Reviews

A key voice on a vast array of economic issues for more than two decades * Barack Obama *
Does what Krueger did best - brings economics to life, and life to economics * The Times *
The music business keeps re-inventing itself (from records, to tape, to CDs to streaming) and Alan Krueger covers all the bases. As one former LSE student once sang: 'its only rock and roll but I like it, like it, yes I do.' That applies to this book too * Richard Thaler, author of 'Nudge' *
An eye-opening and entertaining read * The Economist *
An absolutely brilliant mind. The definition of left and right brain balance * Quincy Jones *
An intriguing read for those who want to understand how their favourite bands are - or aren't, as the case may be - staying afloat in the streaming era * Mojo *
The author's sparkling intelligence and lively prose make for a thought-provoking and enjoyable read ... [a] vivid, human portrait provided of the broader music ecosystem * New York Times *
Rockonomics is entertaining, educational and enlightening. Alan Krueger gives us a backstage tour of the music industry - and in doing so, he creates a brilliant metaphor for our entire economy. Highly recommended * Harlan Coben *
Krueger's book does a fine job describing the financial underpinnings of the music trade and pulling together the many still-shifting strands which will determine its future * Reuters *
[A] highly readable book...It is Krueger's meticulous attention to detail that makes his work so compelling -- John Meagher * Irish Independent Review *
