This is a personal letter from a long time practicing engineer. I love the style. He really sounds like an engineer, doesn't he?

This is an article that appeared in a very widely distributed magazine for the practicing engineer. It is not really a review, but of some interest because it was one of the first references.

This review appeared in the German Edition of Technology Review (an MIT magazine). I had the article professionally translated because he seemed to have a dispute with my view. It sent me back to my books, but he ends saying “I love the book.”

This review contains within it the review by Mike Murphy that OUP has already quoted. Kloman is very, very famous in risk assessment. This review and the next one which is a different version of it, caused a huge jump on the English Amazon to 6,000. It has settled back a bit now, but the effect was really remarkable.
