  • About the Edition

    Our futures depend not just on the results of the choices we make, but on how well we handle making these hard choices and the serious scrutiny that comes with them. Huston shows how men and women approach decisions differently, though not necessarily in the ways we have been led to believe. She opens up the conversation about 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.
