Our Purpose

Probabilistic Publishing's mission is to publish significant decision and risk analysis books and keep these books in print so that key publications are available for managers, executives, students, faculty members, and decision analysis professionals. We have deliberately kept our prices low so that students, employees, and small business owners can reasonably afford them. This is truly a labor of love for us, as we have found decision analysis to be a compelling and useful set of tools and have enjoyed working within the "DA" community.

Discounts

If you are a student, faculty member, and/or hold membership in AACE, INFORMS, DAAG, DAS, or if you are a Crystal Ball or @Risk user, we can offer your a discount on any of our products.

We also offer quantity discounts - please contact us for more information.

eBooks

We ported Pat Leach's Number? over to the Kindle several years ago and were disappointed with the sales. However, in December, 2010, sales of the electronic book format started to increase. We were able to publish Paul Papayoanou's Game Theory on both iPad and Kindle formats and moved Number to the iPad. At the same time, we lowered the eBook price to $9.95, and eSales have done very well. We also published Creating a Culture of Profitability on both Kindle and iBookstore.

We haven't ported Skinner or Winkler or Hollmann, though, as (1) we've had no requests for eBook format for these important DA texts, and (2) students and practitioners we've talked with have told us that they prefer the traditional format for books like these.

We have not ported either Number or Game Theory to the "Nook" though, as none of our customers have expressed interest in this. However, if you prefer that format, please let us know and we'll consider it. Also, note that there is a free Kindle app for the iPad, so those of you who switch from Kindle to iPad can still access your books.
