E-books

My current book project, scheduled for completion in early 2019, brings together ideas from my early books (which you can download further down this page in scanned form) and knowledge that I have acquired in the 32 years since Lifestyle Economics was published. This book will offer a synthesis of ideas from both ‘old’ and ‘new’ approaches to behavioural economics, with a strong evolutionary flavour. Its working title — Beyond Misbehaving: An Evolutionary Approach to Behavioural Economics — alludes to Richard Thaler’s (2015) autobiography, Misbehaving, a book that I like a lot and set my students as required reading, but which goes nowhere near as far as I thinking behavioural economics can go. You can download a draft of the preface, draft contents, and drafts of the first four chapters via as a single pdf file in camera-ready format via the following link: Beyond Misbehaving: An Evolutionary Approach to Behavioural Economics (draft chapters 1-4). Your comments would be most welcome.
