5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful, solid starting point for life scientists interested in risk perception, March 13, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Feeling of Risk: New Perspectives on Risk Perception (Earthscan Risk in Society) (Paperback)
Slovic is not only an icon in the field of risk perception, he is also an outstanding writer and scholar. "The Feeling of Risk" is a collection of previously published, well written manuscripts, each of which is valuable both as a reference and as a source of references, as each manuscript is well supported with a litany of references to related research. I would recommend this book to any life scientist who participates in risk communication and risk management.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another first-rate Slovic-edited volume on Risk, July 26, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Feeling of Risk: New Perspectives on Risk Perception (Earthscan Risk in Society) (Paperback)
Like its predecessors, this is, overall, an accessible, thoughtful and thought-provoking collection. I plan to use much of it--along with some of the papers from the PERCEPTION OF RISK-- in a course that has a unit on risk in the environmental context.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent collection and very highly recommended, December 10, 2010
This review is from: The Feeling of Risk: New Perspectives on Risk Perception (Earthscan Risk in Society) (Paperback)
Risk proves as a deterrent to our otherwise impulsive selves. "The Feeling of Risk: New Perspectives on Risk Perception" discusses risk and its place in our world and our psyche. Many authors and thinkers converge and discuss risk as a model for feelings, its impact on culture, its effects on democracy, risk on the world stage, our mental minds in overestimating risks, and how risks are shared throughout the public knowledge and world. Scholarly and insightful, "The Feeling of Risk" is an excellent collection and very highly recommended.
