Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the book reviews:

“This book is well written, broad in scope, current in topics, concise, and includes many citations. To aid readers who might have been overwhelmed by the contents in the previous chapters, the conclusions in the last chapter summarize the author’s messages. These conclusions and recommendations contrast how risk analysis is often practiced today and how it could be practiced to be more credible and useful. I believe this book will be a good source of insight for practitioners and academia.” (Seong Dae Kim, Interfaces, Vol. 44 (6), November-December, 2014)

“This excellent book presents up-to-date material, various portions of which are sure to be of great interest to several distinct audiences. … The book is full of thorough but accessible examples and case studies with extensive references to the literature. … this is an important contribution to the literature in that it bridges the gap from theory to practice, includes many fields of application, and is accessible to a wide audience.” (Charles R. Hadlock, SIAM Review, Vol. 55 (4), 2013)
