From the book reviews:
"Multiple research studies show that litigators are human and, as such, are subject to a whole host of biases and pressures imposed on them by their roles as advocates, client managers and strategists. A thick volume by Randall Kiser called "Beyond Right and Wrong" provides a great review of many of these studies and ... would be an interesting read for many litigators and litigation managers." (Galina Davidoff and Wendy L. Hufford, thelegalintelligencer.com, January, 2015)
"In the book, Mr. Kiser discusses various factors that might contribute to the poor quality of lawyers' decisions. ... it's worth noting that the book is very well-written. Mr. Kiser has all of the statistical data and a command of the math, but has presented the topic in a very readable and entertaining style." (Stephen Cavanagh, Amazon.com, November, 2011)
"A book aimed at lawyers and law students to help them see the problem of bad decision making and learn ways to improve it. ... It should be of interest for professional responsibility as well as trial practice and alternative dispute resolution." (Mary Whisner, Trial Ad (and other) Notes, trialadnotes.blogspot.de, June, 2010)
"... this tome should be near at hand in the office of every lawyer engaged in predicting litigation outcomes.... Anyone with sufficient interest in this subject, particularly attorneys, should buy the book and keep it, if not on their night-stands, at least on their desks." (Negotiationlawblog.com, February, 2010)
"This is an important book. ... Everyone associated with litigation--lawyers, business executives, law professors--should read this book. ... it provides a useful summary of the results of 35 years of research by psychologists and economists in the judgment and decision making field ... . Beyond Right and Wrong will make its way as professors adopt it for use in law and business school courses and as corporate legal departments discover its value in reducing the cost of litigation." (Michael Palmer, Amazon.com, February, 2010)
