Based on many years experience, James Montier provides practical yet rigorous coverage of this emerging science, providing insights into the irrational nature of investment decisions. Behavioural Finance: Insights into Irrational Minds and Markets is essential reading for fund managers, strategists, asset allocators, portfolio constructors, corporate financiers and analysts. It is also suitable for MBAs and students studying finance and investment management.

IMHO, this book can serve as a recap for advanced traders who understand well basic financial concepts including Efficient Market Hypothesis and it's offsprings like CAPM, and can read statistics and essays with ease. For novices, "Beyond Greed and Fear: Understanding Behavioral Finance and the Psychology of Investing" by Hersh Shefrin and "The psychology of Finance by Lars Tvede" should be better choices.
p.s. The conclusions in the end of each chapter are well written, I must add. However, I cant say there are significant correlation between individual chapters.
For anyone who is a student of finance and wants practical, research proven information, this is the book for you!
