From the Publisher"Amos Tversky was one of the most important social scientists of the last century.
This extraordinary collection demonstrates his range and brilliance, and in particular his genius for showing how and why human intuitions go wrong. Is there a 'hot hand' in basketball? Is arthritis pain related to the weather? Why do we exaggerate certain risks? Why are some conflicts so hard to resolve? Tversky's answers will surprise you. Indispensable reading, and full of implications, for everyone interested in social science."—Cass R. Sunstein, Law School and Department of PoliticalScience, University of Chicago
