Detection Theory, Second Edition is an introduction to one of the most important tools for analysis of data where choices must be made and performance is not perfect. Originally developed for evaluation of electronic detection, detection theory was adopted by psychologists as a way to understand sensory decision making, then embraced by students of human memory. It has since been utilized in areas as diverse as animal behavior and X-ray diagnosis.

"For the last many years I have been suggesting Macmillan and Creelman to those who ask me for a reference to detection theory. It is an excellent book and has proved useful to a wide variety of behavioral scientists who need detection theory as a tool. I am delighted to have this new edition to recommend, an edition which includes material that should make it of use to still more investigators. The new information about multidimensional signal-detection theory allows analysis of more complex experimental designs and, even more importantly from my perspective, analysis of situations where there are multiple detectors, or channels, or pathways."

"Rarely, I believe, has a book so fine in its first edition been as enhanced in its second. It continues to serve handsomely as a handbook, neatly laying out practically everything an experimenter needs in order to select from and apply a wide range of methods and measures. Its purpose as a textbook has been notably advanced: for example, early chapters on basic detection theory and alternatives are reorganized to make fundamental ideas more accessible and the later material on complex stimuli and methods is integrated by a tutorial treatment of recent developments in multidimensional detection theory. This volume's friendliness to the reader, and its broad coverage and considerable sophistication (do see the "essays"), make it highly suitable for the student and very likely informative even for the experienced investigator."
