Behavioral Economics Book Recommendations

While searching the Geary Behaviour Center I found a wonderful list of behavioral economic books. Let me know what you think .

“Judgement Under Uncertainty: Heurisics and Biases” is a classic

“Advances in Behavioural Economics” is still the best for me in the relatively recent field

“Nudge” is the recent work by Thaler and Sunstein that has created a great deal of discussion

Ariely’s “Predictably Irrational” details much of his experimental work

Camerer’s “behavioural game theory” is a tougher trip but worth it

Exotic Preferences by Lowenstein is a great overview of his and others work on preference formation, emotion and decision making
