    I'm a lawyer and mediator. I represent businesses in disputes with their insurers and in other complex litigation. I also assist machinery companies and manufacturers (primarily international) with equipment sales, non-disclosure agreements, and business issues. I also mediate commercial disputes.

    "I'd Heard a Lot of this Before, But ..."

    If you have studied human behavior, there is a lot in here that you already know. The author does a really good job of applying it to investing, and showing how you can stop being your own worst enemy.

    "Intryguing, funny, suprisignly good."

    To be honest, I wasn't expecting anything much from the book. Was I positevly suprised once listened to it for the first time.
    Although it is just 5 hours read, I enjoyed it really a lot. There are several quizes along the way which made me laugh.

    Overall, if you look for a easy implementaion and introduction of behavioral psyhology, this is a really good book to start with.

    "Good book about the psychology in investing"
    Where does The Little Book of Behavioral Investing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's a very good and easy listening experience. There's no real epiphany here but sound logic provided with research to back it up, which makes it a great audiobook to listen to.

    "Great book for the beginner and more experienced "

    No matter if you have never listened to a book on behavioral finance or if you have listened/read quite a few, this book is great. I fall in the latter category, but still found it a great book. Firstly it gives a good overview of the field, secondly it's well structured and a pleasure to listen to.

    "Learn how to combat your biggest challenge: You"
    What did you love best about The Little Book of Behavioral Investing?

    It takes principles of behavioral psychology (such as cognitive biases and distortions) and applies it to investments. How can we learn about our natural thought processes to improve our investments, and prevent ourselves from sabotaging our own results. This might be the best book of the Little Book series for investors... I highly recommend it.

    "Hard to follow narration"

    The narration is very difficult to follow. It is like a stutter. Needs to be redone.
