    Collectively, people think and act in ways that are different from how they think and act as individuals. Understanding these differences, says William (Bill) Bonner, a longtime maverick observer of the financial world and the vagaries of the investing public, is vital to preserving your wealth and personal dignity. Now Bonner and co-author Lila Rajiva show groupthink at work in an improbable array of instances throughout history and reveal why swimming against the current pays.

    morton says: "Great, Witty, Thought Provoking Audio"
    "Ramblingly Vitriolic"
    Overall

    This book was a complete waste. It's like listening to a "professional" blogger going off against other bloggers -- professional and otherwise -- using the Wikipedia for proof. They use far too many words for the few points that they try to make and they play fast and loose with their credibility (very obviously starting with the lemmings). But what's worst about this book -- which I had hoped would be depressing in an amusing and interesting way -- is that it's depressing in a despairing way that laments the human condition before wallowing in it for another blathering anti-punditry chapter.
