Education engineering experts Roger C. Schank, Dimitris Lyras and Elliot Soloway apply their knowledge of cognitive science, computer software and industry to a single purpose: helping you make better decisions. They directly challenge using logic and rationality as they argue for “case-based reasoning.” Their writing is exceptionally clear, which makes the book easy to follow. Its only weakness is that the authors are so positive you can improve your decision making through software that they sometimes make it sound easier than it might be. That aside, this first-rate book’s counsel applies to all fields. getAbstract particularly recommends it to corporate leaders, software designers and those involved in knowledge management.
