Synopses & Reviews
"This short and entertaining book packs a vast amount of serious information about your brain, about your mind, and about your money. You will learn a lot when you read it for the first time and you will probably want to read it again to learn some more."
-- Daniel Kahneman, professor of psychology, Princeton University, and winner of the 2002 Nobel Prize in Economics
"Jason Zweig is one of the world's experts on the investing process. He has written the best book yet on the emerging science of neuroeconomics. Buy it, read it, and become a more thoughtful, and a better, investor."
-- Bill Miller, Chairman and Chief Investment Officer, Legg Mason Capital Management
"As advertised, this book is about your brain, but yours is not the only brain in this book. Lucky for you, that other brain is Jason Zweig's, and what a brilliant, fascinating, illuminating, powerful, and unique device that is. Listen to Zweig carefully. I have read a zillion books on investing, and none of them comes close to what he has so generously bestowed upon us here."
-- Peter L. Bernstein, author of Against the Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk
"Jason Zweig knows your financial demons, where they live, why they're making you poor, and how you can beat them. You owe it to yourself, your future, and your heirs to read Your Money and Your Brain."
-- William Bernstein, associate clinical professor of neurology, Oregon Health and Science University; cofounder, Efficient Frontier Advisors; and author of The Four Pillars of Investing
