Editorial Reviews

Elinor 'strom
Richard Williams discusses the potential benefits of cooperative behavior in a manner that shows the potential benefits individuals can gain in some settings by engaging cooperatively with others. It is important that we re-introduce a deep understanding of cooperation as one of the core foundations for achieving higher returns. An excellent book for all of us to read.
Howard Zinn
Richard Williams makes an important contribution with this book. It is a good time for us to think about cooperation, as we see clearly today the disasters brought about by the "market economy" and its cutthroat competition, its corruption, it emphasis on profit over people. This book is thoughtful and practical, and I hope it will be widely read.
