From the Back Cover

The insights you need to become a better decision-maker
Become a better decision-maker
How to overcome your biases and make better decisions
The tools to become a better decision-maker and a better manager

When faced with a decision, we all believe we’re weighing the facts objectively and making rational, thoughtful decisions. In fact, science tells us that in situations requiring careful judgment, every individual is influenced by his or her own biases to some extent. Drawing on the very latest behavioral decision research, Judgment in Managerial Decision Making, Seventh Edition examines judgment in a variety of managerial contexts and provides important insights that can help you make better managerial decisions.

Widely-recognized by practitioners and academics in fields ranging from behavioral finance to public policy, psychology, and economics, this Seventh Edition of the classic text:

  • Discusses the motivational and emotional influences that effect decision making
  • Delves into the fairness and ethics involved in the decision-making process
  • Integrates numerous hands-on decision exercises and examples that will help readers enhance the quality of their managerial judgment
  • Provides tips and techniques on how to make rational decisions during negotiations
  • Presents seven critical strategies for improving decision making

For psychologists, the book outlines a systematic framework for using psychological findings to improve judgment. For the economist, the book suggests a critique of the clas­sic economic model of decision making. Most of all, however, for every manager or financial decision maker, this book offers a clear path to better decisions.

Everyone who makes decisions should read this book if you are not familiar with the themes (read the table of contents). Despite being a university textbook it is quite readable if you are serious about picking up knowledge of how human decision making is biased in various ways. I especially like that the author is not pandering to bored or lazy undergraduate students. So you certainly do not have to be a student to benefit from the book. This book is also useful if you are a researcher that would like to read up on the field. In addition you get all the relevant references. I own edition 6 and that is totally sufficient and the changes to edition 7 are small. However, if you are a researcher you might want the latest edition for the updated references.

Since the relatively short book covers a lot of ground some people might not like it. A good alternative would be Thinking, Fast and Slow, which covers less material in a larger number of pages. Some might consider that book more readable, but personally I prefer the current books more concise presentation. Still I would recommend that book as a second reading on the subject. I would also read something by Gigerenzer (Adaptive Thinking: Rationality in the Real World (Evolution and Cognition) or Rationality for Mortals: How People Cope with Uncertainty (Evolution and Cognition)), who has a broader view of what is rational behaviour.

These are my recommendations, but note that I am not an expert in the field so there might be better books out there.

This book came recommended by Daniel Kahneman. He is someone that I admire greatly. I have recommended this book many times, but each time I refuse to lend it out. Must have in my library. I can look at this book in the shelf of my library and remember some of the content that is in here and still apply it to my day to days.

For someone interested in negotiation, this is an academic text, but it's relatively easy to read. It has plenty of accessible, practical examples, and it has a lot of information that you can share with others professionally. Compared to other negotiation texts I've read, this is probably my favorite.
