Reinhard Selten, to date the only German Nobel Prize laureate in economics, celebrates his 80th birthday in 2010. While his contributions to game theory are well-known, the behavioral side of his scientific work has received less public exposure, even though he has been committed to experimental research during his entire career, publishing more experimental than theoretical papers in top-tier journals. This Festschrift is dedicated to Reinhard Selten's exceptional influence on behavioral and experimental economics. In this collection of academic highlight papers, a number of his students are joined by leading scholars in experimental research to document the historical role of the "Meister" in the development of the research methodology and of several sub-fields of behavioral economics. Next to the academic insight in these highly active fields of experimental research, the papers also provide a glance at Reinhard Selten's academic and personal interaction with his students and peers.

"Getting Schooled" is a humorous, insightful, occasionally irreverent, and blatantly honest memoir of Joel Edmund Anderson's life and career as a high school teacher. Beginning with his first foray into the field of education as a shy and terrified student teacher in a Conception Junction, Missouri, and continuing through the trials and tribulations as a substitute teacher in the suburbs of Chicago, a TOEFL teacher in the Peace Corps, and a full-time teacher at various schools in California, Arkansas, and Alabama, Anderson reflects on the day-to-day chaotic roller-coaster ride of a life of a teacher. With chapter titles such as, "It's a Hard Knock Life!" "There's Blood in the Water...I Think It's Mine!" "The Faculty: Staff...Infections and Meetings," and "Classroom Antics: Vibrating Pants, Rancid Gas, and Conch Shells," Anderson not only relates the real life daily triumphs and tragedies of teaching high school and navigating the education system, but he reminds teachers why they are in education in the first place and encourages them to learn from those quirky and unscripted experiences of the classroom. As Anderson says in his book, teaching is an improvisational art form, so realize that often it is the unscripted moments in life that teach us the most about life. Veteran teachers will be able to laugh along with Anderson's confessions of the the occasional chaos that broke out in his classroom and his struggles and joys as he learned to become a better teacher. Beginning teachers will be given a glimpse into what kind of career they are getting into as well. As the title says, "Getting Schooled" is all about the lessons teachers learn as they attempt to plan out their careers and live their lives.
When the principal announces that every senior must participate in a mandatory year-long Marriage Education program, Fiona Sheehan believes that her life can?t get any worse. Then she marries her ?husband?: jerky jock Todd, whose cheerleader girlfriend, Amanda, has had it in for Fiona since day one of second grade. Even worse? Amanda is paired with Fiona?s long-term crush, Gabe. At least Fiona is doing better than her best friend, Marcie, who is paired up with the very quiet, very mysterious Johnny Mercer.
Pranks, fights, misunderstandings, and reconciliations ensue in an almost Shakespearean comedy of errors about mistaken first impressions, convoluted coupling, and hidden crushes.
"If I'd known!" groaned Winifred Cranston, otherwise Wendy, with a note of utter tragedy in her usually cheerful voice. "If I'd only known! D'you think I'd have come trotting back here with my baggage? Not a bit of it! Nothing in this wide world should have dragged me. I'd have turned up my hair-yes, it's quite long enough to turn up, Jess Paget, so you needn't look at it so scornfully; it's as nice as yours, and nicer! Well, I tell you I'd have turned up my hair, and run away and joined the 'Waacs' or the 'Wrens', or have driven a motor wagon or conducted a tramcar, or scrubbed floors at a hospital, or done anything-anything, I say!-rather than stay at the Abbey without Mrs. Gifford."
