The hardest choices are also the most consequential. So why do we know so little about how to get them right?
_x000D_ Big, life-altering decisions matter so much more _x000D_ than the decisions we make every day, and they're also the most _x000D_ difficult: where to live, whom to marry, what to believe, whether to _x000D_ start a company, how to end a war. There's no one-size-fits-all approach_x000D_ for addressing these kinds of conundrums.

In Farsighted, he uncovers powerful tools for honing _x000D_ the important skill of complex decision-making. While you can't model a _x000D_ once-in-a-lifetime choice, you can model the deliberative tactics of _x000D_ expert decision-makers.
