Author to discuss decision-making

Jonah Lehrer will discuss his new book ”How We Decide,” in which he takes a fascinating look at the new science of decision-making – and how it can help us make better choices, at 6 p.m. Feb. 16 at the Book Works.

After Lehrer’s presentation, there will be time for questions and a book signing. The event is free to the public. Lehrer is a delight to read. A fascinating book!” Publisher’s Weekly wrote.

He has written for The New Yorker, Nature, Wired, The Washington Post and The Boston Globe. He is also a contributing editor at Scientific American Mind and National Public Radio’s Radio Lab.
