Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dara | 2/18/2014

    " A fine book - the only reason I didn't rate it higher is that if you've read any of the popular literature about behavioral economics before, you will be familiar with the bulk of the book. The authors do a good job of relating those conclusions to financial matters, but knowing the "wow, people ARE irrational!" experiments removes some of the more interesting parts. "

    " This was like an economic Malcolm Gladwell book: lots of fascinating information that got a bit repetative in the end but still worth reading for the knowledge gained. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alma | 2/9/2014

    " outlines faulty decision making processes behind investing decisions and, amongst other things, concludes that the majority of people would be better off investing in index funds. Future reading: "How We Know What Isn't So", Amos Tversky, Daniel Kahneman. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hugh Campbell | 1/19/2014

    " Excellent book, where psychology and finance meet. Engaging and concise, with chapter summaries for easy revision! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lisa | 12/22/2013

    " Quick read, but not enough original or thought provoking content to make it memorable. There are other more worthwhile books out there that cover similar themes. The advice was too generic to be applicable/practical and some of the more interesting concepts were given too simplistic a treatment to make them engaging. It probably would have been interesting and novel to someone who hadn't read any behavioral economics books before. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wes Cobb | 12/16/2013

    " My introduction to behavioral finance, and one of my favorite works on the topic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Investing Books | 12/11/2013

    " This book is a very good introduction to behavioral finance. Furthermore it will help you to understand your bias and try to correct them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dustin | 11/29/2013

    " Unfortunate title - sounds like a self help book but is really an overview of behavioral finance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 11/14/2013

    " This is a great book to start thinking about your money. It is not over the top sophisticated and it gives the information in a format keeps you reading. Practical advice about money management and how to change a few small things to help your financial situation. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie | 11/3/2013

    " I thought Freakanomics and Predictably Irrational were better. This is a variation on the same theme, but written at a more practical level rather than a revealing series of studies. Helpful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brett W. | 10/20/2013

    " Read it multiple times! Very good insight and thought behind spending. Great book for someone looking to get a little better grasp on personal finance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 5/3/2013

    " This is a fairly easy read, but very interesting...the bottom line is, buy index funds and call it a day. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 8/11/2012

    " Read along side Nudge. This one is geared toward enabling better personal decision making. The organization is highly structured with in depth summaries. But Freakonomics was more fun to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vincent | 1/15/2012

    " An easy-to-read introduction to the subject of behavioral economics. It doesn't cover any ground that other books on the topic omit, but it is enjoyable and accurate. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Josh | 4/29/2011

    " This is a great overview of behavioral finance and really highlights some of the unconscious errors we make in making financial decisions "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikey | 2/22/2011

    " A really good book on behavioral finance and the stupid things we do with our money. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peter | 5/16/2010

    " A fantastic study of behavioral finance that anyone with a checkbook, credit cards, or a savings account should read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 1/5/2009

    " Good book about human errors when making decisions, focused on those regarding financial transactions, and provides strategies for coping with these limitations. A bit dated, but worthwhile insights into your everyday (expensive) habits. "
