Summary
Provides a rebuttal to the gurus of "go with your gut." Shows that decisions of all kinds, whether "snap" or long-term strategic, benefit from being made at the last possible moment. The art of knowing how long you can afford to delay before committing is at the heart of many a great decision--whether in a corporate takeover or a marriage proposal. Exploring decisions from those made in half a second to those that take months and years, Partnoy demonstrates that procrastination is often a virtue, that the ability to wait is the path to happiness, and that our gut instincts often betray us
