From the reviews:

“The editors have managed to compile an excellent handbook with contributions by leading scholars in risk theory. Although aimed at experts with a scientific background in risk, many of the book chapters would not be misplaced in (post)graduate courses on risk theory. In addition to the content, the book is carefully edited, with a brief table of content and list of references for each of the chapters, making the chapters also easily accessible on an individual basis.” (Neelke Doorn, Science and Engineering Ethics, April, 2012)

“The Handbook of Risk Theory takes it to the big city, right downtown, and explicates it from the expansive perspectives of leading academics and theorists from a wide range of disciplines. This anthology attempts, admirably, to capture the boundlessness of risk—like trying to catch lightning in a bottle—through the lens of risk theory. … It is … a magnum opus in the field of risk theory. Once you’ve read through the book’s 1187 pages, you’ll certainly know ‘risk’ well before you see it.” (Outward Bound International Journal, 2012)
