5.0 out of 5 stars Good Read, August 14, 2009
This review is from: Snap Judgment: When to Trust Your Instincts, When to Ignore Them, and How to Avoid Making Big Mistakes with Your Money (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The author's purpose is to show us how our bad decision making can lead us into trouble such as gambling, and using psychology for financial decisions

Most interesting are the stories he tells and one which is really remarkable was that

most people were willing to take a sure $500 instead of a 15% chance at making a $1 million. How people come to making their judgement calls is amazing

He talks about the pitfalls like overconfidence, that can lead to leads to things like excessive risk-taking,

Overall, I liked the book.it was easy to read and examples the author uses are entertaining and easy to understand Plus one chapter does not build on the previous ones so you can pretty much open the book and begin reading
