Decision Making | Judgment & Decision Making
New to the Second Edition are:
Latest developments in the field building on Prospect Theory
Current research on Behavioral Theory
Innovative suggestions by research scholars on subjects for new theoretical models
Has been very useful in using for a new module for my course. Will include it as a recommended text on course paperwork.
This book is easy to read and follows a logical sequence. It would be useful for any student that is looking at decision making as part of a leadership module
Provided good overview for graduate students without extensive psychology background. Covered the important topics in the field. Would strongly recommend an Instructor's Manual with PPt, chapter outline, possibly a test bank, etc. to increase likelihood of adoption for primary text.
