Doing well with money isn’t necessarily about what you know. It’s about how you behave. And behavior is hard to teach, even to really smart people. Money—investing, personal finance, and business decisions—is typically taught as a math-based field, where data and formulas tell us exactly what to do. But in the real world people don’t make financial decisions on a spreadsheet. They make them at the dinner table, or in a meeting room, where personal history, your own unique view of the world, ego, pride, marketing, and odd incentives are scrambled together. In The Psychology of Money, award-winning author Morgan Housel shares 19 short stories exploring the strange ways people think about money and teaches you how to make better sense of one of life’s most important topics.

On a summer evening in 1994, the two members of the band KLF burned £1 million in £50 notes in a barn on the Isle of Jura. They filmed themselves tossing the bills into the fire, and made the story public. The reaction amazed them: this act of nihilism caused a public outpouring of rage. They received death threats. And yet, if the band members had squandered their wealth away on designer clothes and sports cars, would anyone have cared? We constantly make assumptions about money. We confuse it with morality. We know we need it, and we tend to want more of it, but what we do not always appreciate are the ways it affects our minds, and emotions, and can even skew our perceptions. Mind Over Money is about what money does to us. In delightfully accessible language, Hammond explores the power of money and shows how psychology and neuroscience are providing us with some extraordinary tools for making better decisions about the way we use money.

How does money figure into a happy life? In The Geometry of Wealth, behavioral finance expert Brian Portnoy delivers an inspired answer, building on the critical distinction between being rich and being wealthy. While one is an unsatisfying treadmill, the other is the ability to underwrite a meaningful life, however one chooses to define that. Truly viewed, wealth is funded contentment. At the heart of this groundbreaking perspective, Portnoy takes readers on a journey toward wealth, informed by disciplines ranging from ancient history to modern neuroscience. He contends that tackling the big questions about a joyful life and tending to financial decisions are complementary, not separate, tasks. These big questions include: • How is the human brain wired for two distinct experiences of happiness? And why can money “buy” one but not the other? • What are the touchstones of a meaningful life, and are they affordable? • Why is market savvy among the least important sources of wealth but self-awareness is among the most? • How does one strike a balance between striving for more while being content with enough? This journey memorably contours along three basic shapes: A circle, triangle and square help us to visualize how we adapt to evolving circumstances, set clear priorities, and find empowerment in simplicity. In this accessible and entertaining book, Portnoy reveals that true wealth is achievable for many - including those who despair it is out of reach - but only in the context of a life in which purpose and practice are thoughtfully calibrated.

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Dr Daniel Crosby, comes the behavioral finance book all investors have been waiting for.

In The Laws of Wealth, psychologist and behavioral finance expert Daniel Crosby offers an accessible and applied take on a discipline that has long tended toward theory at the expense of the practical. Readers are treated to real, actionable guidance as the promise of behavioral finance is realised and practical applications for everyday investors are delivered. Crosby presents a framework of timeless principles for managing your behavior and your investing process. He begins by outlining ten rules that are the hallmarks of good investor behavior, including 'Forecasting is for Weathermen' and 'If You're Excited, It's Probably a Bad Idea'. He then goes on to introduce a unique new taxonomy of behavioral investment risk that will enable investors and academics alike to understand behavioral risk in a newly coherent and complete way. From here, attention turns to the four ways in which behavioral risk can be combatted and the five equity selection methods investors should harness to take advantage of behaviorally-induced opportunities in the stock market. Throughout, readers are treated to anecdotes, research and graphics that illustrate the lessons in memorable ways. And in highly valuable 'What now?' summaries at the end of each chapter, Crosby provides clear, concise direction on what investors should think, ask and do to benefit from the behavioral research. Dr. Crosby's training as a clinical psychologist and work as an asset manager provide a unique vantage and result in a book that breaks new ground in behavioral finance. You need to follow the laws of wealth to manage your behavior and improve your investing process!

Two professors combine their fascinating and cutting-edge research in behavioral science to explain how money can buy happiness—if you follow five core principles of smart spending. Most people recognize that they need professional advice on how to earn, save, and invest their money. When it comes to spending that money, most people just follow their intuitions. But scientific research shows that those intuitions are often wrong. Happy Money offers a tour of research on the science of spending, explaining how you can get more happiness for your money. Authors Elizabeth Dunn and Michael Norton have outlined five principles—from choosing experiences over stuff to spending money on others—to guide not only individuals looking for financial security, but also companies seeking to create happier employees and provide “happier products” to their customers. Dunn and Norton show how companies from Google to Pepsi to Charmin have put these ideas into action. Along the way, Dunn and Norton explore fascinating research that reveals that luxury cars often provide no more pleasure than economy models, that commercials can actually enhance the enjoyment of watching television, and that residents of many cities frequently miss out on inexpensive pleasures in their hometowns. By the end of this “lively and engaging book” (Dan Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness), you’ll be asking yourself one simple question every time you reach for your wallet: Am I getting the biggest happiness bang for my buck?

Adapted for the stage by Tony-nominated playwright David Thompson, "A Christmas Carol" follows the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge as he discovers the true meaning of Christmas: charity, redemption, and compassion for his fellow human beings. Praised as "intelligent" and "literate" by the press, Thompson's adaptation creates a "perfect balance of Dickensian fidelity and modern theatricality." Original Christmas songs throughout the play infuse the beloved classic with an uplifting festivity that truly captures the joy and fellowship of the holiday season.

‘Time poor’ is the catch-cry of our era, and yet end-of-life retirement means we have an average of two decades of feeling time rich to look forward to . . . when we’re old. How arse-about is that? But there is an alternative to working your butt off for decades and retiring when you’re worn out: it’s called financial independence, and it means being able to cover life’s essentials and afford the luxuries you want without having to turn up to a job each day. Imagine: the freedom and flexibility to work if, when and where you like, go travelling, spend time with family or start that business you’ve been dreaming of. And with enough time and a way to earn, it’s achievable for most people through the power of passive income. Lacey Filipich knows because she’s done it herself – and has been teaching the strategies and steps for financial independence for a decade through her education company, Money School. Now, she’ll teach you all her tried-and-true lessons for redesigning your personal finances to create the life you really want. From maximising your income and cutting costs without big sacrifice, to property, shares and retirement funds, Money School explains exactly how to build a passive income that will completely change your life. Take control of how you spend your time and money to make them work for you – and get on the fast track to being financially independent and time rich.

Look out for Daniel Pink’s new book, When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing #1 New York Times Business Bestseller #1 Wall Street Journal Business Bestseller #1 Washington Post bestseller From the bestselling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind, and teacher of the popular MasterClass on Sales and Persuasion, comes a surprising--and surprisingly useful--new book that explores the power of selling in our lives. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, one in nine Americans works in sales. Every day more than fifteen million people earn their keep by persuading someone else to make a purchase. But dig deeper and a startling truth emerges: Yes, one in nine Americans works in sales. But so do the other eight. Whether we’re employees pitching colleagues on a new idea, entrepreneurs enticing funders to invest, or parents and teachers cajoling children to study, we spend our days trying to move others. Like it or not, we’re all in sales now. To Sell Is Human offers a fresh look at the art and science of selling. As he did in Drive and A Whole New Mind, Daniel H. Pink draws on a rich trove of social science for his counterintuitive insights. He reveals the new ABCs of moving others (it's no longer "Always Be Closing"), explains why extraverts don't make the best salespeople, and shows how giving people an "off-ramp" for their actions can matter more than actually changing their minds. Along the way, Pink describes the six successors to the elevator pitch, the three rules for understanding another's perspective, the five frames that can make your message clearer and more persuasive, and much more. The result is a perceptive and practical book--one that will change how you see the world and transform what you do at work, at school, and at home.

'A combination of drama, sex and good social comedy... unputdownable.' The Sunday Times 'Jilly Cooper is the very best . . . elegant, glamorous, wonderful fun.' Daily Mail Into the cut-throat world of Corinium television comes Declan O'Hara, a mega-star of great glamour and integrity with a radiant feckless wife, a handsome son and two ravishing teenage daughters. Living rather too closely across the valley is Rupert Campbell-Black, divorced and as dissolute as ever, and now the Tory Minister for Sport. Declan needs only a few days at Corinium to realise that the Managing Director, Lord Baddingham, is a crook who has recruited him merely to help retain the franchise for Corinium. Baddingham has also enticed Cameron Cook, a gorgeous but domineering woman executive, to produce Declan's programme. Declan and Cameron detest each other, provoking a storm of controversy into which Rupert plunges with his usual abandon. As a rival group emerges to pitch for the franchise, reputations ripen and decline, true love blossoms and burns, marriages are made and shattered, and sex raises its (delicious) head at almost every throw as, in bed and boardroom, the race is on to capture the Cotswold Crown. Readers adore Rivals: 'Entertaining, witty and total escape!' 'Glorious . . . fabulously happy endings for incredibly poorly behaved people!' 'A delightfully indulgent read . . . twists in the plot and, as always, a charming ending.'

The world of investing normally sees experts telling us the 'right' way to manage our money. How often do these experts pull back the curtain and tell us how they invest their own money? Never. How I Invest My Money changes that. In this unprecedented collection, 25 financial experts share how they navigate markets with their own capital. In this honest rendering of how they invest, save, spend, give, and borrow, this group of portfolio managers, financial advisors, venture capitalists and other experts detail the 'how' and the 'why' of their investments. They share stories about their childhood, their families, the struggles they face and the aspirations they hold. Sometimes raw, always revealing, these stories detail the indelible relationship between our money and our values. Taken as a whole, these essays powerfully demonstrate that there is no single 'right' way to save, spend, and invest. We see a kaleidoscope of perspectives on stocks, bonds, real assets, funds, charity, and other means of achieving the life one desires. With engaging illustrations throughout by Carl Richards, How I Invest My Money inspires readers to think creatively about their financial decisions and how money figures in the broader quest for a contented life.

Praise for THE ELEMENTS OF INVESTING "A common misperception is that successful investing requires a ton of money, a complicated portfolio, or a detailed understanding of where the markets are headed next. The truth is, sometimes the simplest approach is the toughest to beat. Charley Ellis and Burt Malkiel do a masterful job in The Elements of Investing of laying out clear, simple rules that any investor can follow to grow their wealth over time." —TIM BUCKLEY, Vanguard Chairman & CEO "These noted authors have distilled all you need to know about investing into a very small package. The best time to read this book is when you turn eighteen (or maybe thirteen) and every year thereafter." —HARRY MARKOWITZ, Nobel Laureate in Economics 1990 "Struggling to find money to save? Befuddled by the bewildering array of investment choices? As you venture into the financial markets for the first time, it's helpful to have a trusted guide—and, in Charley Ellis and Burt Malkiel, you have two of the finest." —JONATHAN CLEMENTS, author of The Little Book of Main Street Money "No one knows more about investing than Charley Ellis and Burt Malkiel, and no one has written a better investment guide.

Buy good companies. Don’t overpay. Do nothing. Some people love to make successful investing seem more complicated than it really is. In this anthology of essays and letters written between 2010–20, leading fund manager Terry Smith delights in debunking the many myths of investing – and making the case for simply buying the best companies in the world. These are businesses that generate serious amounts of cash and know what to do with it. The result is a powerful compounding of returns that is almost impossible to beat. Even better, they aren’t going anywhere. Most have survived the Great Depression and two world wars. With his trademark razor-sharp wit, Smith not only reveals what these high-quality companies really look like and where to find them (as well as how to discover impostors), but also: - why you should avoid companies that abuse the English language - how most share buybacks actually destroy value - what investors can learn from the Tour de France - why ETFs are much riskier than most realise - how ESG investors often end up with investments that are far from green or ethical - his ten golden rules for investment - and much, much more. Backed up by the analytical rigour that made his name with the cult classic, Accounting for Growth (1992), the result is a hugely enjoyable and eye-opening tour through some of the most important topics in the world of investing – as well as a treasure trove of practical insights on how to make your money work for you. No investor’s bookshelf is complete without it.

Human beings are primates, and primates are political animals. Our brains, therefore, are designed not just to hunt and gather, but also to help us get ahead socially, often via deception and self-deception. But while we may be self-interested schemers, we benefit by pretending otherwise. The less we know about our own ugly motives, the better - and thus we don't like to talk or even think about the extent of our selfishness. This is "the elephant in the brain." Such an introspective taboo makes it hard for us to think clearly about our nature and the explanations for our behavior. The aim of this book, then, is to confront our hidden motives directly - to track down the darker, unexamined corners of our psyches and blast them with floodlights. Then, once everything is clearly visible, we can work to better understand ourselves: Why do we laugh? Why are artists sexy? Why do we brag about travel? Why do we prefer to speak rather than listen? Our unconscious motives drive more than just our private behavior; they also infect our venerated social institutions such as Art, School, Charity, Medicine, Politics, and Religion. In fact, these institutions are in many ways designed to accommodate our hidden motives, to serve covert agendas alongside their "official" ones. The existence of big hidden motives can upend the usual political debates, leading one to question the legitimacy of these social institutions, and of standard policies designed to favor or discourage them. You won't see yourself - or the world - the same after confronting the elephant in the brain.

How many of us follow the same advice our grandparents followed: contribute whatever we can to our 401(k) and hope it’s enough when the time comes to retire? Millions of Americans did just that and in 2008, after years of saving the conventional way, the market crashed and took their entire nest egg, seemingly overnight. Josh Jalinski, host of the popular Financial Quarterback™ radio program, offers his proven system for a SWAN (sleep-well-at-night) retirement that works for people in all stages of their careers. Retirement Reality Check challenges fifty years of conventional retirement planning with fresh strategies tailored to today’s volatile economic climate: The old warhorse 401(k) is great but nowhere near enough for most retirees and definitely not reliable. It’s okay to spend some of your IRA money before you are 70½. You can spend a lot more than 4 percent a year of your savings when you retire. Don’t shun annuities and whole life insurance policies; use the right ones and use them cleverly. Retirement should be a time to enjoy family, friends, and travel, without worrying about your financial security. Josh Jalinski shows you how to maximize your retirement spending, while still having something to leave behind to your loved ones and favorite causes. It’s time create a new paradigm, one that will stand up against market volatility and be there when it’s time to enjoy the years you worked so hard for. Do you have enough saved to enjoy your retirement? Will you be able to fund your bucket list? Are you prepared to for the tax increases and medical bills that come with retirement? In this practical new guide, Jalinski guides you through his proven system for planning for a secure retirement that lets you enjoy your money, including: Tax-saving strategies to maximize the amount of money you have available to spend on experiences, travel, and expenses Understanding the right investment mix, depending on your individual circumstances How saving cash and different life insurance options help you weather volatility and ensure you can pass wealth on to family members

“Heartfelt and ever-endearing—equal parts information and inspiration. This is a book to keep by your bedside and return to often.”—Amy Dickinson, nationally syndicated advice columnist "Ask Amy" More than one thousand extraordinary Americans share their stories and the wisdom they have gained on living, loving, and finding happiness. After a chance encounter with an extraordinary ninety-year-old woman, renowned gerontologist Karl Pillemer began to wonder what older people know about life that the rest of us don't. His quest led him to interview more than one thousand Americans over the age of sixty-five to seek their counsel on all the big issues: children, marriage, money, career, aging. Their moving stories and uncompromisingly honest answers often surprised him. And he found that he consistently heard advice that pointed to these thirty lessons for living. Here he weaves their personal recollections of difficulties overcome and lives well lived into a timeless book filled with the hard-won advice these older Americans wish someone had given them when they were young. Like This I Believe, StoryCorps's Listening Is an Act of Love, and Tuesdays with Morrie, 30 Lessons for Living is a book to keep and to give. Offering clear advice toward a more fulfilling life, it is as useful as it is inspiring.

Everyone is different. We all have different backgrounds. We grew up in different parts of the country (or in different countries), different neighborhoods within our cities, went to different schools, and had different friends. Our parents raised us differently. We have different intelligence levels, different physical abilities, and were raised in - and currently live in - different socioeconomic situations. Of course people from different backgrounds will grow up to value different things. That sounds obvious, but it’s not. We tend to try to replicate what others are doing. We do this knowing they are different from us. Why? In Your Money, Your Values, and Your Life, financial therapist and life planner Derek Hagen teaches you why people with such varying backgrounds find themselves chasing the same things. Gain the confidence to ignore the Joneses. Learn to align your money and your life with what’s important to you.

가장 크게 성공한 투자자 vs. 가장 크게 파산한 투자자 무엇이 이 둘의 운명을 갈랐는가 『돈의 심리학』은 월스트리트저널에서 10년 넘게 금융과 투자에 대한 글을 써온 칼럼니스트이자 콜라보레이티브 펀드 파트너로 활동중인 모건 하우절의 첫 책이다. 총 20개 스토리로 구성되어 있다. ‘스토리텔링의 천재’ ‘소설가의 기술을 가진 금융 작가’라는 별명답게 모건 하우절이 들려주는 20개의 투자 스토리는 대단히 매력적이다. 하나하나 실화와 실증에 바탕을 두되 이야기의 재미와 투자의 교훈을 빠짐없이 담아냈다. 제2차 세계대전 당시 독일의 탱크 부대 이야기, 마이크로소프트 창업에 관한 빌 게이츠의 고백, LA에서 주차 대행 아르바이트를 하던 시절 페라리에 얽힌 에피소드, 워런 버핏의 놀라운 수익률의 비밀까지 다양한 이야기를 흥미롭게 전개하여 읽는 이들을 단번에 사로잡는다. 또한 그 끝에는 하나같이 감탄을 부르는 탁월한 통찰을 담고 있다. 부에 관한 문제는 결국 학력, 지능, 노력과 직접적 관련이 없으며 돈에 관한 인간의 편향, 심리, 다시 말해 ‘돈의 심리학’과 밀접한 관련이 있음을 깨닫게 한다.

»Geld hat viel mehr mit Psychologie zu tun als mit Finanzen.« Wenn es um Geld geht, glauben wir, dass wir bestimmte Fakten, Regeln und Gesetzmäßigkeiten kennen müssen. Wir gehen davon aus, die Welt der Finanzen sei die Welt der Mathematik, in der Daten und Formeln einem exakt sagen, wie man sich verhalten soll – und die Menschen würden sich dann danach richten. Dabei ist das Gegenteil der Fall: In der realen Welt treffen Menschen ihre finanziellen Entscheidungen nicht aufgrund einer Tabellenkalkulation. Sie treffen sie beim Abendessen oder während eines Meetings, wo die persönliche Geschichte, der individuelle Blick auf die Welt, das eigene Ego und weitere krude Einflüsse zusammentreffen. Es geht also in erster Linie um Psychologie, um Emotionen und Grauzonen. Anhand von 20 Kurzgeschichten vermittelt der preisgekrönte Autor Morgan Housel anschaulich, dass bei Geldthemen nicht entscheidend ist, über wie viel theoretisches Wissen jemand verfügt, sondern wie er sich in einer Stresssituation verhält. »Eines der besten und originellsten Finanzbücher seit Jahren.« Jason Zweig, The Wall Street Journal »Morgan Housel ist einer der hellsten neuen Sterne am Finanzhimmel. Er ist für jeden zugänglich, der mehr über die Psychologie des Geldes erfahren möchte. Ich kann dieses Buch uneingeschränkt empfehlen.« James P.
