Psychology of Intelligence Analysis

Richards J. Heuer

The book provides a collection of tools for minimizing bias, so decisions and forecasts are made in a rational fashion. The author catalogues frameworks developed over six decades of working with U.S. intelligence agencies where poor analysis can result in lost lives. While our decisions do not have fatal consequences, they can impact the financial lives of our clients, something we feel the utmost responsibility of protecting. This book aided us in our never-ending quest of improving the way we process and act upon information.
