In Risk Savvy, Gerd Gigerenzer teaches us how to protect ourselves from being manipulated into unrealistic fears or hopes, and dangerous situations regarding our health and finances, by making better decisions.

Risk Savvy shows us how to ask the right questions, recognize when we don't have all the information, and know what to do about it. With a touch of humour and a range of fascinating examples, Gigerenzer examines the many psychological, societal, and mathematical factors that contribute to our collective misunderstanding of the world around us and how we can overcome them.
