Google full text of this book:

This book offers a definitive and wide-ranging overview of developments in behavioral finance over the past ten years. In 1993, the first volume provided the standard reference to this new approach in finance--an approach that, as editor Richard Thaler put it, "entertains the possibility that some of the agents in the economy behave less than fully rationally some of the time." Much has changed since then. Not least, the bursting of the Internet bubble and the subsequent market decline further demonstrated that financial markets often fail to behave as they would if trading were truly dominated by the fully rational investors who populate financial theories. Behavioral finance has made an indelible mark on areas from asset pricing to individual investor behavior to corporate finance, and continues to see exciting empirical and theoretical advances.

Advances in Behavioral Finance, Volume II constitutes the essential new resource in the field. It presents twenty recent papers by leading specialists that illustrate the abiding power of behavioral finance--of how specific departures from fully rational decision making by individual market agents can provide explanations of otherwise puzzling market phenomena. As with the first volume, it reaches beyond the world of finance to suggest, powerfully, the importance of pursuing behavioral approaches to other areas of economic life.

The contributors are Brad M. Barber, Nicholas Barberis, Shlomo Benartzi, John Y. Campbell, Emil M. Dabora, Daniel Kent, François Degeorge, Kenneth A. Froot, J. B. Heaton, David Hirshleifer, Harrison Hong, Ming Huang, Narasimhan Jegadeesh, Josef Lakonishok, Owen A. Lamont, Roni Michaely, Terrance Odean, Jayendu Patel, Tano Santos, Andrei Shleifer, Robert J. Shiller, Jeremy C. Stein, Avanidhar Subrahmanyam, Richard H. Thaler, Sheridan Titman, Robert W. Vishny, Kent L. Womack, and Richard Zeckhauser.


"This is an excellent and useful book which should be recommended to all students of finance."--Peter Howells, Economic Issues


"This book provides a thorough review of progress in the field of behavioral finance over the past ten years. By every measure, it will have considerable impact. It is must reading for finance economists as well as anyone interested in behavioral economics. Graduate students and faculty alike will find this book to be an invaluable reference to which they will often refer."--David Laibson, Harvard University

"Advances in Behavioral Finance, Volume II should be on every Ph.D. reading list in finance programs. It should be seen as a finance book per se, not just a niche 'behavioral finance' book. Thaler's preface is very readable, as is the superb introduction by Thaler and Nick Barberis."--Colin Camerer, California Institute of Technology, author of Behavioral Game Theory and Advances in Behavioral Economics

"This book brings together almost all of the most important work in behavioral finance from the last decade, in a manageable presentation suitable for masters- and doctoral-level classes on the subject."--Jay R. Ritter, Cordell Professor of Finance, University of Florida
