The Halo Effect...and the Eight other Business Delusions that Deceive Managers

Phil Rosenzweig

Free Press (NY  2007)

The Halo Effect takes a critical look at many of the key business studies in the 1990s and early 2000s.  Many of them stated that after much research, they had identified the "magic formula" (as I like to call it) for a successful business.  Dr. Rosenzweig debunks those studies by showing that mountains of data and tons of research do not necessarily equal a recipe for success.  Although it is over 10 years old, the lessons, in my humble opinion, still apply.

Jonah Lehrer takes a deep dive,into how  how we make decisions, what’s happening in our heads as we do so, and how we might all become better decision makers.
