Protect and grow your finances with help from this definitive and practical guide to behavioral economics—revised and updated to reflect new economic realities. In their fascinating investigation of the ways we handle money, Gary Belsky and Thomas Gilovich reveal the psychological forces—the patterns of thinking and decision making—behind seemingly irrational behavior. They explain why so many otherwise savvy people make foolish financial choices: why investors are too quick to sell winning stocks and too slow to sell losing shares, why home sellers leave money on the table and home buyers don’t get the biggest bang for their buck, why borrowers pay too much credit card interest and savers can’t sock away as much as they’d like, and why so many of us can’t control our spending. Focusing on the decisions we make every day, Belsky and Gilovich provide invaluable guidance for avoiding the financial faux pas that can cost thousands of dollars each year. Filled with fresh insight; practical advice; and lively, illustrative anecdotes, this book gives you the tools you need to harness the powerful science of behavioral economics in any financial environment.

Big Science Secrets Lies And Mistakes

This book is a must read for those people who want to know the actual truth about the universe, and in particular those who think that most of the popular scientific theories being passed off on the public are far removed from the truth. This book will shake the foundations of science, and reshape the official explanations about most of what we know. Huntington has a special talent for finding shockingly simple truths. He starts by explaining that all matter is made of material light particles (including anti-matter and all subatomic particles), shows why the archaic electromagnetic theory of light is false, disproves the expanding universe theory with a few simple pictures, describes the possibility of neuron reading and writing, that a neutron is probably just a hydrogen atom, and many more important science truths. But beyond the shockingly simple scientific truths are many shockingly simple but unheard of social ideas like full and constant democracy, total freedom of all information, and focusing mainly on stopping violence. Huntington is the first person in the history of Earth to tell the public the truth about our future as a star cluster, that globular clusters are the result of the natural selection of highly adapted organisms, that humans will use atomic transmutation to convert trash into air and water, that humans will reach the center of Earth, and that probably all the matter of the planets will ultimately be consumed, among many other ideas. It sounds like a far-fetched grandiose claim, but if not this book, then these ideas Huntington is talking about are clearly going to be iconic and epochal, and are certainly going to change the paradigm of science for the public.

Appetite For Self Destruction

For the first time, Appetite for Self-Destruction recounts the epic story of the precipitous rise and fall of the recording industry over the past three decades, when the incredible success of the CD turned the music business into one of the most glamorous, high-profile industries in the world -- and the advent of file sharing brought it to its knees. In a comprehensive, fast-paced account full of larger-than-life personalities, Rolling Stone contributing editor Steve Knopper shows that, after the incredible wealth and excess of the '80s and '90s, Sony, Warner, and the other big players brought about their own downfall through years of denial and bad decisions in the face of dramatic advances in technology. Big Music has been asleep at the wheel ever since Napster revolutionized the way music was distributed in the 1990s. Now, because powerful people like Doug Morris and Tommy Mottola failed to recognize the incredible potential of file-sharing technology, the labels are in danger of becoming completely obsolete. Knopper, who has been writing about the industry for more than ten years, has unparalleled access to those intimately involved in the music world's highs and lows. Based on interviews with more than two hundred music industry sources -- from Warner Music chairman Edgar Bronfman Jr. to renegade Napster creator Shawn Fanning -- Knopper is the first to offer such a detailed and sweeping contemporary history of the industry's wild ride through the past three decades. From the birth of the compact disc, through the explosion of CD sales in the '80s and '90s, the emergence of Napster, and the secret talks that led to iTunes, to the current collapse of the industry as CD sales plummet, Knopper takes us inside the boardrooms, recording studios, private estates, garage computer labs, company jets, corporate infighting, and secret deals of the big names and behind-the-scenes players who made it all happen. With unforgettable portraits of the music world's mighty and formerly mighty; detailed accounts of both brilliant and stupid ideas brought to fruition or left on the cutting-room floor; the dish on backroom schemes, negotiations, and brawls; and several previously unreported stories, Appetite for Self-Destruction is a riveting, informative, and highly entertaining read. It offers a broad perspective on the current state of Big Music, how it got into these dire straits, and where it's going from here -- and a cautionary tale for the digital age.
