Tuesday, November 08, 2022 | 6:30 p.m.

$0 | Friedman Family Auditorium

Amidst the chaotic information overload of a presidential campaign in a twenty-four hour news cycle, how can a voter choose a candidate who will actually make a good president? In his new book, Picking Presidents, celebrated Harvard political scientist Gautam Mukunda proposes an objective, tested, and non-partisan method to assess whether candidates will succeed or fail if they win the White House. He combines the best thinking in political science, psychology, organizational behavior, and economics to analyze when we as voters have gotten it right and where we’ve gone painfully wrong.

Join Mukunda in conversation with New York Times columnist Tom Friedman about how to make this most consequential decision in the world.

Picking Presidents will be available for sale and signing.
