Reviews

Financial Times Best Books of 2012 - Science Foreign Policy Must Read 2012 Books from Global Thinkers "A profoundly unconventional book... It's also so absorbing that I wound up reading it twice... From the first page to the last, Coates challenges deep-seated assumptions."--Bloomberg Businessweek "If anyone is qualified to unify the seemingly disparate subjects of financial markets and neurology, it's John Coates...The Hour Between Dog and Wolf is a powerful distillation of his work--and an important step in the ongoing struggle to free economics from rational-actor theory."--The Daily Beast "[I]t makes intuitive sense that biological responses inform the mood of the markets. This book puts flesh on that idea."--The Economist "Compelling."--New Scientist "[A] scintillating treatise on the neurobiology of the business cycle. Coates... draws an intimate portrait of life on a trading floor ...The result is a provocative and entertaining take on the irrational exuberance--and anxiety--of the modern economy."--Publishers Weekly "A provocative challenger to rational choice views of high finance, Coates makes an exceptionally clear, readable presentation that is bound to influence arguments about the regulation of Wall Street."--Booklist "An in-depth look at how financial risk-taking is linked to human biology, especially to the testosterone levels of young male traders, and the implications of this phenomenon for financial markets and the wider economy."--Kirkus
