Any traditional economists feeling some skepticism about behavioral economics but not sure why should read this book." -Charles R. Plott, California Institute of Technology
Open Book Publishers was founded in 2008 by academics at the University of Cambridge. Since then, it has grown into an international network of scholars who believe that it is time for academic publishing to become fairer, faster, and more accessible.
