I did enjoy this book, and it highlighted for me some neat tricks to stopping myself from spending money, but this was a REALLY research heavy book I think most people are ok with being told a fact, and having it backed up by one or two reference This read like a dissertation where some poor student was proving that the earth was flat Ms Hammond, we get it, you do not need to spend PAGES proving a relatively simple point that MOST people would get behind with one research paper supporting it As

The psychology of money is rapidly become an important area of research While economists have tended to assume that we make rational decisions with our money, we re rapidly becoming aware that we really don t Mind Over Money is a compilation of the research on the psychology of money which is its greatest weakness, as well as its greatest strength Almost every major research project on the subject is summarized in this book, often in only a few paragraphs, before jumping into the next project In many cases there is some very interesting information For example, I learned about Hedonic adaptation We get used to our new situation, good or bad People who won millions in the lottery are statistically not much happier than people who were paralyzed in mid life Riches don t equal happiness.Retrieval inhibition It s hard to retrieve information if you re overly focused on it The exsample Hammond gives If I ask you to name all 50 states of the U.S from memory, you ll do a better job if I don t start you off by giving you Idaho and Alaska, because you ll be focused on Idaho and Alaska, and have a harder time retrieving the others That s why poor people make worse financial decisions than rich people they re focused on their money problems.All fascinating But there are times when the

First Impression I always enjoy a good piece about money, most of us love money, all of us use it as a tool to achieve what we want in life Claudia puts together a collection of insights into the psychology of money with the intention of teaching us how achieve mind over money Thank you to Net Galley for sending this book to me in exchange for an honest review.Summary Of The Book Come and join Claudia Hammond on a journey through the rough psychological landscape that is our relationship with money CH wants to show us what is going on behind the scenes when we interact with money, unravelling the relationship between our money and our minds.First we begin with controversy, a couple of famous people setting fire to a million pounds in cash for an artistic stunt Outrage follows as that money could have been used for good, to feed the poor, bought housing or a million other things The money represents opportunities, it represents effort and it represents many other emotions and opinions that we as people have This is the overall theme of this material and it brings to light many habits and behaviours that we involve ourselves in every day without thinking properly CH talks through all aspects of our feelings and interactions with cold hard dosh How we feel about cash over c
This book has snippets of information that are interesting and useful but it weaves a poor narrative and required effort to get through it In particular, the final chapter felt like the author had given up and just threw a hastily gathered list together.A few of the interesting points People create different mental accounts for spending money e.g holiday account e.t.c These can have a powerful influence over how we spend money For sales this probably means that a product or service should be aligned with the most spendthrift probably profit making mental account that a buyer has in mind Mental account of having a car when living in a city versus taking taxis and hiring cars which feel like of a loss This means we are overly influenced by owning things even if the asset maintenance costs are prohibitive Loss aversion is prevalent in people s attitudes to money Lots of quotes related to Kahneman s work but also a theory that for cavemen to lose their winter stores was critical than gaining extr
This book was definitely worth the read I have an interest in behavioral economics but I am not a specialist, so I was familiar with a number of the topics discussed and the observations made by the author, but the author also covered some topics with which I was not familiar that I found very interesting A good example of this was the discussion of poverty and its likely impact an individual s approach to making economic decisions I think I will always remember the author s suggestion not to pick the same lottery number every time you play the lottery While not mentioned in the book, I have heard of a real life situation
An excellent, informative, entertaining and thought provoking read, this really has made me reevaluate the way I think about money Referencing numerous medical and psychological studies, the author looks at how we become attached to money , both as a concept and in its physical form, from a very young age, how we can let it motivate us, and surprisingly how it can demotivate us too Though relatively short, the author packs in a lot of information, in an easily digestible user friendly form and looks at the psychology of things like spending and saving patterns, gambling, sales and pricing and at the en
I received this book thanks to a Goodreads giveaway.At first I found the subject matter interesting, but at a certain point, I found it harder and harder to stay interested Maybe I just had an overload of information. There are many psychological experiments that we could already know about Delayed gratification , this seems to be a big component of being able to be successful in the future According to some researches, they testes on kids and observed for few decades to see the kids performance on study and career, those who have patience to wait in order to get bigger reward
