In contrast to old-school assumptions of cool-headed rationality, the new behavioral school embraces hot-blooded human irrationality as a core feature of both individuals and financial markets. The Nobel Prize in Economics was awarded to scholars of this new scientific approach to irrationality.

In Mean Markets and Lizard Brains , Terry Burnham, an economist who has a proven ability to translate complex topics into everyday language, reveals the biological causes of irrationality. The human brain contains ancient structures that exert powerful and often unconscious influences on behavior. This "lizard brain" may have helped our ancestors eat and reproduce, but it wreaks havoc with our finances. Going far beyond cataloguing our financial foibles, Dr. Burnham applies this novel approach to all of today's most important financial topics: This broad and scholarly investigation provides an in-depth look at why manias, panics, and crashes happen, and why people are built to want to buy at irrationally high prices and sell at irrationally low prices.

Most importantly, by incorporating the new science of irrationality, readers can position themselves to profit from financial markets that often seem downright mean. Mean Markets and Lizard Brains skillfully identifies the craziness that is part of human nature, helps us see it in ourselves, and then shows us how to profit from a world that doesn't always make sense.

I was expecting much more but this book, losing it's timeliness quickly, is a general book about investing with a splash of behavioral economics. That means, its a good book for a general investor or a new person to the investment world, but I was expecting more.

Sadly, when you make "bold" predictions, and I guess the author felt he needed to, your book will stand on its own against history. Well, the book got the real estate market really wrong.


Not that its fair to pick on him for being really wrong on real estate but with the crash in a lot of the theories of the book went down the tube too. Don't let the funny sounding title turn you away Amateur investors are constantly screwing up their portfolios by routinely buying high and selling low with every bull and bear market and yet they expect a different result each time.

This is one of the very few books out there that can actually make you a superior investor by simply educating you to the numerous behavioral blunders that the "herd" makes time and time again. Volatility creates enormous opportunities for making market beating gains routinely but you must understand and avoid the typical pitfalls of the clueless masses.

One person found this helpful. A great read; appeals to the counter-intuitive insights of successful investors and explains a lot of human nature and how destructive it can be from an investment standpoint.

I found his advice at the end however strange and incorrect. He argues against adding to a position when it goes down in price. I have added to positions and this I have found to be very effective. For similar reasons, he argues against dollar cost averaging, which I have also found to be profitable. The reasons both of these strategies can be useful are that they are counter intuitive, so his opposition to these strategies seems out of place with the rest of the book.

Also, in both these instances, I find his justification not to be persuasive. The author is clearly a smart guy who writes well. I would have given the book 5 stars if it were not for those 2 issues. I purchased the book on Amazon. I found my time well spent reading this book. For would be readers - it seemed to me that there really were two parts to this book: An investigation of irrational economic decisions by investors with roots in our evolutionary history.

And there are numerous references to modern studies that help debunk some of the myths of investing and finance. I particularly enjoyed learning about 'survivorship-bias'. And finally, loved the sense of humor!
