The scenes when we interact with money unravelling the relationship between our money and our mindsFirst we begin with controversy a couple of famous people setting fire to a million pounds in cash for an artistic stunt Outrage follows as that money could have been used for good to feed the poor bought housing or a million other things The money represents opportunities it represents effort and it represents many other emotions and opinions that we as people have This is the overall theme of this material and it brings to light many habits and behaviours that we involve ourselves in every day without thinking properly CH talks through all aspects of our feelings and interactions with cold hard dosh How we feel about cash over credit How we treat new fresh money better than old tatty notes How we develop a relationship with money as children The changing of currency within nations How the rich can be very mean and charity is a complex art form Mind Over Money displays all of the psychological philosophical economical and existential elements that come with using money as a tool in lifeCH covers over 200 psychologicalbehavioural experiments in this book tool in lifeCH covers over 200 psychologicalbehavioural experiments in this book is a thorough and engaging piece of Non Fiction and if you do not really grasp why we behave like we do around money then this is a book you should definitely add to your reading listMy ReviewI enjoy the subject of money it is a psychological buffet of a subject and we humans can behave really badly when it comes to money It is true that we also behave well with money but people often relate to the darker side of cash and there is plenty of that hereFirst off the format of this book was my favourite thing about it Clear cut chapters with a helpful summary displayed ahead of each one The same descriptions are included on the contents page and it really helps give your mind a head start in comprehending this book nicely In terms of the content I found that CH was trying to make small neat little points in a uick fire pattern instead of building up to a big revelation or insight That style made it easier to finish but also left my brain hungry for a

big aha moment 
AHA moment I never gotIf you read plenty of psychology books then I say say you should pass on this There are big chunks of the book that feature in some way or another across similar titles in its field and I don t feel CH did much to revitalise the genre If you have no nowledge of psychology or how money influences your actions then by all means tuck in It is not a terrible effort but it is mainly a collection of scientific research with the thoughts and opinions of a popular entertainer threaded throughout This leaves the seasoned psychology readers with a deflated sense of wasted time the amusing bits are not that amusing and sometimes the author can get slightly off topic That said CH is not claiming to be a expert in the field of money this is of a grand news piece on the subject of us and moneyOverall this is a decent read it does not take itself too seriously its not ground breaking but if your new to the subject then its a good window into how psychologists work to determine human behaviour in an unbiased environment it can be near impossible CH is a competent writer and host on this expedition through our greedy minds but the banter between research for me was a bit cringe worthy at times510Join Us OnTwitterFacebook UKUSGoodreadsBookbridgrNet GalleyAnd of course wwwalwaystrustinbooksblogspotcouk.

De racht van het geldI received this book thanks to a Goodreads giveawayAt first I found the subject matter interesting but at a certain point I found it harder and harder to stay interested Maybe I just had an overload of information This book has snippets of information that are interesting and useful but it weaves a poor narrative and reuired effort to get through it In particular the final chapter felt like the author had given up and just threw a hastily gathered list togetherA few of the interesting points People create different mental accounts for spending money eg holiday account etc These can have a powerful influence over how we spend money For sales this probably means that a product or service should be aligned with the most spendthrift probably profit making mental account that a buyer has in mind Mental account of having a car when living in a city versus taking taxis and hiring cars which feel like of a loss This means we are overly influenced by owning things even if the asset maintenance costs are prohibitive Loss aversion is prevalent in people s attitudes to money Lots of uotes related to Kahneman s work but also a theory that for cavemen to lose their winter stores was critical than gaining extra winter stores hence our preference for loss aversion Price context has a big factor on finding value our preference for loss aversion Price context has a big factor on finding value include buying a car and not haggling over the cost of a tank of fuel when we would research the difference in flight prices for hours Anchoring effects on salaries impact people s motivation If they see their peers or their friends on money they will feel bad if they don t get an increase in salary Introducing payment for services means that people immediately begrudge providing the same services for free People may even begrudge providing the services at all as it makes them consider the monetary value of the services when previously they hadn t done this and they may then feel undervalued Pocket money shouldn t be made contingent on completing tasks as this make children less likely to volunteer altruistically The richer the person the benefit they will get by spending their money on experiences rather than things The psychology of money is rapidly become an important area of research While economists have tended to assume that we make rational decisions with our money we re rapidly becoming aware that we really don t Mind Over Money is a compilation of the research on the psychology of money which is its greatest weakness as well as its greatest strength Almost every major research project on the subject is summarized in this book often in only a few paragraphs before jumping into the next project In many cases there is some
very interesting information 
interesting information example I learned about Hedonic adaptation We get used to our new situation good or bad People who won millions in the lottery are statistically not much happier than people who were paralyzed in mid life Riches don t eual happinessRetrieval inhibition It s hard to retrieve information if you re overly focused on it The exsample Hammond gives If I ask you to name all 50 states of the US from memory you ll do a better job if I don t start you off by giving you Idaho and Alaska because you ll be focused on Idaho and Alaska and have a harder time retrieving the others That s why poor people make worse financial decisions than rich people they re focused on their money problemsAll fascinating But there are times when the information overload is tough to. The acclaimed author of Time Warped tackles the very latest research in the fields of neuroscience psychology and biology to provide a fresh fascinating and thought provoking look at our relationship with money perfect for fans of Dan Ariely and FreakonomicsWe now we need money and we often want of it but we don’t always think about the way it affects our minds and our emotions skews our percept. Deal with For example In one of the later chapters where Hammond discusses charitable giving I was left in uandary Are rich people generous than poor people Less generous Is the research unclear at this point I left the chapter confused than when I startedBut overall this is a book that s worth your time There are a number of psychological principles that if you re aware of them can help you be a better saver and investor By the way it would have been nice if Hammond had summarized those principles somewhere The laundry list of Money Tips at the end doesn t do it Still I Would Strongly Recommend This Book I would strongly recommend this book I enjoy this book and it highlighted for me some neat tricks to stopping myself from spending money but this was a REALLY research heavy book I think most people are ok An excellent informative entertaining and thought provoking read this really has made me reevaluate the way I think about money Referencing numerous medical and psychological studies the author looks at how we become attached to money both as a concept and in its physical form from a very young age how we can let it motivate us and surprisingly how it can demotivate us too Though relatively short the author packs in a lot of information in an easily digestible user friendly form and packs in a lot of information in an easily digestible user friendly form and at the psychology of things like spending and saving patterns gambling sales and pricing and at the end sums up her findings in a list of handy tips some useful than others I found the chapter on poverty particularly interesting and at times disturbing while the one about how we all think about money on a day to day basis was fascinating The author makes this a fun book to read contains most of the brain biases and salient studies on how your brain looks at moneyif you haven t read these inds of books already choose this one The author has tried to combine lot of great research into everything related to money Not as much practical advice as I expected but the sheer volume of condensed insights in this book makes it 4star worthy This book was definitely worth the read I have an interest in behavioral economics but I am not a specialist so I was familiar with a number of the topics discussed and the observations made by the author but the author also covered some topics with which I was not familiar that I found very interesting A good example of this was the discussion of poverty and its likely impact an individual s approach to making economic decisions I think I will always remember the author s suggestion not to pick the same lottery number every time you play the lottery While not mentioned in the book I have heard of a real life situation that highlights the downside of almost always picking the same number This book is a good primer on a number of the social and physiological experiments that have been done concerning how we think about and use money I learned a lot about money and the impact it has on us First Impression I always enjoy a good piece about money most of us love money all of us use it as a tool to achieve what we want in life Claudia puts together a collection of insights into the psychology of money with the intention of teaching us how achieve mind over money Thank you to Net Galley for sending this book to me in exchange for an honest reviewSummary Of The BookCome and join Claudia Hammond on a journey through the rough psychological landscape that is our relationship with money CH wants to show us what is going on behind.
