Editorial Reviews

Review

In this lucid and beautifully written book Byrne builds a sturdy bridge between the theories of counterfactual thought and inferential reasoning. The integrated treatment that she proposes is a major contribution to both fields.

(Daniel Kahneman, Princeton University, Nobel Laureate in Economic Sciences (2002))

'Knowing what I now know I would still have authorized the President to go to war' -- John Kerry. If you want to understand why such conditionals matter then you should read this book. It brings together an account of rationality and creativity to present a unique and powerful theory of how we think about alternatives to reality.

(Philip N. Johnson-Laird , Stuart Professor of Psychology, Princeton University)
