History's Greatest Decisionsidentifies and profiles the many important and difficult decisions leaders have made through history which shaped the world as we know it today.

One of the defining features of being human is our capacity for complex problem solving. Most of the time we deal with mundane concerns, like what to have for breakfast or which pair of shoes to wear, but occasionally people face decisions about rather weightier matters.History's Greatest Decisionsis concerned with this second category, those important and difficult decisions which only a very few people get to make and which canimpact on the lives of millionsof others and have the potential to change the world.

From our unknown ancestors whomade the first stone tools, to those people in Northern Ireland who managed to put aside their differences in order to create a better future for their children; from the most powerful man in the world deciding not to start anuclear war, to a woman on a busstanding up for her rightsrefusing to move seats.History's Greatest Decisionslooks at well-known and not-so-well-known examples of people who made the crucial decisions and got them right.
