In high-stakes investing and business, success or failure largelydepends on how well you play the game of risk-a game in which therules of competition are constantly being rewritten. Strategiesthat proved effective in the past are no longer enough to wintoday. The key to success is not to rely on yesterday's news, butto peer into the future and ask what could happen tomorrow. Presenting a bold new way of thinking about risk, in SeeingTomorrow Ron Dembo and Andrew Freeman offer a dynamic frameworkdesigned to enhance our ability to make important decisions, andconsequently change how we manage our investments. By incorporatinginvestors' individual circumstances and tolerances -as well as theunique reasoning behind their decision making-this innovativeapproach captures much more of how we actually think aboutrisk. From the basic building blocks required for forward-looking riskmanagement, Dembo and Freeman define and explore the roles andsignificance of such fundamentals as time horizons, risk measures,benchmarks, and scenarios. Once the foundation is laid, theseelements are used to construct a solid architecture for riskmanagement and risk-adjusted analysis that is not only generalenough to be able to handle a multitude of risks, but also able topresent many different measures of risk. With clear-cut explanations and intriguing real-world examples,Seeing Tomorrow leads you step by step through the authors'groundbreaking risk rules. These include: choosing an appropriatetime horizon, selecting scenarios, computing Value at Risk (VAR),assessing both the upside and downside of a potential deal,calculating Regret, and compiling a reliable Regret matrix. Bycombining Regret, Upside, and a measure of our tolerance for risk,the authors demonstrate how these components create a powerful newway of approaching decisions. They offer guidance on very specificreal life problems-such as buying a house or suing someone-as wellas on broad matters of strategy and investing. Written by two leading authorities in the field, Seeing Tomorrow isa milestone addition to risk literature that will dramaticallyalter the way you view, identify, and manage risk. It is must reading for investors and decision makers alike. "Seeing Tomorrow is a powerhouse in the understanding of risk. Withtheir ingenious blend of psychology and rigorous quantitativeanalysis, the authors have created an authoritative and innovativehandbook of risk management that is essential for bothpractitioners and theoreticians." -Peter L. Bernstein author,Against the Gods and Capital Ideas. "This excellent and readable book provides an innovative approachto choosing actions when the outcomes are uncertain. Anyone with aninterest in improving their decision-making skills would benefitfrom reading this. Anyone with a professional interest in riskmanagement must read it." -Stephen A. Ross Fischer Black VisitingProfessor of Finance Massachusetts Institute of Technology SloanSchool of Management Sterling Professor of Economics and Finance,Yale University. "Ron Dembo and Andrew Freeman have done an excellent job ofdescribing how to think about and measure risk. This will becomerequired reading for businesses and personal investmentexecutives." -Ned C.

Lately, I have been re-acquainting myself with the writings of Rich Alapack through his latest books -- Love’s Pivotal Relationships, Sorrow’s Profiles, and White Hot True Blue. These reminded me of the lucid beauty of Alapack’s writing style and of the deep and penetrating insights that he shares with his reader. I recognize myself and others in the vignettes these books provide, and have been incorporating his texts into my recent graduate classes. Alapack’s writings mark a return to the original form in which phenomenologists used to communicate with their readers: via straightforward reflection; drawing upon a lifetime of experience; speaking in simple, descriptive language; and capturing the essence of human experience by mastering the art of speaking truthfully and authentically. It takes a certain kind of free-courageousness to engage in such writing today, in an intellectual climate where demands for methodological rigor (in the form of operationalism run amok) have compromised manuscripts submitted for review, in favor of half-hearted statements of methodological orthodoxy followed by statements of “findings” that amount to little more than summaries of raw data. What Alapack has achieved in his recent writings, and especially in his latest venture, The Splendor of Seeing and the Magic of Touch, is a truth-speaking both from the author’s heart and from his lifetime of authentic dialogue with the interlocutors he has found along his own life’s journey. The gift that he gives to his reader is the gift of inviting us to join him on his own path to enlightenment. Scott D Churchill, PhD Professor and Graduate Program Director University of Dallas Editor-in-Chief, The Humanistic Psychologist “This book is heart-warming, joyful, and insightfully brilliant. This author’s newest publication, once again, represents a heart-felt and dedicated effort to researching human phenomena from the laboratory of day-today life. In this lifelong work, the author shares many of his personal experiences, experiences of others, then invites us to share a developmental journey through monumental experiences in our childhood, adolescence and young adulthood. He delves into important developmental topics that are rarely, if ever, discussed in mainstream psychological writing. Dr. Alapack offers reflected insight into these experiences, in a playful yet profound manner, allowing us to gain a deeper understanding of who we are, as perfectly imperfect people. Exploring the dynamics of peekaboo with a young-one, playing tag as a juvenile, sharing the exhilarating and/or bitter-sweet memories of the first kiss, barely coping with or perhaps flaunting a teenage hickey, will have you smiling with fondness, as you are reminded of your own experiences. These personal stories and parables are timeless and ageless. This text should be mandatory reading for both students and researchers in developmental psychology. Parents and Educators will find this book personally enriching, and will ultimately benefit from a more in- depth understanding of themselves and their children. I have seen Dr. Alapack’s work grow and expand over the years, and this book is a shining example of an existential phenomenologist par excellence. His dedicated work has had a major and significant impact on my personal and professional life.” Paul Watters, B.A., B.Ed., M.Ed. M.Ed., Lambton Kent District School Board, Sarnia, Ontario, Canada

Russell Hardin presents a new explication of David Hume's moral and political theory. With Hume, he holds that our normative views can be scientifically explained but they cannot be justified as true. Hume argued for the psychological basis of such views. In particular, he argued for sympathy as the mirroring of the psychological sensations and emotions of others. By placing Hume in the developing tradition of social science, as a strong forerunner of his younger friend Adam Smith, Hardin demonstrates Hume's strong strategic sense, his nascent utilitarianism, his powerful theory of convention as a main source of social and political order, and his recognition of moral and political theory as a single enterprise.
