Human beings often make errors when confronted a complex system. Dorner uses the results of decision-making experiments with computer simulations to describe the types of errors that people often make. Conclusions are interesting, but presentation is a bit dull and academic. There are more interesting books on this topic, like Perrow's "Normal Accidents", Tenner's "Why Things Bite Back" and Weinberg's "Introduction to General Systems Thinking".
