Product description

Review

The creative genius who invented the field of behavioral economics is also a master storyteller and a very funny man. All these talents are on display in this wonderful book.--Daniel Kahneman, winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics and author of Thinking, Fast and Slow

A sly and somewhat subversive history of [the economics] profession . . . engrossing and highly relevant.--Jonathan A. Knee

Highly enjoyable . . . dense with fascinating examples. . . . It is long past time to replace Econs with Humans, both in theory and in the practice of prediction.--Carol Tavris

A dryly humorous history of the revolution [Thaler] helped ignite, as well as a useful (if sometimes challenging) primer on its key concepts.--Julia M. Klein

Bound to become a classic. Now established as one of the great figures in the history of economic thought, Thaler has no predecessors. A rebel with a cause . . .[w]here he wins Olympic gold is in keen observation; his greatest insights come from actually looking.--Cass Sunstein

[A] masterful, readable account of behavioral economics. Very well done.--David Wessel, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, author of Red Ink and Ben Bernanke's War on the Great Panic

Entertaining.... An excellent read on the shortcomings of classical economic and finance theory.--Ronald L. Moy, CFA Institute

The story behind some of the most important insights in modern economics. If I had to be trapped in an elevator with any contemporary intellectual, I'd pick Richard Thaler.--Malcolm Gladwell

About the Author

Richard H. Thaler is the coauthor of the best-selling book Nudge with Cass R. Sunstein, and the author of Quasi Rational Economics and The Winner's Curse. He is a professor of behavioral science and economics at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and, in 2015, the president of the American Economic Association.
