This book gives decision-makers a logical overall philosophy of risk that will enable them to make sound and consistently defensible decisions about the acceptability of risk. The authors examine a variety of activities - as diverse as major industrial projects and medicine, finance and sport, transport and manufacturing - to identify the factors common to all determinations of risk acceptability, and develop a hypothesis about the aspects of risk that are universally acceptable.
