The Psychology of Money
- Timeless Lessons on Wealth, Greed, and Happiness
- Written by: Morgan Housel
- Narrated by: Chris Hill
- Length: 5 hrs and 48 mins
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.

I only wish I had read this book two decades before...though that would still not guarantee a different outcome for men than they are destined to !!
Nonetheless, this book captures the essence of investment , returns, savings ; most of the important things that encapsulates the understanding of money - not how you earn it, but how to value , preserve and grow your money. Excellent narratives to help one learn to strike a balance between getting wealthier and making the most of what life has to offer.
Superb read...Extremely relevant in current times and highly recommended for everyone.
