"Yes, it's time to decide which management book to read next. To help you decide, I have read Luda Kopeikina's The Right Decision Every Time and now I can muster better emotional resources, overcome procrastination, clearly set objectives, apply reason, establish context, and de-layer complexity. I can now clearly recommend that THIS be the next management book that you read. Kopeikina offers many insights into how to make the best decisions, but the ones I appreciate most reveal how to free your mind and body from their–yikes–'death habits.' Kopeikina also recommends clarity of communication as a test of decisions, and she shows us how on every page of her fine book."

--Dr. Robert M. Metcalfe, MIT engineer, Ethernet inventor, 3Com founder, InfoWorld pundit, and now Polaris Ventures partner; Recipient in 2005 of the National Medal of Technology–the nation's highest award for technological innovation

"The Right Decision Every Time offers sound and practical advice for resolving complex decision situations. By considering any decision in a clear state of mind, we find fundamental barriers, test core assumptions, and align with the right choice. Ideas presented in this book can make a profound difference in any manager's effectiveness."

--C. Michael Armstrong, Retired Chairman, Comcast–AT&T–Hughes

"In her book, The Right Decision Every Time, Luda Kopeikina provides a unique and enlightening look into the process of decision making utilizing a Clarity State–a state of emotional, mental, and physical balance. This book is a 'must-read' for any manager or entrepreneur that strives to be the most effective leader they can be."

--Marshall Carter, Retired Chairman and CEO, State Street Bank and Trust

"Effective leaders communicate clear strategies. To communicate strategy clearly, they must be clear themselves. The Right Decision Every Time presents simple but powerful techniques that even mature leaders have repeatedly shown they can add to their arsenal, helping them excel in leadership. The Clarity State integrates many difficult techniques in a very practical, proven process. Everyone who aspires to successfully lead their organizations, large or small, private or public, should learn the process Luda presents in this book."
