- provides a glimpse at the many approaches that have been taken
in the study of judgment and decision making, including bounded
rationality, computational modelling, and the heuristics and biases
- portrays the major findings in the field and covers topics such
as probablistic reasoning, hypothesis testing, multiattribute
choice, and decision making under risk and uncertainty
- presents examinations of the broader roles of social,
emotional, and cultural influences on decision making
explores applications of judgment and decision-making research to important problems in a variety of professional contexts, including finance, accounting, medicine, public policy, and the law.
"....Exactly what a good handbook should be; comprehensive,
representative, authoritative, authentic and well-written"
Kenneth R. Hammond, University of Colorado at Boulder
"This spelendid collection by Koehler and Harvey is a timely
state-of-the-art report on Judgment and Decision Making (JDM) and
provides a good demonstration of the great strides that have been
made in thie area over the past 50 or so years. In short, for
anyone who wants to know exactly where JDM research is currently
at, this book is essential reading."
Applied Cognitive Psychology
"The Handbook shows the realization of Ward Edwards's
original dream of a field made exciting by the continual interplay
between normative analyses, descriptive research, and prescriptive
interventions, bridging critical gaps between the normative ideal
and descriptive reality."
Baruch Fischhoff, Carnegie Mellon University and President of Society for Risk Analysis
"Fifty years of research have created an impressive body of
knowledge and theory about human judgment and decision making. This
comprehensive and authoritative handbook will serve as a valuable
text and reference for students, scholars, and decision
Paul Slovic, University of Oregon and President of Decision Research Institute
“Judgment and decision making is hot, and a handbook comes
at just the right time. What I like so much about this book is that
so many of the chapters are written by young scholars with fresh
perspectives and new ideas. This Handbook is a great place
for graduate students to find out where the frontiers of the field
are now, and who are the researchers that are making the field so
Richard H. Thaler, University of Chicago
"This is the first book to give a complete overview of this
field, which has been developing since the 1950s. The first part
details normative approaches and includes discussions of bounded
rationality and computational models of decision making. The next
two parts focus respectively on judgements and decisions while the
last part examines practical applications. Topics range over
hypothesis testing, the challenges of uncertainty and complexity,
the role of feelings in decision making, the influence of culture
and even the psychology of medical decision making."
