Book Summary of Risk Intelligence: How to Live with Uncertainty

In an age of global uncertainty it has become increasingly difficult to work out what exactly should be done next. In Risk Intelligence, Dylan Evans outlines a powerful form of thinking; one where the same decision making and intuition seen in the best poker players can be effectively transferred to business, politics and everyday life.

There is a special kind of intelligence for dealing with risk and uncertainty. It doesn't correlate with IQ and most psychologists fail to spot it because it is found in such a disparate, rag-tag group of people such as weather-forecasters, professional gamblers and hedge-fund managers.

This book shows just how important risk intelligence is. Many people in positions which require high risk intelligence - doctors, financial regulators and bankers - seem unable to navigate doubt and uncertainty. Risk Intelligence is a traveller's guide to the twilight zone of probabilities and speculation. Dylan Evans shows us how risk intelligence is vital to making good decisions, from dealing with climate change to combating terrorism. He argues that we can all learn a lot from expert gamblers, not just about money, but about how to make decisions in all aspects of our lives.

Nils November 28, 2012 review from Goodreads

Though provoking popular psychology of the decision-making process. Not as clear as it ought to be about the cognitive and emotional difference between assessing uncertainty and assessing ambiguity.
