Drummond (decision sciences, U. of Liverpool) explores how and why decisions go awry, avoiding probability statistics, mathematical models, spreadsheets, and techniques of risk analysis. Rather her theme is uncertainty, and her argument that almost all decisions are a gamble. The trick, she says, is not so much knowing all the available facts, but attributing the right significance to them.
