Libations and Deliberations: Sheena Iyengar on The Art of Choosing

It's time once again for Libations and Deliberations!  Join us at Not Your Average Joe's in Medford to discuss Sheena Iyengar's book and TED talk, The Art of Choosing. Iyengar makes the case that attitudes towards the availability of choice are very much cultural and vary throughout different parts of the world, and that having choices isn't always everything it's cracked up to be

The TED talk is about 18 minutes in length, plus a 5 minute personal segment after her conclusion which you shouldn't miss. You can watch it here.

For those of you who are new to Food for Thought, L&D is an ongoing series of discussions on short online talks (TED, The RSA, etc.) on topical subjects of interest, over food and drinks in a comfortable "round table" setting (or square, as the case may be).

Not Your Average Joe's is located in the Station Landing complex in Medford, at Routes 16 and 28.  There is parking in the lot and underground garage, and the complex is directly connected to a walkway from the Orange Line Wellington stop.

Hope to see you there :)

    The discussion was interesting with many new thoughts and ideas. There were no shows, which actually I thought worked to the advantage of the discussion. A smaller group made for more intimate discussions.

    What a great talk by Sheena Iyengar. In the end, I think she persuasively argues that whatever the ultimate difference or sameness in making a choice, choice DOES matter.
