Judgment pervades human experience. Do I have a strong enough case to go to
trial? Will the Fed change interest rates? Can I trust this person? This book
examines how people answer such questions. How do people cope with the
complexities of the world economy, the uncertain behavior of friends and
adversaries, or their own changing tastes and personalities? When are people's
judgments prone to bias, and what is responsible for their biases? This book
compiles psychologists' best attempts to answer these important questions.
