This article reviews and discusses Rik Peels' new book Responsible Belief. The book is an excellent addition to the literature on doxastic responsibility, making contributions regarding the scope of the materials that are relevant to assessments of doxastic responsibility, the nature of doxastic excuses, and the prospects for ignorance as an excuse. After describing these virtues, two objections are raised concerning the core account of doxastic responsibility.
