    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"
    "The most myopic and deluded book of the year"
    Overall

    This book is not only tasteless and narrow minded but is also extremely ill founded and moderately illogical. The primary good that can be said of it is that the writer has a knack for aggrandizing and painting a vivid picture even if it is based on misinformation. I will concede that there are a few well founded points but it is taxing to have to wade through so much material to glean so little. My greatest regret is that I supported his attempts though my purchase of this book. It has been both a waste of time and money.
