The Perfect Tulip (A methodology to evaluate options and make better decisions) by Alexander Martinez is a non-fiction self-help book that would appeal most to a diverse audience of young adults and adults who are interested in Dutch culture, the handling of dilemmas, and decision making. Have you ever been faced with a decision-making dilemma and wondered how to make the best decision? People all over the world face decisions like this every day, yet they lack the tool needed to evaluate the choices and make the right decisions. The author shares four Dutch short stories that provide the context to understanding 'the perfect tulip' tool. Are you ready to learn 'the perfect tulip' tool and integrate it into your decision-making to ensure you are making the right decisions for yourself?

As a psychology graduate, the summary of The Perfect Tulip by Alexander Martinez grabbed my attention as soon as I read it. The idea of a tool that could help me make decisions interested me both as a psychology professional and as an individual that has often faced indecision when it has come to making personal decisions. I liked the Dutch stories as not only did they provide great context, but also they were enjoyable to read. I found the author’s process to be both psychologically sound and extremely useful. I especially liked the focus on how there are no right or wrong answers, but instead different ways of seeing the world and one’s own behavior. Overall, this was an extremely useful book that has led to me making changes in how I make decisions in my personal and professional lives!
