The Interdisciplinary Science of Consumption is a welcome and needed contribution to knowledge and insight into the nature and mechanisms of consumption...Overall, the articles are informative and complementary, adhering together as a collective quite well. The content is often mutually supportive, with a number of crosscitations throughout the book, resulting in a coherent and insightful perspective on human consumption...In addition to providing some insight into the core topic of consumption, the primarily psychological orientation of this book provides a nice window into the current state of the psychological sciences and their relationships to other aligned fields, with contributions across evolutionary psychology, social psychology, personality theory, decision theory, heuristics, neuroscience, behavioral economics, life history theory, psychopathology, and ethology.(Metapsychology)
