CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

As all of our customers will be aware, the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic is likely to cause disruption to many services. Although everyone at Dandy is currently fit and well, restrictions that have been imposed, both voluntary and compulsory, have already begun to affect our supply chains. This is particularly true for our many overseas customers, where border and transport restrictions can be imposed at little notice. We will always try to keep you informed of any problems that may affect your order, but we ask for your understanding at this difficult time. If you have any questions, then please email us at enquiries@dandybooksellers.com, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Electronic products such as e-books and online subscriptions should be largely unaffected, but please allow us a little longer time than usual to respond.

Cost-benefit analysis: a practical guide is a complete guide to the principles and practice of using cost-benefit analysis (CBA) effectively for making better decisions and allocating resources.

This comprehensive and accessible text can be used without prior knowledge of economics, and provides the necessary skills to understand the rationale of CBA, interpret and use existing analyses, and undertake basic CBA unaided.

The second edition of this popular guide:
  • Takes a practical approach to CBA, providing examples for readers
  • Deals explicitly with probabilities and risk
  • Shows how social, environmental and political aspects can be taken into account
  • Gives guidance on using computer software and avoiding its pitfalls
  • Describes the application of CBA to many sectors, including health, education, transport, and water
  • Includes guidance on the presentation and reporting of analyses to multiple audiences
  • Guides readers to sources of more specialised advice
  • Describes multi-criterion decision analyses

Written by a practitioner, rather than an economist, and based on many years' experience of using CBA, Cost-benefit analysis: a practical guide is a detailed learning aide for students and practitioners. It will also serve as a useful reference book for all, with an extensive glossary and index
