good read, especially if you get an audio version, will leave you with few useful insights on delaying decision or an action.

If you read nothing else in this book, read Chapter 7 : Don't Panic. The best chapter in the book. It explains the difference between Panicking and Choking. Remembering the difference and reacting to that saved my job. I am forever grateful to the author for this timely information. Read the rest of the book, too!
