Reviews

"Emily Balcetis' Clearer, Closer, Better is as entertaining as it is important--a book that teaches you how to see the world, both literally and figuratively, in the service of cultivating a life of happiness, meaning, health, and prosperity. Balcetis writes with such verve that you'll forget you're learning, but along the way you'll discover how titans of business, the arts, sports, and fashion perceive the world to maximize their prospects of success. One of the most important--and engaging--books I've read in a very long time."--Adam Alter, New York Times bestselling author of Irresistible and Drunk Tank Pink

"Clearer, Closer, Better offers an incisive analysis of the many ways we get things wrong--misinterpret, don't look closely enough, see what we want to see, respond to the way things are phrased or positioned instead of the thing itself--as well as a highly applicable road map to getting them right."--Amy Cuddy, bestselling author of Presence "If you're staring down a goal that seems overwhelming, this book will give you a new way of looking at it. A rising star in the field of social psychology, Emily Balcetis gets real about the challenges of applying scientific insights to the messiness of daily life. In Clearer, Closer, Better, she offers sage, practical advice that I've already incorporated into mine."--Elizabeth Dunn, co-author of Happy Money: The Science of Happier Spending
