Evans' thorough investigation into how we make decisions is an eye-opener. Whether you are a parent, a gambler, a politician or a security guard or just want to improve your risk intelligence, this is a must-read. Stylishly written with fascinating examples, this is a highly enjoyable, rigorously academic book that will seep into your everyday thoughts.

This book is a great balance of academic knowledge, original and authentic thinking supported by research and pertinent surveys. The concept of 'Risk Intelligence' is brought to the reader in a smooth flowing manner with lots of information, references and surprising anecdotes that makes a very useful, interesting and fun read. A must read.
