    1. The primer to heuristics and biases Short and to the point No experimental info Good writing Engaging Step one.You have both a biased experience upon which to draw and a biased memory of that experience.Quotes I take the position that research not anecdote, not plausible belief, not common sense, and not our everyday experience should be the basis for understanding and evaluating our decision making abandon the self attribution process altogether Shut up to yourself about yourself What you say m [...]

    2. This book was actually one of the best I have ever read for a class in my undergraduate, masters, and doctoral studies And it was for a managerial accounting class I would give it five stars, but I thought it got a bit slow towards the end It definitely helped me understand how my own thought processes are flawed and how to make better decisions and judgments As my exam is tomorrow, I thought I would write a review today to help summarize some of my thoughts about why it was so interesting and h [...]

    3. Great book Recommended by a smart friend This book delves into how we make choices duh It does it from a clinical psychology point of view But done right Her statistics both in theory and in practice are what one would wish everyone in clinical work would use When she drops into conjecture, she points it out herself.Valuable ideas from the book 1 what makes a good, rational choice specifically, I liked how a rational choice is one that looks at all the options at hand and then makes the most inf [...]

    4. Ok everyone read this book, at least if you re not already inundated with this same information from all sides Even if you are, every repetition drives it in further, and this one especially is good for wiggling it into your stupid human brain by putting it in terms your stupid human brain can process good.I rather enjoy Dawes opinions and one might call them rants throughout the book That said, here s some nitpicking He has this bit at the end about how certain knowledge precludes ethics I m no [...]

    5. This seems like a very thorough and accessible introduction to the subject I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of it that wasn t simply review for me, but even what was review was presented very well I disagree with some of the stances the authors seem to take though subtly on particular theories within the field Otherwise, though, I quite enjoyed it I m not willing to give it five stars, though, because it s the first intro book in the field that I ve read cover to cover, so since I m not [...]

    6. Excellent book to get insight into decision making Gives a scary picture about how not rational we typically make decisions.Gives some good suggestions about formal processes to structure decisions.Nice connection to DAR in CMMI

    7. A good overview and introduction to the psychology of judgment and decision making Second only to Scott Plous s book on the same topic and considerably accurate than any of Malcolm Gladwell s recent texts on the topic.

    8. Not bad, but very philosophical I had a hard time getting through chapters and understanding the point the author was trying to make.
