Parentonomics Pre-Order Discount

The Australian cover design for Parentonomics is out. If you are in Australia or New Zealand, you can pre-order the book for a 20 percent discount (just click here).

For the rest of the world, I hope to have news for you very, very soon.

Also, here is what some other economists have to say about the book:

"Dr. Spock meets Freakonomics. Parenting will never be the same. Forget about inflation and unemployment. Here Gans uses economics and game theory to tackle really important topics, such as toilet training and fussy eaters. Parentonomics lays bare what most sleep-deprived parents only dream about. Gans may not help you become a better parent, but it will help you stay one step ahead of your kids." [Professor Barry Nalebuff, Yale University, author of Thinking Strategically]"

"A delightful read that shows how being a parent changed one economist, and how being an economist provided insight on being a parent. Now if only I could get my two-year old to eat her peas." [Professor Susan Athey, Harvard University, winner for 2007 John Bates Clark Medal]
