    One thought on “The Tyranny of Choice”

    1. نیمه اول کتاب که به فرآیند ایدئولوژیک شدن مصرف در جوامع پساصنعتی و مثالها و تحلیل هایش می پردازد، نیمه جذاب تر و قابل تامل کتاب است. تعریف ایدئولوژیک شدن مصرف و تعمیمش به فضای تصمیم گیری های مدرن، استرس های ناشی از فرآیند انتخاب بی شمار و ارتباطش با الگوها و آرمانهای جامعه سرم [...]

    2. This was a thought-provoking book about a topic I am sure many of us have struggled with: in the economically and socially liberated West, what happens to the human psyche when it has 'too much control'? Are we ultimately happier without constraints, or are we healthier when we inhabit a society with a consensus of limits?Beyond that powerful kernel of an idea, though, this book fell frustratingly short of the expectations set by the well-written and imaginative introduction. The text suffered f [...]

    3. A very smart book--deceptively short and fast as a read; actually deep and wide-ranging. An addition to the rapidly growing shelf of books on how to read and protect yourself against the insidiousness of late capitalism. Lots of entertaining and eye-opening factoids, too.

TIRANIJA IZBORA, RENATA SALECLU ovoj knjizi autorica objašnjava zašto danas kod ljudi dolazi do sve češćih napadaja anksioznosti, panike i osjećaja manje vrijednosti tvrdeći da je tomu uzrok velika mogućnost izbora, koji zbog svoje širine, ljudima zapravo samo predstavlja teret. Ljudi su, da bi ublažili vlastitu tjeskobu, pristali slijediti upute knjiga za samopomoć koje im konstantno nameću “vlastiti izbor” i pravila ponašanja za sve i svašta, koja živeći danas ubrzanim ritm [...]

    5. "When there are so many options to choose from, when choice becomes so overbearing, and when the responsibility for making the wrong choice appears so anxiety-provoking, foundering in indecisiveness seems to offer protection from the possible regret and disappointment that choice might provoke." This sentence both sums up the central tenet of this book and highlights the clumsy and awkward drafting and editing.The title of the book suggests an insight to an important topic.Unfortunately the book [...]

    6. So glad I stumbled onto this mini-book about our freedoms to make real choices. Part sociology, psychology and philosophy, it really made me think about our daily decisions. Read it!
