Thinking in Bets: If You Don’t Have the Truth by Annie 18, Making Smarter Decisions
Annie Duke is a World Series of Poker bracelet winner, the winner of the 2004 Tournament of Champions and the only woman. Now, as an expert speaker and conclusion strategist, she merges her poker expertise with her psychology graduate work at UPenn. She is a founder of I Pick, a nonprofit that creates curricula and tools to enhance critical thinking abilities and decision making for under-served middle schoolers.
Thinking in Bets provides a compelling, and eminently useful, new way to consider the choices of life. Annie Duke has written an important, and frequently humorous, publication which can allow you to understand your own shortcomings–and make smarter decisions as a result. You can bet on it.
A book both practical and entertaining, based as it is on lessons learned making under stress, as Annie Duke and poker played. At heart, it is about how we differentiate luck in decisions, how we could enhance the skill part of their balance and skill,while knowing that luck will play a part.
