    1. This book, as the subtitle suggests, delves into false knowledge and the decision making process The author cites a long litany of disasters and examines them from the view of decisions that led up to the disasters and the thought processes used.Examples such as the USS Vincennes downing an Iranian airliner and how we got into the Iraq war are very informative.The author provides concrete suggestions for avoiding decisions resulting from false knowledge and the path to wrong decisions.

    2. Well, here s the deal It sounded like a great book so I checked it out of the library BUT I found a little mouse like hole in the back of the book s cover, and me being the germ a phob I am, could not keep reading it I tried holding it open awkwardly so I wouldn t have to touch it and was patient enough until about page 12 and then gave up Will have to try another time har har.
