Format: Hardcover
This well written book presents a comprehensive and unbiased review of decision making concepts. It contrasts methods that select decisions on the basis of the anticipated consequences and rule based methods. It covers the topic of ambiguity quite well. However, I wished it covered more extensively decision making under risk. It is written at a high level and is somewhat difficult to read. However, it provides excellent insights in the decision making process.

I wish I had read this book when I was younger. This is wonderful review of basic decision making principles. It's a little bit dry but overall is very readable.
