Great text, covered the major areas of DM literature and very accessible. Reasonable price
This is a very well-written and well-structured book. It is essential for students who want to know more about the psychology of judgement and decision-making. I will definitely recommend it to my students, although I'm not sure whether I will subscribe it as compulsary material.
Very interesting book for complementing essential course texts
Book is very well written and provides ample clarification on topics. Clear and concise with elaboration on selected topics without "mudding" the content learning.
This book is a very nice introduction to the field of judgment and decision making. I will use the book to give some context on the field for a hands-on experimenting course. The book is particularly well suited for beginning students as the authors, two well known figures of the field, make an effort to explain the major theories in an easy and non-technical way.
A very useful book for new and advanced readers in this area.
The book covers the needs of my course,
Some of the information from this book proves useful in the current course, but will be used more extensively in the revalidated course from 2012 onwards
