This book truly is the cornerstone of professional decision engineering. It lays the theoretical underpinnings in a clear, common sense way. The book is a balance of academic rigor and decision engineering practice. This book articulates an engineering approach to decision making that has developed over the last 50 years at Stanford University and in nearby consulting companies.
