The Paradox of Choice: Why More is Less - Details:
Americans deeply value their freedom of choice, and we just assume that the more choice we have, the better off we are. But recent research presents a different scenario.

"Too much choice" is further exacerbated when we seek the "best" in every decision. Explore the evidence that shows how choice-overload can be both overwhelming and debilitating, and how we can find solutions to help mitigate its ill-effects.
