This is an excellent book and there are no viable competing texts for undergraduate experimental economics. Charles Noussair, University of Arizona oeThis is a great book for teaching undergraduates, covering a host of topics from which teachers can choose, and including experiments to do in class. Charles Holt, one of the pioneers of experimental economics, is a clear thinker and a great expositor. There are no competitors to this book. Guillaume R. Fr (c)chette, New York University oeCharlie Holt has been at the very forefront in bringing experiments into the mainstream of economic research and, especially, in using experiments to teach economics.
