With his appealing vocal personality, Dan John Miller doesn’t miss any nuance as he delivers this outstanding summary of psychological research on how we think and make choices. Miller’s calm and deliberate narration is enjoyable but also rivets attention and inspires thoughtfulness and curiosity. The author describes 20 common mental shortcuts or heuristic mechanisms that include habits like defaulting to the familiar, relaxing scrutiny when comfortable, and associating scarcity with value. He says if we recognize these habits, we can learn to override them with the slower, more deliberate thinking that much of modern life requires. The discussion will remind many of Malcolm Gladwell’s fascinating books. With Miller’s narrative performance, this is one of the fastest-moving behavioral science audios on the market.
