Description
Financial Times editor and Undercover Economist author Tim Harford here presents an inspiring new approach to problem-solving. Rather than looking to our leaders to set out a plan of action or a path to success, Harford argues that today's challenges are far too unpredictable and complex for ready-made solutions and expert opinion. Incorporating psychology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, physics, and economics, along with hard-won lessons learned in the field, Harford makes a convincing case for the importance of adaptive trial and error in tackling such issues as climate change, poverty, and financial crises, as well as in fostering creative solutions in our business and personal lives.

"[Harford] offers a very useful guide for people preparing to live in the world as it really is."—NYTimes
