1. “Statistical Decision Theory: Foundations, Concepts and Methods” by J O Berger
2. “Statistical Decision Theory and Bayesian Analysis” by J O Berger

“Statistical Decision Theory and Bayesian Analysis” Book Review: This book discusses the empiric and hierarchical Bayesian analysis, Bayesian calculation, Bayesian communication and group decision making. New sections such as modern topics such as minimax multivariate estimation (Stein) are also included.

3. “Multiple Statistical Decision Theory” by S S Gupta and D Huang

“Multiple Statistical Decision Theory” Book Review: This book discusses the theory and practice of decision-making. The decision rules in the action space with a finite number of elements are the so-called multiple decision procedures. It involves the theory of applied general decision to establish some modified principles that are appropriate for issues in this field. This book will be useful for advanced and graduate students.

4. “Predictably Irrational, Revised and Expanded Edition: The Hidden Forces That Shape Our Decisions” by Dan Ariely
5. “Semiorders: Properties, Representations, Applications (Theory and Decision Library B)” by Marc Pirlot and P Vincke

“Semiorders: Properties, Representations, Applications (Theory and Decision Library B)” Book Review: This book discusses fields such as psychometrics, economics, decision-making, linguistics and archaeology. It requires structure and the analysis of its basic properties. The book also defines the numerical representations of semiorders, the generalizations of the definition and the aggregation of semiorders to valued relations.

6. “Decision Making: The Brick of Choice: How to make better decisions” by James Newell
7. “Decision Theory and Decision Analysis: Trends and Challenges” by Sixto Ríos

“Decision Theory and Decision Analysis: Trends and Challenges” Book Review: This book discusses the state-of-the-art surveys of different aspects of decision analysis and utility theory. It requires theoretical contributions, partial beliefs and desires, to decision-making under uncertainty. Unanticipated utility theories and multi-criteria decision strategies are also explained in the book. This book will be useful for artificial intelligence, economics and environmental studies.

8. “Decision Theory and Decision Behaviour” by A Rapoport

“Decision Theory and Decision Behaviour” Book Review: This book discusses the state-of-the-art surveys of different aspects of decision analysis and utility theory. It requires theoretical contributions, partial beliefs and desires, to decision-making under uncertainty. Unanticipated utility theories and multi-criteria decision strategies are also explained in the book. This book will be useful for artificial intelligence, economics and environmental studies.

9. “Markets, Risk and Money: Essays in Honor of Maurice Allais (Theory and Decision Library B)” by Bertrand Munier

10. “Effectivity Functions in Social Choice (Theory and Decision Library C)” by J Abdou and Hans Keiding

“Effectivity Functions in Social Choice (Theory and Decision Library C (8))” Book Review: This book is useful for Engineering students. It treats a highly specialized topic, namely effec­tivity functions, which are a tool for describing the power structure implicit in social choice situations of various kinds. It contains exactly the information which is needed in several problems of implementation, that is in designing the rules for individual behaviour. It discusses coherent theory about the role of the power structure in cooperative implementation. It contains numerous examples and case studies.

11. “Cost-Benefit Analysis and the Theory of Fuzzy Decisions” by Dompere

“Cost-Benefit Analysis and the Theory of Fuzzy Decisions” Book Review: The recent developments in value theory of computable general prices in cost-benefit analysis under fuzzy rationality are mentioned in this book. The book covers mathematical theories of computable equilibrium, social discount rate, contingent valuation, and hedonic pricing methods. The uses of fuzzy decision algorithms and multidisciplinary cost-benefit analysis are highlighted. The computational problems of optimal taxation, cost-benefit distributions, social goal-objective formation and rent-seeking activities are presented in it. The book will be useful for the practitioners, researchers, graduate students, and policy makers in economics, engineering, as well as physical, social, and medical sciences.
