Large scale behavioral interventions work in some social contexts, but fail in others. The book explains this phenomenon with diverse personal and social behavioral motives, guided by research in economics, psychology, and international consulting done with UNICEF. The book offers tested tools that mobilize mass media, community groups, and autonomous "first movers" (or trendsetters) to alter harmful collective behaviors.

David Henderson, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Cristina Bicchieri (2006) advanced a powerful and well-received account of norms. Her work reflects important ways in which philosophical and social scientific reflection on norms can be joined to great advantage. In its empirical richness, her work goes beyond the also important work of Philip Pettit (1990) and by Brennan, Eriksson, Goodin, and Southwood (2013). Bicchieri understands various kinds of norms as rules for which agents have a conditional preference to
conform. Such preferences are keyed to various expectationsempirical expectations and normative expectations...This is a fascinating and informative readone rich in its appreciation for complexities and grounded in concrete engagement with such complexities.

Ulf Hlobil, Metascience 'Philosophy isn't useful for changing the world,' parents of philosophy students and Karl Marx tell us (at least about non-Marxist philosophy). Cristina Bicchieri's new book Norms in the Wild provides an impressive antidote against this worry...To sum up, this is a fascinating book, and everyone interested in social norms and social change should read it.
