Product Details

Praise

“The book actually delivers something stranger and more interesting than the announced thesis: a tour of human biases that end up creating ‘behavioral market failures.’ Too Much Information doesn’t replace that generational certainty with a new one, but it does make it impossible to continue regarding information disclosure as an uncomplicated good.”
 – New York Times Book Review

“An accessible treatise on the need to ensure that information improves citizens’ wellbeing with a narrative [that] is clear and relatable.”
– Kirkus Reviews

“Sunstein writes in clear, accessible language throughout. This balanced and well-informed take illuminates an obscure but significant corner of government policy making.”
–Publishers Weekly

“Classic Cass Sunstein: Keen insights and bracingly clear prose fill every page. The chapter on Facebook alone is a compelling reason to read Too Much Information.”
– Robert H. Frank, H. J. Louis Professor of Management and Professor of Economics, Cornell Johnson Graduate School of Management; author of Under the Influence: Putting Peer Pressure to Work

“Once again Cass Sunstein shows that evaluating policy questions with evidence and rigor not only leads to better governance but can be intellectually exhilarating.”
– Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University; author of Enlightenment Now

“Years at the White House uniquely prepared Cass — a worldrenowned behavioral scientist — to write this important book. His mustread arguments about when governments should and should not require companies to disclose information draw on entertaining anecdotes supported by rigorous research.”
– Katy Milkman, Professor, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania; host of the Choiceology podcast

“Cass Sunstein offers a unique and incredibly valuable perspective on information and how it affects people’s choices, presented in a masterful way.”
– Linda Thunstrom, Assistant Professor, Department of Economics, University of Wyoming

“Sunstein offers an endless supply of thoughtprovoking and accessible examples to highlight the fascinating questions at the heart of information disclosure policy. This book changed how I think about what information to seek out in my own life.”
– Jacob Goldin, Associate Professor of Law, Stanford Law School
