"...provides an excellent review of the important theories of discrimination and similarity....Nearly 500 references identify access to all of the major attempts at mathematizing knowledge of psychophysical judgment since Gauss' time; this alone makes the book a worthy addition to anyone's library."
—Perceptual and Motor Skills
"The historical thread, the linking of the mathematical and the empirical, and the eloquence with which ideas are expressed is outstanding and extraordinary."
Arizona State University
"Overall Link has written a book that, in its attempt to unify a number of different experimental paradigms, is both ambitious and of the highest importance. Furthermore, he has done so in a manner that is accessible, not only to the working research scientist, but to the student as well....Link has managed....to simplify and streamline the technical developments to a remarkable degree, producing one of the most readable introductions to random walk theory to have appeared to date....Not least among its virtues in any of these capacities is the sense of intellectual commitment reflected in the writing. On every page we as readers are reminded that these questions and ideas really do matter, and for this reason, if for no other, the author deserves our thanks."
