Publisher's Summary

A day doesn't go by without money coming into our interactions. But how much do we really understand it? We know we need money. We tend to want more of it. But why do we behave so strangely with it? And why does it have such a hold on us?
Award-winning BBC Radio 4 presenter Claudia Hammond delves into the surprising psychology of money to show us that our relationship with the stuff is more complex than we might think. Exploring the latest research in psychology, neuroscience and behavioural economics, she also reveals some simple and effective tricks that will help you think about, use and save money better - from how being grumpy can stop you getting ripped off to why you should opt for the more expensive pain relief and why you should never offer to pay your friends for favours.
An eye-opening and entertaining investigation into the power money holds over us, Mind over Money will change the way you view the cash in your wallet and the figures in your bank account forever.

Well researched, very informative

An excellent book which provides an insight into how we think about money and how irrational many financial decisions are. The book is well researched and draws on many experiments and real life examples.

Really enjoyable listen but...

As expected from a BBC broadcaster, this was an excellently and entertainingly written and presented. However if you have read any Behavioural Economics or psychology, then there is nothing new here, it just brings it together in one place. The actual advice is condensed to 5mins at the end. Still worth a listen if you are interested in this sort of thing, as I am!

Permanently changed how I think about money

Insightful & informative. This book has protected me from making mistakes with money.

I agree with others that it's long winded (they could have edited the book more ruthlessly), but it's all valuable content.
