It is a well written story, simple to read, very fluid and at the same time full of insights. I like the mix of personal experience and empirical findings in psychology, economics and finance et behavioural economics. It makes our mistakes a learning process. As someone once said, good decisions are based on experience and experience is based on bad decisions. Yves Longchamp, Head of Research, SEBA Bank AG

This is a valuable add to any investor’s bookshelf. There is more than enough wisdom contained within to justify its purchase price. Jason A. Voss, Author, Return of the Active Manager

Most of our investment mistakes derive from the fact that humans have a hard time dealing with uncertainty and complex systems. Traders and economists are humans too, Joachim does not forget it. That is why his latest book is relevant and invaluable to read. He takes us through a journey grounded on personal investment experience to devises the most common mechanisms that lead to investment failure. Reading Joachim's book increases our awareness about the true mechanisms of finance. Investment results will follow. Paolo Sironi, Author and Finch expert
