It’s time for the first book recommendation of the year. This months book is a bit different to my normal suggestions and came highly recommended to me from a friend who works in finance. I often get asked for recommendations about improving trading psychology and I think this book does a good job of making you realise the power of your own mind and how it can work for (and against) you.
This months book recommendation is Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahnemman.
Instead of the normal books relating to trading the financial markets or finance related non-fiction, I am going to recommend an entirely different style of book for this months book club recommendation.
Thinking, fast and slow is a philosophical book written by Nobel prize winning economist and it explains the theories behind why we behave like we do. It is a real eye opener and a fascinating read because it shows you how your own mind tricks you on a regular basis.
Forget about economic, this book explains the secrets to behavioural economics and there are loads of lessons to be learnt form this book. If you are a fan of the classic book Freakonomics then you will like Thinking, fast and slow by Daniel Kahneman.
It’s not an easy read and you won’t fly through it in a day or a week sat on the beach. However, I can guarantee you will learn something new about yourself form reading this book!
