    eBook Why Nudge? PDF/EPUB ß í ahali.co nudge? epub, Why Nudge? eBookI think the most important point in this book is that in many ways we are surrounded by choices that someone has already made for us and that having choices is not always free We can spend so much time protecting ourselves from poor choices that we have no time to do anything else That's not freedomInteresting uestions Fewer answers The writing style is not ideal
