From the New York Times best-selling author of the book named the best investment book of 2017 comes The Behavioral Investor, an applied look at how psychology ought to inform the art and science of investment management. In The Behavioral Investor, psychologist and asset manager Dr. Daniel Crosby examines the sociological, neurological, and psychological factors that influence our investment decisions and sets forth practical solutions for improving both returns and behavior. Listeners will be treated to the most comprehensive examination of investor behavior to date and will leave with concrete solutions for refining decision-making processes, increasing self-awareness, and constraining the fatal flaws to which most investors are prone. The Behavioral Investor takes a sweeping tour of human nature before arriving at the specifics of portfolio construction, rooted in the belief that it is only as we come to a deep understanding of ´´why” that we are left with any clue as to ´´how” we ought to invest. The book is comprised of three parts, which are as follows: Part One - An explication of the sociological, neurological, and physiological impediments to sound investment decision-making. Listners will leave with an improved understanding of how externalities impact choices in nearly imperceptible ways and begin to understand the impact of these pressures on investment selection.Part Two - Coverage of the four primary psychological tendencies that impact investment behavior. Although human behavior is undoubtedly complex, in an investment context our choices are largely driven by one of the four factors discussed herein. Listeners will emerge with an improved understanding of their own behavior, increased humility, and a lens through which to vet decisions of all types. Part Three - Illuminates the ´´so what” of Parts One and Two and provides a framework for managing wealth in a manner consi 1. Language: English. Narrator: Matthew R. Doyle.

It´s the ultimate road trip. Legendary investor Jim Rogers and his fiancee travel to 116 countries in a custom-built, four-wheel-drive, bright yellow Mercedes. Over three years, they make their way through war zones, are guarded by military convoys, observe a 50-million-person pilgrimage, eat disgusting food, put the car on barges for transport between countries, and have their lives threatened at every turn. As well as describing his adventures, Rogers has plenty to say about the economies and roads he encounters on his journey. (Naturally, he´s driven on the best roads and the worst.) With his keen financial acumen, he picks out those countries with the highest prospective economic success and which ones are headed for disaster. All in all, a wonderful trip. 1. Language: English.

Find out About the Psychology of Investing in a Fraction of the Time It Takes to Read the Actual Book! This book announces early on that its purpose is to help an average person adopt and carry out an investment policy. Rather than focusing on analyzing securities, the book devotes itself to explaining investment principles and attitudes. Its history of republication and new editions certainly secures its place as a worthwhile listen for any serious investor. The fourth edition´s preface by Warren Buffett, in which he claims that this is the best investment book he has read, does not hurt either. In the introduction Benjamin Graham explains that the book presents principles for intelligent investing while warning that there are no foolproof ways to make money. He names two types of investors: the defensive and the enterprising. The defensive investor is passive; his chief purpose is to avoid making serious mistakes or losses while also putting in less effort and making less frequent decisions. The enterprising investor is active or even aggressive; he is more than willing to devote time and energy to selecting securities that are stable and more attractive than average. Graham explains that the enterprising investor may expect better returns for his extra effort over the course of a few decades, but Graham doubts that substantial gain is guaranteed for that investor. He also details examples of how investment professionals, the experts, can and have been wrong. For instance, many investment companies favored airline stocks because they foresaw the number of travelers rising; the premise for their faith in these stocks was true - the number of frequent fliers did rise. However, the airlines themselves struggled to be profitable. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Paul Dandridge. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/057693/bk_acx0_057693_sample.mp3.

We are wired to fail with money and investing. Do you have $1 on you? Please reach for your wallet. Take out a one-dollar bill. Do you have it? Look at it, hold it up, put it in front of you. Now imagine you save $1 each month (which few do). Imagine that your $1 earns seven percent annually on average over 30 years. At the end of the 30 years you will have almost $1,200. Needless to say, if you put away $1,000 each month, you´d have almost $1.2 million in 30 years. It´s secondary if you are just starting your family fortune - or if you already have it and want to keep it and grow it. If you do nothing with that dollar, inflation will eat away at its value. It will be worth less than two quarters in 25 years and less than a single quarter in 50 years and a nickel in 100 years. Can you afford to do nothing? Do I have your attention? Most books misinform, or intimidate, and often are not backed by real life experience. This book is a one of a kind, comprehensive, straightforward, and easy to follow guide to investing. It´s written by an experienced investor trained in the value investing, Buffett-Graham school of thought. Like no other book, it covers both the intellectual and emotional discipline needed to be a successful investor. It provides the proper philosophy, shows the path, and emphasizes the principles required to keep and grow your wealth over a lifetime. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bogumil K. Baranowski.
