Raiffa takes the reader into the meat of things without drowning the reader in a jungle of stochastic equations and calculus to scare away all but the hardiest of math majors. Always to the point and using excellent real life examples, this book continues to be a ready reference and guide year in and out. His examples to show that we do have instincts that can be quantified - like the ratio of scotch to bourbon drinkers among physicians - are immediately apparent and draw the reader in.
A classic in the understanding of decision trees and probability analysis and recommend this book without hesitation.
A special note if you are enrolled in API-302 at Harvard: (1) congratulations on joining the club and (2) read this book before the first problem set.
