Presents several side - by - side cases of public policy and how the economist, the engineer and the lawyer attack the issues completely differently.  Good book for gaining an understanding of how others can take a completely different viewpoint from you and you both can be right.

An example of a book with a wonderful statement of the problem, and a terrible solution to the problem.  Read the 1st 3 - 4 chapters to better understand how scientists have been shortchanged in their education on scientific evaluation.
