PositiveThe New York TimesAs a deep thinker and gifted storyteller, Johnson is the right author to tackle the topic. He’s at his best when analyzing impossibly complex decisions ... What are the habits of people who excel at long-term thinking? One of Johnson’s thought-provoking points is that they read novels, which are ideal exercises in mental time travel and empathy ... After reading Farsighted, am I more aware of all the difficulties of making long-term decisions? Definitely. Do I feel better equipped to make those decisions? I’m not sure ... Johnson left me more convinced than ever of the psychologist Ellen Langer’s advice for making tough choices: \'Don’t make the right decision. Make the decision right.\' Since you’ll never have enough information to make the best choice, all you can do is make the best of the choice you’ve made.
