"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."
"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."
"[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."
"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.”
"The picture of humans as rational economic machines has gone down the tubes. This book looks at the biology of why Homo economicus is a myth, and no one is better positioned to write this than Coates—he is a neuroscientist AND an economist AND an ex-Wall Street trader AND a spectacular writer. A superb book."
—Robert Sapolsky, neuroscientist, Stanford University
