Based on data/research from the real world yet analyzed by academics who obviously do not stay in ivory towers. The authors identify poor outcomes as a means to an end---the end being alternative actions to avoid poor outcomes. A valuable resource---insight and application. Superb! Wish there were more authors who viewed their role as informed advisors rather than op-ed writers, decrying poor outcomes, yet offering no positive interventions/alternatives.
