Risk Savvy: How To Make Good Decisions by Gerd Gigerenzer

Risk Savvy is an exploration into the way we misunderstand risk and uncertainty, often at great expense to our health, finances and relationships. However, if we better understand risk, we can develop the tools necessary to navigate this highly complex world without having to become an “expert in everything.”

  • Anyone whose decisions greatly affect others
  • People involved in the finance industry
  • Anyone who wants to make better decisions in their lives

Gerd Gigerenzer is a psychologist and director of the Center for Adaptive Behavior and Cognition at the Max Planck Institute and director of the Harding Center for Risk Literacy, both of which are in Germany. In addition, he has authored several books on decision making such as Reckoning with Risk: Learning to Live with Uncertainty and Gut Feelings: The Intelligence of the Unconscious.
