Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This book addresses the issue of how to structure a complex situatioin, identify its criteria and other factors whether intangible or concrete, measure the interactions among them in a simple way, and synthesize all the information to obtain priorities. The priorities can then be used in a fenefit/cost setting to develop portfolios of activities, one of the major concerns of organizations today.

About the Author

Thomas L. Saaty is a Distinguished University Professor at the University of Pittsburgh, where he teaches at the Pitt Graduate School of Business. He is best-known as being the modern mathematician who figured out a way to measure intangibles, and is the inventor, architect, and primary theoretician of the Analytic Hierarchy Process, a decision-making framework used for large-scale, multiparty, multi-criteria decision analysis, and of the Analytic Network Process, its generalization to decisions with dependence and feedback. Saaty is a member of National Academy of Engineering (2005), and in 2008 he received the Impact Prize from the Operations Research Society INFORMS for how the AHP has revolutionized the way we resolve complex decision problems. The publication of his books on the Analytic Hierarchy Process and the release of PC-based software such as SuperDecisions and web-based collaborative software such as Decision Lens have led to widespread dissemination of the process. The AHP has been applied worldwide to help decision makers in every conceivable decision context across both the public and private sectors, with literally thousands of reported applications.

More About the Author

Thomas L. Saaty is the creator of the Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), a theory for how to establish measures for intangibles most often used in decision making. It has been generalized to the Analytic Network Process (ANP) for decision making with feedback and dependence in networks. The AHP/ANP is particularly useful in group decision making and for handling large-scale multi-criteria decision problems common in business, industry, and government. He holds the chair of Distinguished University Professor at the Pitt Graduate School of Business of the University of Pittsburgh.

In 2008 the Institute of Operations Research and Management Science (INFORMS)recognized him with its Impact Award: "The AHP has revolutionized how we resolve complex decision problems." In 2007 he was awarded the Akao Prize from the International Society of Quality Function Deployment. In 2005 he was elected to the National Academy of Engineering: "For the development and generalization of the analytic hierarchy process and the analytic network process in multicriteria decision-making." The International Society of the Analytic Hierarchy Process (ISAHP.org) was established in 1988 and meets every two years.

Format: Paperback
The content is definitely designed for managers and decision makers. The beginning chapters deal heavily with overall situation in which the reader must make a decision together with its consequences. The way the subjet is presented is excellent. Everyone knows that complex unstructured problems are hard to handle, but the approach this book takes makes it much easier to swallow. The fact that it uses simple arithmetic is also a beautiful plus. I have burrowed several of its case studies to use in real life financial decisions

I believe this is a very good book to teach this subject from ground up. However, readers not so much experienced with computers get the wrong impression that one can't solve an AHP model without Expert Choice software, which is wrong! If you have adequate hands-on experience with Microsoft Excel, you will see that it is more than enough to tackle even rather tough models like my colleagues and I did in the case of a model consisting of 8 criteria and 39 subcriteria. The good thing is that the book uses simple arithmetic throughout!

Like too many Kindle books, this one has tables that just cannot be read on my Kindle. They are more readable on my PC, but just barely. A major disadvantage of the Kindle for someone interested in technical books.

This is a good book for teaching at the college level. It gives a light brush with the theory and shows how it can really be used to make actual decisions. Students like it.
