GEL 2005 - Barry Schwartz
|Barry Schwartz, author of the recently published The Paradox of Choice, spoke on the contents of his book. (I had picked up the book and attempted to finish it before the conference but was not successful. It is still in a pile of four books in progress that I need to finish.)|

My head was still spinning however with the insights (and implications thereof) that Barry made.
Mark Hurst published a good interview with Barry before the conference here.
If you have not read the book yet, Barry's key point is:
I highly recommending reading the whole book!
