This Wednesday, former EconLog blogger James Schneider is coming to GMU to present a draft of his amazing new book, The Deadly Sins: An Exploration of Behavioral Health Economics.  Schneider, a true polymath, interweaves research in economics, medicine, and psychology to teach us how to think and what to think about diet, exercise, addiction, mountain-climbing, and much more.

I’ve been reading drafts of this book for years, and I am a huge fan.  This is the book that deserves to be the next Freakonomics.  Publishers, you heard it here first!
