Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In an unabridged republication of the 1991 edition published by Academic Press Limited, London, statisticians at the Los Alamos National Laboratory provide lay readers a guide on expert judgement, reprinted now because of new applications in creating knowledge systems and in combination with the methodology PREDICT (Performance and Reliability Evaluation from Diverse Information, Combination, and Tracking). They describe a shortcut to creating knowledge systems, which they describe as electronic repositories for capturing, accessing, and updating expertise. Annotation c.
