Nick Wilkinson is Professor of Economics at Richmond the American International University in London and has taught economics and finance in various international institutions in the UK and USA.

He has authored two books, 'Managerial Economics: A Problem-Solving Approach', published by Cambridge University Press. His research interests lie in behavioral economics, particularly in the implications of evolutionary biology and neuroscience for behavioral economics.Matthias Klaes is President of the Scottish Economic Society and Convener of the Scottish Centre for Economic Methodology. He has published widely in organisational and behavioral economics and finance, and regularly acts as an adviser to both private and public sector bodies. His current research focuses on the behavioral dimensions of online marketplaces and digital finance.

The third edition of this successful textbook is a comprehensive, rigorous survey of the major topics in the field of behavioral economics. Building on the strengths of the second edition, it offers an up-to-date and critical examination of the latest literature, research, developments and debates in the field. Offering an inter-disciplinary approach, the authors incorporate psychology, evolutionary biology and neuroscience into the discussions. And, ultimately, they consider what it means to be `rational', why we so often indulge in `irrational' and self-harming behavior, and also why `irrational' behavior can sometimes serve us well. A perfect book for Economics students taking a module in Behavioural Economics at higher undergraduate level, or for students with an economics background taking a behavioural economics module at Master's level.
