I search the popular books that related to behavioural economics. Some universities listed it as a must to read for students who really likes behavioral economics. I have some of it. It read around 11 out of 75 books that enlisted there. Seriously, I thought i already have a good coverage for behavioural economics. In the end, I just realized that I just read about 12% from LISTED popular books.
For those who are interested in behavioural economics, this is the list of popular books that a must to read. I made this list by summarizing from several lists. Fyi, the idea to list the book is coming from Prof. Rubinstein. He also has a list of must-a-read book. Just go to his website and you will find the same. He also has several downloadable books.
