What determines 'success' and 'failure' in sports? Clearly, good judgment and decision-making play a crucial role in influencing sporting outcomes, and in determining the success or failure of individual athletes, teams, coaches, and referees alike. But what do we really know about the implications of judgment and decision-making on sport? Judgment, Decision-Making and Success in Sport introduces the fundamental approaches of Judgment and Decision-Making (JDM) research in psychology and applies them directly to a variety of JDM problems in sport. In addition to presenting a general overview of the field, several specific judgment and decision-making problems encountered by athletes, coaches, managers, and referees are considered, and recommendations are made for their effective resolution. Among the many topics addressed are the evaluation of athletic performance; motivational and emotional judgments; optimizing judgment processes; the decisions of coaches, managers, and referees; and the prediction of sports results. Enlightening and informative, Judgment, Decision-Making and Success in Sport illustrates the exciting potential of the application of JDM to the world of sports.
A comprehensive source of knowledge derived from the most influential, diverse, and reliable theoretical and experimental references. The authors describe complex concepts, and their applications, in a simple and easy-to-understand language, which benefit both the expert and novice scholars. Judgment, Decision-Making and Success in Sport is a book recommended to all those who wish to further their knowledge and understanding of performers’ behaviors and achievements. —Gershon T Gershon Tenenbaum, Benjamin S.
