We all face hard decisions every day and the choices we make, and how others perceive them, can be life-changing. There are countless books on how to make those tough calls, but How Women Decide is the first to examine a much overlooked truth: men and women approach decisions differently, and often in surprising ways. Stress? It makes women more focused. Confidence? Caution can lead to stronger decisions. And despite popular misconceptions, women are just as decisive as men-though they may pay for it. Pulling from the latest science on decision-making, as well as lively stories of real women and their experiences, cognitive scientist Therese Huston teaches us how we can best shape our habits, perceptions, and strategies, not just to make the most of our own opportunities, but to reshape the culture and bring out the best decisions-regardless of who's making them.

"Susan Boyce's spot-on performance conveys the intellectual confidence needed for this enlightening book on decision making and gender. Her flawless phrasing and nuanced tone palette promote respect for the author's scholarship and suggestions. Decision making by women is often judged harshly and misunderstood. The author says this is mainly due to lingering gender stereotypes about females' capacity for empathy, decisiveness, commitment, and memory. Providing a cultural overview of these stereotypes that rings true, the author details the types of decision-making errors that we are all prone to make and offers intuitive suggestions for women in particular on how to avoid them. Her writing style, along with the narrator's command of the author's sensibilities, allows listeners to view these dynamics with perspective and step up their decision-making skills. T.W.
