More Than You Know: Finding Financial Wisdom in Unconventional Places

Abstract:
How can an investor learn from poker experts David Slansky and Puggy Pearson? What does guppy mate selection tell us about stock market booms? Do Tupperware parties have anything to tell us about how we select stocks? These are just some of the questions Michael Mauboussin considers in More Than You Know. Illustrating his points with lessons drawn from casino gambling, horse racing, psychology, evolutionary biology, and other activities and disciplines, Mauboussin shows how attention to process, an understanding of the psychology of decision making, and an even temperament produce the best long-term financial results for investors.
