Prospect theory

I received this book from Cambridge University Press for reviewing, but its topic is just too far from my research interests to invest time into reading it. I had it with me during my flight to New York last week but it simply evaded me…  The words and graphs are mostly those of decision analysis but the whole is too remote from my statistical universe. (The front cover of the Copper River Delta, Chugach National Forest, Alaska, is tantalising, of course!) Anyway, if any ‘Og reader [with some credential in prospect theory or decision analysis] was interested in reviewing the book for CHANCE, let her or him contact me by email through bayesianstatistics on Gmail.. (The three books have been claimed!)
