Now, Nudge coauthor Cass Sunstein and leading decision-making scholar Reid Hastie shed light on the specifics of why and how group decisions go wrong--and offer tactics and lessons to help leaders avoid the pitfalls and reach better outcomes"--Dust jacket flap.

Well, since President Obama's relatively inane and rambling talk on gun control with CNN's former CIA intern, Anderson Cooper [and member of the Vanderbilt family], I can think of a perfect example of groupthink: when the president constantly mentions some type of martial law conspiracy. [Although unfamiliar with that conspircy I do know that the president signed National Defense Authorization Act , granting the US military the right to arrest any American citizen - - yet he kept mentioning conspiracy of some sort?]
