Philosophical Magazine Econophysics and Physical Economics by Peter Richmond, Jürgen Mimkes & Stefan Hutzler published by Oxford University Press.

"The three authors are all experts in the field and have made seminal contributions to many aspects of econophysics. Their book is packed with interesting figures and thoughts on, to name a few, speculative bubbles, online betting markets and intermarriage in binary societies. I recommend it to anyone interested in the fascinating and interdisciplinary subject of econophysics."
