It should help readers get more out of the increasing number of references to the subject in the press and other media and enable them to better recognize some of the limitations of this important but still relatively new approach.

"Thirty years ago, the field of behavioral economics did not exist. But today it is impossible to follow economics discussions in the popular press without more than passing familiarity with the burgeoning behavioral literature. A great place to start is Hugh Schwartz's excellent A Guide to Behavioral Economics. Concise and well-written, its critical summaries of the ideas that animate this exciting new field will quickly get you up to speed." Robert H. Frank, Henrietta Johnson Louis Professor of Management and Professor of Economics, Cornell University --Back cover of A Guide to Behavioral Economics
"A magnificent job critically and laconically describing and analyzing the various theorems with a plethora of examples and applications....a highly recommended little book, an excellent introduction to all basic principles and more!"-- Journal of Socio-Economics
'Hugh Schwartz's book, A Guide to Behavioral Economics (2008), is a good general primer, it is also easy to digest, as it contains fewer than 100 pages.' FULCRUM: Data-Driven Marketing
