About the Author

Sandra Schneider (Ph.D., University of Wisconsin-Madison) is Professor of Psychology and former Associate Vice President for Research at the University of South Florida. She has also held positions at the National Science Foundation, serving most recently as Division Director within the Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences Directorate. Dr. Schneider's research focuses on cognitive and motivational processes in decision making, with an emphasis on reference dependence, goal setting, and risk taking. She has published multiple theoretical and research articles, and is co-editor of the 2003 Cambridge University Press volume, Emerging Perspectives in Decision Research.

Jonathan Baron is Professor of Psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. Baron's research is based on the utilitarian idea that society should be organized to do the most good (or to maximize utility). Some of his research examines people's intuitive principles for decision-making and moral judgement, and explores how these principles can stand in the way of doing the most good. Baron is the author of Rationality and Intelligence (1985); Thinking and Deciding (1988, 1994, 2000), a widely used textbook for advanced undergraduates and beyond; Morality and Rational Choice (1993), Judgement Misguided: Intuition and Error in Public Decision Making (1998); and Against Bioethics (2006). He has also co-edited three books and published over 175 papers and chapters. He is the editor of the journal Judgement and Decision Making, and he is currently president of the Society for Judgement and Decision Making. He holds a BA from Harvard and a PhD from Michigan and is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and of the American Psychological Society.

Format: Paperback
In my opinion, this book is an excellent synthesis of the state of the art in judgement and decision making (for short: JDM) research. It shows what has been achieved so far and it indicates key topics of future research. I won't attempt to review the entire book (see e. g. Nickerson in: Journal of Mathematical Psychology, Vol. 48, 2004, p. 199-210), but I will try to give an idea of why this book can be a valuable source for people not belonging to the community of JDM researchers.

JDM research has been a very active field for decades, leading to a bulk of publications. The present book seems to be singular, because the authors of the different articles do not only summarise the work they have done so far, but they also try to reveal very basic concepts and limitations of their various research programs. This kind of information tends to get lost in everyday research and publications related to it, but such inforamtion is indispensible for a precise and comprehensive overview and for evaluating what has been achieved so far. Just to give an example: Human JDM capabilities can be seen as a powerful resource for coping with particular tasks or it can be considered to be a source of biases and pitfalls, which impede people's mastering of such tasks. Most reaerchers can be assigned to one of these two curreents. What is still missing is a comprehensive model which reveals which factors and factor combinations determine whether a decision is "good" or "bad", "biased" or "rational". Such models should not only apply to the artificial tasks used in laboratory studies preferred by many JDM researchers, they should also help understand people's coping with real-life JDM tasks.
