Anmeldelser

«The techniques and habits of mind set out in this book are a gift to anyone who has to think about what the future might bring. In other words, to everyone.»

Economist

«A terrific piece of work that deserves to be widely read . . . Highly recommended.»

Independent

«This marvelous book tells an exciting story of ordinary people beating experts in a very serious game. It is also a manual for thinking clearly in an uncertain world. Read it.»

Daniel Kahneman

«Full of excellent advice – it is the best thing I have read on predictions . . . Superforecasting is an indispensable guide to this indispensable activity.»

The Times

«Philip Tetlock has transformed the science of prediction.»

Spectator

«Superforecasting is the most important scientific study I’ve ever read on prediction.»

Bloomberg View

«A fascinating study of what it is that makes some forecasters consistently better than others.»

International Politico

«Tetlock's work is fascinating and important, and he and Gardner have written it up with verve. - Financial Times »

Stephen Cave

«Superforecasting by Philip Tetlock and Dan Gardner, is one of the most interesting business and finance books published in 2015.»

John Kay, Financial Times

«What I found most interesting was the continuous process of integrating new information to test and modify existing beliefs … clearly a beneficial skill in financial markets»

Citywire

«Tetlock writes boldly about wanting to improve what he sees as the bloated, expensive – and not terribly accurate – intelligence apparatus that advises our politicians and drives global affairs.»

City A.M.

«Philip Tetlock’s Superforecasting is a common-sense guide to thinking about decision-making and the future by a man who knows this terrain like no one else.»

Books of the Year, Bloomberg Business

«Tetlock and Gardner believe anyone can improve their forecasting ability by learning from the way they work. If that's true, people in business and finance who make an effort to do so have a lot to gain – and those who don't, much to lose.»

Financial Post

«Social science has enormous potential, especially when it combines 'rigorous empiricism with a resistance to absolute answers.' The work of Philip Tetlock possesses these qualities.»

Scientific American

«A fascinating book.»

PR Week

«The best way to know if an idea is right is to see if it predicts the future. But which ideas, which methods, which people have a track record of non-obvious predictions vindicated by the course of events? The answers will surprise you, and they have radical implications for politics, policy, journalism, education, and even epistemology – how we can best gain knowledge about the world. The casual style of Superforecasting belies the profundity of its message.»

Steven Pinker

«Superforecasting is a very good book. In fact it is essential reading - which I have never said in any of my previous Management Today reviews . . . It should be on every manager's and investor's reading list around the topics du jour of decision-making, prediction and behavioural economics.»

Andrew Wileman, Management Today

«Read Philip Tetlock’s Superforecasting, instead of political pundits who don’t what they’re talking about.»

Dominic Cummings

«Offers a valuable insight into the future of management.»

CMI Management Book of the Year judges

«Captivating . . . [Tetlock's] writing is so engaging and his argument so tantalizing, readers will quickly be drawn into the challenge . . . A must-read field guide for the intellectually curious.»

Kirkus Reviews

«Just as modern medicine began when a farsighted few began to collect data and keep track of outcomes, to trust objective 'scoring' over their own intuitions, it's time now for similar demands to be made of the experts who lead public opinion. It's time for evidence-based forecasting.»

Washington Post

«Tetlock and his colleagues [have] found that there is such a thing as foresight, and it’s not a gift that’s bestowed upon special people, but is a skill that can be learned and developed . . . To obtain this apparent superpower does not take a PhD or an exceptionally high IQ; it takes a certain mindset.»

Guardian

«Superforecasting is a rare book that will make you smarter and wiser. One of the giants of behavioral science reveals how to improve at predicting the future.»

Adam Grant

«The material in Superforecasting is new, and includes a compendium of best practices for prediction . . . [It offers] us all an opportunity to understand and react more intelligently to the confusing world around us.»

New York Times Book Review

«Tetlock's 'Ten Commandments For Aspiring Superforecasters' should probably have a place of honor in most business meeting rooms.»

Forbes

«There isn't a social scientist in the world I admire more than Phil Tetlock.»

Tim Harford

«Fascinating and breezily written.»

Sunday Times

«Superforecasting is a fascinating book.»

Daily Mail
