There is a book with that title. Other good related resources are the links here, and (more general) here. Also, maybe at this course home page.

Originally from Joel Spolsky’s article about the Shutdown menu, to a Slashdot article, and then these links:
Sheena Iyengar studies choice. This paper was suggested (by the poster) as a good place to start. Barry Schwartz has done some work too, and also written articles like this. A short article is here.
Update: There is a video here.
Some people (sensibly) disagree.

(BTW, Joel has also written about it before. And later?)
