Public Health and behaviour change

Behavioral Epidemiology. Principles and Applications

It is quite surprising that a new book on Behavioral Epidemiology forgets Tversky and Kahneman, or Thaler. I couldn't find any reference to their works. After all these decades it seems that their works should be taken into account. Epidemiology and Public Health need to review its foundations, basically its rational decision making paradigm that has been their foundations.
I thought that this book could help, but finally I saw that only the first chapters are partially of interest. We'll have to wait.
