The best and most practical overview of the cognitive science of rational judgment and decision-making yet published. - Luke Muehlhauser

An excellent book, by an excellent author, with many great insights into the mind in this book.. This book must be read by any person who takes the psychology of reasoning seriously, and also for anyone who doesn't, for it is incredible all the same.

This is the first of Stanovich's books I've read*. I found that it was heavier reading than some other comparable texts, but gave penetrating insights into the Great Rationality Debate, it's background and the definitions of Meliorist and Panglossian positions.

I used this as a reference for an MBA dissertation, it was the most informative text I came across for this purpose when read amongst Kahneman, Bazerman etc. and really opened the concepts up for me, as well as supporting a greater degree of analysis than was required for my subject.

*I didn't finish the book completely because everything I needed was in the first few Chapters, though the Appendices has an excellent reference table listing the range of heuristics and biases and their protagonists.

I'd expect any self-respecting Psychologist to have this book on their shelf.
