Also check out the newest from Dan and Chip Heath, "Decisive" it hits the shelves on March 31st but you can find excerpts on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Decisive-Make-Better-Choices-Life/dp/0307956393. In the book they outline an effective model for decision making: WRAP: Widen your options, Reality check your assumptions, Attain distance, and Prepare to be wrong. As with all their books, the Heath brothers lay out stories to illustrate how to employ their strategies as well as compelling examples from business and evidence from science. Great book.
