Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness

From the winner of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Economics, Richard H. Thaler, and Cass R. Sunstein: a revelatory look at how we make decisions—for fans of Malcolm Gladwell’s Blink and Daniel Kahneman’s Thinking Fast and Slow New York Times bestseller Named a Best Book of the Year by The Economist and the Financial Times Every day we make choices—about what to buy or eat, about financial investments or our children’s health and education, even about the causes we champion or the planet itself. Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. Nudge is about how we make these choices and how we can make better ones. Using dozens of eye-opening examples and drawing on decades of behavioral science research, Nobel Prize winner Richard H. Thaler and Harvard Law School professor Cass R. Sunstein show that no choice is ever presented to us in a neutral way, and that we are all susceptible to biases that can lead us to make bad decisions. But by knowing how people think, we can use sensible “choice architecture” to nudge people toward the best decisions for ourselves, our families, and our society, without restricting our freedom of choice.

Do you want to build your own website but don't know where to start? Have you been put off by all the jargon and gobbledygook of other Internet guides? If so then this plain, easy WordPress tutorial is the ideal place to start. Now a #1 Amazon Best Seller on Kindle Books, this popular, up-to-date, step-by-step guide by expert Sarah McHarry will walk you through the essential first steps to building your own website or blog using WordPress. In eight easy lessons you will have your own website up and running - without needing to know any geeky computer code! And, in the remaining 12 lessons, you'll learn all you need to know about creating a website and making it into your own, unique, web presence. What you'll learn in this book: How to register your own domain and get the right WordPress hosting How to install WordPress with a few clicks of the mouse How to design a professional-looking website How to add and format your content How to use graphics and images All about themes, plugins, widgets and other WordPress tools ... and lots more.. If you want to make a website that looks like it was designed by a pro then WordPress is the ideal tool to use. Designing a website need not be difficult or expensive if you have the right guidance. Sarah's WordPress tutorial walks you through creating a website yourself using step-by-step lessons that are easy to follow. Making a website as a beginner has never been easier! Why should you build your own website on your own domain instead of using a free service? The answer is that, with your own privately registered domain and hosting account, YOU own and control the website, not anybody else. You can put whatever you like on your site and no-one can tell you otherwise. You can make your site look and behave how you like. You're the boss. And, with your own website, you can build your own distinctive 'brand', whether you are a business or a community group, an individual, or whatever... Your domain becomes your own exclusive web address, your own piece of online virtual 'real estate' that plays its part in publicizing your mission or message. Creating a website on your own domain gives you identity, visibility and, indeed, status. But don't you need a professional web designer to make a good job building a website? No, definitely not! This was the case in the early days of the Internet because only a few tech-savvy geeks knew and understood the computer language (HTML) required. But as the technology has advanced, so have the tools to build websites become more accessible. WordPress is one of these tools and WordPress is the subject of this e-book. But how much does it cost to make a website? The answer is just a few bucks per month for hosting. If you create your own website using WordPress, you don't have to spend another cent. And what if you're looking to start a blog? Well, the same instructions apply. WordPress was originally designed as a blogging platform and this ebook shows you just how to build a blog using the same techniques as designing a website. Whether you want to create a simple WordPress blog or design a full-blown ecommerce site, Sarah's 'WordPress To Go' will start you off on the right foot.

The primary goal of this book is to take anyone, even an absolute beginner, from zero to WordPress "guru" in a few short hours. I'll hold your hand, step-by-step, all the way. You get to watch over my shoulder as we explore the WordPress Dashboard. Inside this book, veteran WordPress expert Andy Williams will start at the very beginning. You'll learn: The two different versions of WordPress. Website hosting and domain registrars. How to set this up with separate registrar and host, for more security. How to install WordPress. An overview of the Dashboard including how to find hidden items. Cleaning out the stuff that is installed by default. Finding and installing WordPress themes to instantly change the look and feel of your website. Plugins. What they are and how you can use them to create magnificent websites. How to update WordPress, themes and plugins. Every single Dashboard setting, what they do, and what you should use in the settings of your website. How to find and use the RSS feeds on your site to help search engines find your content. The importance of user profiles, and how to assign a "Gravatar" image to your email address. How to create great navigation systems on your site, with custom menus, internal linking and related post sections. Enabling and dealing with visitor comments. Using the media library for images, video and more. The difference between pages and posts, and a simple way to know which one you should be using for each bit of content you publish on your website. Effective use of categories and tags. Using these incorrectly can get your site penalized or even banned from search engines. How to write posts, and even schedule them so they will be published at some future date. Using post revisions. Two different types of homepage. A blog style page v a more traditional "static" homepage. Using widgets on your site to add neat features. I'll take you through several essential plugins, including plugins that can: Automatically backup your site and send backups to the cloud, or your email address. Automatically create important legal pages like terms and privacy policy. Create a Contact Page so your visitors can contact you. Setup good SEO practices. Setup social sharing buttons on your site, so visitors can easily tell their friends about your great web pages. Most people learn better when they can actually see what they are reading about, so one thing this book isn't, is shy about screenshots. There are over 250 of them, showing you exactly what you will see on your screen, and prompting you to take specific actions as you learn and master WordPress. You may have heard that WordPress has a steep learning curve. With this book, you won't even notice it. Each chapter ends with a "Tasks to Complete" section.
