Not Impossible is a true testament to the power of determination. It encourages us to believe that all problems can be solved—and that each of us has the ability to change the world and make “miracles” happen. The author originally set out to perform a simple act of kindness for one person and that quickly turned into a lifelong mission for him. In the process he discovered that he could, indeed, change the world by asking himself two simple questions: “If not now, when?” and “If not me, who?”. The author shares his inspirational stories in this book and shows how we should toss out our old ways of thinking and look at changing the world from a new perspective.

Richard H. Thaler and Cass R. Sunstein

Every day we make choices—about what to buy or eat, about financial investments or our children’s health and education, even about the causes we champion or the planet itself. Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. Nudge is about how we make these choices and how we can make better ones. Using dozens of examples and drawing on decades of behavioral science research, Nobel Prize winner Richard H. Thaler and Harvard Law School professor Cass R. Sunstein show that no choice is ever presented to us in a neutral way, and that we are all susceptible to biases that can lead us to make bad decisions. But by knowing how people think, we can use sensible “choice architecture” to nudge people toward the best decisions for ourselves, our families, and our society, without restricting our freedom of choice.
