Publisher's Summary

Psychology of Intelligence Analysis has been required reading for intelligence officers studying the art and science of intelligence analysis for decades. Richards Heuer, Jr. discusses in the audiobook how fundamental limitations in human mental processes can prompt people to jump to conclusions and employ other simplifying strategies that lead to predictably faulty judgments known as cognitive biases. These analytic mindsets cannot be avoided, but they can be overcome through the application of more structured and rigorous analytic techniques including the Analysis of Competing Hypotheses.

Psychology of Intelligence Analysis is expertly narrated by Scott R. Pollak.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Good read for beginners

Some useful informations for newbies and people who are generally interested in critical analysis. Nowadays too many people adhere to their confirmation bias. In psychoanalysis trained people know that perhaps.

Valuable read

If you come from an intelligence background or not, this book is useful, especially those wishing to view themselves retrospectively or introspectively (first one and then the other); without the prevailing bias by which they may not know they are affected.

Concise and practical

This book is not in-depth, it's not abstract, it's not technical. It's is therefore often not technically correct and lacks a certain depth. But, if you want a relatively short book to inform you how to improve your ability to think critically, whether in the field of intelligence, medicine, or law enforcement, this book will do the job and doesn't require much foreknowledge. Cognitive scientists may not learn much from this book though, except how to explain this subject matter clearly and pleasantly to a diverse audience.

Narration is just great.

Would recommend.
