About the Author
The author, a psychiatrist, talks about how human nature intersects with the investment world. Narrated with over-the-top gravitas start to finish, the program warns the listener to keep a close eye on emotion and to do the homework required to understand the many variables in the market. The author’s knowledge of technical trading methods is also outstanding, and he is most effective when blending this expertise with his insights about human nature. Presenting the big picture without over-simplifying, he helps serious students stand back from the fray when making investment decisions. This title is an outstanding integration of the technical language of economics and the language of emotion familiar to a broader range of listeners.
