11 Responses to Option A7 people chose B as their 2nd choice, 7 people chose C as their 3rd choice
1
I liked the visual look of them best.
2
This sounds like a very interesting book.
3
I chose A and B first because the subtitles are succinct. I chose C last because the subtitle made more sense than in D.
4
i like a and c best as they look like there are 2 roads aka choices you can take. the other options look spiritual in nature.
5
This order is best.
6
The reason for my choices was based off of the short description on the book cover. I felt A convey the message of "Decide" better.
7
I really like the way the arrows are on my choice A. C is okay. D is not that great. And the one I didn't choose I don't care for at all. I just think A is the most visually appealing.
8
These were my choices, I liked how the arrows went.
9
I prefer the graphics more simple on these designs
10
i picked base on the tag line. the arrow images were more confusing than anything...the title was meh...but the tag lines(subtitles) we good.
11
The wording of Choice A is simple and clear, and speaks to everyone at every stage of life. This title also suggests empowerment - "Its usually yours". Choice B is similarly straightforward. Both Choices A and B will resonate with readers. Choice C may appeal more to those who feel pressured.

1
I like the arrow symbols with more of them the most.
2
the shorter more direct subtitles give a better idea in less time and allows you to sell and grab someones attention quicker
3
the lines look more interesting
4
I think the more directions, the better to convey the point
5
I think that there should be more than 2 ends on the arrows. Makes it look like the decision is more difficult.
6
I like how concise and clear B and A are. I also prefer the choice symbols in those. I think C is better than D only because the little blurb is easier to understand.
7
I think it shows the complexity of making a choice
8
I really like the tagline of B the best. I think its empowering. A was my next favorite one. Lastly C I liked the least.
9
I think the cross shape was too generic.
10
I like the graphics that show more than one path because I think that illustrates decisions better, but I actually like the tagline in A the best.
11
I like the the messages above the author's name of Option B the best, D the second and then C.
12
I prefer the images with more arrows. Many decisions are not either/or, they're more like choosing door A,B, or C. The images with more arrows implies that book will help with more than just this or that decisions
13
The books with the line design I picked show that decisions have multiple factors.
14
My 1st choice has the lines going in all directions. This goes quite well with the title because it looks confusing and a decision needs to be made. My 2nd and 3rd choice have to do with the lines as well. The crossroad lines as my 2nd choice is also good but neater and cleaner lines than my first choice. I like the messier look of the 1st choice with the word "decide".
15
These pictures make me think the most about decisions.
16
I like the way the arrows are pointing in option B it grabs my attention to want to know more. Option D has the same effect as B and C was chosen as last because it did not grab me visually as the other two options.
17
I like this order best
18
I liked the ones that looked like the had answers to be found
19
B is the most obvious as it is clear through just the illustration, what the book is about. D is similar but not as ideal. C is just the best of the two remaining.
5 Responses to Option C4 people chose D as their 2nd choice, 2 people chose A as their 3rd choice
1
MY CHOICES WERE ALL ABOUT THE SAYINGS AND NOT THE DRAWING OF THE ARROWS. THE TOP TWO WERE SELECTED BECAUSE THEY HAD BETTER SLOGANS AS PART OF THE TITLE.
2
I don't like the options that use the term "usually" because it's not very persuasive and doesn't make a very strong argument. I feel like it's important for the writer to have a stronger opinion on the subject they're writing about if they want to get other people interested. I also think D is a little arrogant and rude, and the wording would probably keep me from wanting to buy the book. C is the most supportive and confident, so it's the one I would be most likely to actually buy.
3
I like all of them.
4
I like clear your mind
5
I went based off the words first and then the images. I liked the wording of C the best but the picture of B the best. Words being more important I went with C. As for D, D seems kinda of gimmick-y but i liked the picture better than A
15 Responses to Option D10 people chose B as their 2nd choice, 8 people chose A as their 3rd choice
1
Everything beside the first choice looks stupid because it's not symmetric
2
i went by visual appeal of the covers.
3
best selection to display
4
I like the more pathways for D and B, I like the more vertical option for C
5
I liked the picture with 4 points because it shows drastically different outcomes. The other covers shows 3 or fewer choices which didn't seem to match what the topic of the book is about.
6
Decisions can lead to multiple outcomes. I ranked the covers based on appeal and that virtue.
7
D C B IS GOOD
8
The first choice for me is the best because the 4 way arrows represent the different directions your decisions can go.
9
It feels most multi-directional
10
I like the designs of the arrows best on the three I chose. I like the title referring to "clearing your mind" -- makes me think it will be a mindfulness exercise.
11
I like Option D best, especially the statement on the front and the arrow directions can out in all direction, not just two or three, like the other options.
12
Image D is my first choice because it correlates better with how one navigates in general... North, South, East and West. Image B is very different and draws the eye, as if almost to say that you can go left or right but one never sees backwards as an option. I choose option A finally because there is more symmetry in the arrows as opposed to the last one.
13
I liked the options with more arrows better because I think it implies that decisions are not always easy and there is way more than two options in most cases. Then, I just chose the ones that were most aesthetically pleasing.
14
I like the one I chose because it looks like I have more options.
15
More arrowheads would indicate more choices.
