MEDIA REVIEWS
"Gould is a retired US Marine officer and former educational researcher at the U. of Wisconsin, and he employs historical examples, researchbased principles and practical advice to help general readers identify and avoid bad decision-making skills. The author uses examples such as Napoleon's winter attack on Russia and the 1929 stock market crash to explain how qualities such as humility, self-discipline and critical analysis are instrumental to effective decision-making skills. Each chapter defines prudent decision-making skills in such specific realms as education, security and creativity." - Reference & Research Book News
"Prudent Decision Making reads more like thoughtful and critical analysis of decision-making than it does a guidebook or manua . . . While the book posits many conclusions that are already well established in the field of behavioral theory, the applications the author provides give life to the raw philosophy. Gould provides a chance for any decision-maker to reach better conclusions on a consistent basis." - Advisor Perspectives
