From the Amazon review:

Views of this edition:
‘Planning Under Pressure is simply the best book to come out of any problem structuring method. It is a model of lucidity, organization and presentation. Now it is even better! The book shows the reader how to carry out Strategic Choice both with and without the elegant software.’
Jonathan Rosenhead, Professor of Operational Research, London School of Economics

‘Working with companies such as Sainsbury’s, RTZ and PowerGen, I have found Strategic Choice invaluable. The approach helps groups of managers cut through complexities, uncertainties and controversies.
Richard Ormerod, Professor and Director of Executive Short Course Programme, Warwick Business School.

‘Strategic Choice represents one of the most original contributions ever made to a working theory of planning. The new edition of Friend and Hickling’s book powerfully reminds us of this.’
Peter Hall, Professor of Planning, University College London.

Reviews of the first edition:

`Planning Under Pressure is an extraordinarily useful text for students of planning who are bent on adapting economic rationality to the constraints of real life practice. The book should enjoy a long and vigorous life.’
Donald Schon, Professor of Urban Studies, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

‘The Strategic Choice Approach represents a major innovation in planning theory…It shows the importance of including all stakeholders and of building increasingly wide networks…It has occasioned a sea-change in the outlook of my students…I have also used it with great success in a number of organizational field projects with managers in both the public and private sectors.’
Eric Trust, Formerly Chairman of Tavistock Institute of Human Relations and Professor of Organizational Behaviour, University of Pennsylvania. –This text refers to the Paperback edition.
