The paradox of choice : why more is less by Barry Schwartz( Book )

76 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in 14 languages and held by 2,531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether buying a pair of jeans or applying to college, everyday decisions, big and small, have become increasingly complex due to the abundance of choice with which we are presented. As Americans, we assume that more choice means better options and greater satisfaction--but choice overload can make you question your decisions before you even make them, it can set you up for unrealistically high expectations, and it can make you blame yourself for failures. This can lead to decision-making paralysis, anxiety, and stress. In this book, social scientist Schwartz explains at what point choice--the hallmark of individual freedom that we so cherish--becomes detrimental to our psychological and emotional well-being. He offers practical steps on how to limit choices to a manageable number, focus on those that are important and ignore the rest, and derive greater satisfaction from the choices you have to make

In his book The Paradox of Choice, Barry Schwartz tackles one of the great mysteries of modern life: why is it that societies of great abundance - where individuals are offered more freedom and choice than ever before - are witnessing a near-epidemic of depression? Conventional wisdom tells us that greater choice is for the greater good, but in this TEDTalk Schwartz argues just the opposite as he builds a compelling case that the abundance of choice in Western society is actually making us not freer but more paralyzed, not happier but more dissatisfied

Why we work by Barry Schwartz( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An eye-opening, groundbreaking tour of the purpose of work in our lives, showing how work operates in our culture and how you can find your own path to happiness in the workplace. Why do we work? The question seems so simple. But Professor Barry Schwartz proves that the answer is surprising, complex, and urgent. We've long been taught that the reason we work is primarily for a paycheck. In fact, we've shaped much of the infrastructure of our society to accommodate this belief. Then why are so many people dissatisfied with their work, despite healthy compensation? And why do so many people find immense fulfillment and satisfaction through "menial" jobs? Schwartz explores why so many believe that the goal for working should be to earn money, how we arrived to believe that paying workers more leads to better work, and why this has made our society confused, unhappy, and has established a dangerously misguided system. Through fascinating studies and compelling anecdotes, this book dispels this myth. Schwartz takes us through hospitals and hair salons, auto plants and boardrooms, showing workers in all walks of life, showcasing the trends and patterns that lead to happiness in the workplace. Ultimately, Schwartz proves that the root of what drives us to do good work can rarely be incentivized, and that the cause of bad work is often an attempt to do just that. How did we get to this tangled place? How do we change the way we work? With great insight and wisdom, Schwartz shows us how to take our first steps toward understanding, and empowering us all to find great work

Whether we're buying a pair of jeans, ordering a cup of coffee, selecting a long-distance carrier, applying to college, choosing a doctor, or setting up a 401 (k), everyday decisions - both big and small - have become increasingly complex due to the overwhelming abundance of choice with which we are presented.

This can lead to decision-making paralysis, anxiety, and perpetual stresses ... [This book] explains at what point choice - the hallmark of individual freedom and self-determination that we so cherish - becomes detrimental to our psychological and emotional well-being ...
