Thinking and DecidingThinking and Deciding has established itself as a required text and important reference work for students and scholars of human cognition and rationality. In this, the third edition, Jonathan Baron delves further into many of the key questions addressed in the previous editions.

By emphasizing decision making, Baron has made Thinking and Deciding, Third Edition more relevant to researchers in applied fields while maintaining its appeal to graduate and undergraduate students.
