating research and insights are coherent nonetheless as he describes how personal choices are influenced by various factors. By the end of this behavioral science audio, listeners will understand how their decisions and attitudes can be influenced by factors like the way a message is worded or by their own need to belong, avoid loss, minimize effort, or satisfy an obligation.
