Sub-titled How to be decisive and get the business done, this book opens with a quote from surely one of history’s most decisive characters, Julius Caesar. Author Shaw approaches his subject in a methodical fashion, splitting the book into three parts dealing with, respectively, the four ‘c’s of decision making (clarity, conviction, courage and communication), a theoretical look at decision-making, and practical steps. It’s a well laid-out book, but the dense text means that you are unlikely to read it at one sitting. But the advice, including warnings on potential pitfalls, is good. Particularly useful are the examples of decisions you may have to make, and suggestions on how best to go about them.
