Dollars And Sense: How We Misthink Money and How to Spend Smarter
From casinos to car dealerships every business out there seems to figure out the best ways to part us from our hard earned money. They succeed because our relationship with money is so complicated. In this book Ariely and Kreisler do a great job of explaining how things like anchoring, compartmentalizing, and experience impact the money we spend. Once you’re aware, they put you in control by teaching you how to spend your money intentionally and help you establish your own sense of value.
The best thing about this book is that they manage to explain what might otherwise be dreadfully boring topics in a fun and interesting way. This is a book you’re going to want your wife or partner to read with you, especially when it comes to the part about doing the dishes.
