This is an extended review of D. J. White's Decision Methodology. It is written to draw attention to the strengths and weaknesses of this unique and remarkable book. Every operational researcher should gain by reading it. Some may try to extend the methodology outlined, especially where there are gaps in present understanding. Some may collect and publish practical examples to extend the range of illustrative problems and organizational settings. Some may seek ways of overcoming the limitations imposed, by the linear properties of a book, on a coherent treatment of multidimensional interactive concepts. Above all, the book should be widely used for its primary purpose, as a text for those teaching would-be operational researchers what O.R. is.
