"This is a seminal work which demands the serious attention of all those interested in rational choice." David Gauthier, University of Pittsburgh "McClennen's book is a highly interesting and valuable contribution to the growing literature on the nature of reason...Moreover McClennen's discussion of a wealth of central ideas and issues in decision theory bearing on his defence of resolute choice (to which I cannot hope to do justice in this review) takes the reader through some fascinating territory. The journey is well worth the price of admission." Jean Hampton, Canadian Philosophical Reviews
