Reviews

"Deadly Decisions is fully referenced, highly critical, and shockingly revealing. It blows the whistle and warns humanity of future catastrophes that can be prevented by ensuring the efficiency of information handling systems. There is much to learn from this book, and a lot to discuss." -- Book Corner blog and TCM Reviews, March 27, 2009 "Deadly Decisions is an interesting read, and one that works on several levels. You can take it merely as a chronicle explaining the background behind some of the biggest failures of the last 100 years, on a deeper level though it is a book inside out thinking process, and how we selectively choose the data to fit our preferred outcome." -- Blogger News Network, January 14, 2009 "Blending history with issues of critical thinking and technology assessment, Deadly Decisions is a top pick for any college-level collection strong in history, social science, or psychology." -- The Bookwatch, The Midwest Book Review, January 2009
