How to invest using straightforward common sense instead of misleading"hot tips" While market pundits argue the rational market theory, one theory gets almost universal consensus­­that of the irrational investor. Outsmarting the Smart Money outlines where most investors go wrong and explains how to instead approach the markets with intelligence and calm. Filled with hard-hitting insights and useful lessons, it shows how to use market-proven techniques and strategies to overcome biases, myths, and mistakes­­and beat the pros at their own game.
