Behavioral Corporate Finance by Hersh Shefrin
Students work together in groups, making decisions to run a simulated company, in a setting that provides them with an opportunity to identify their own psychological tendencies, the tendencies of others, and to develop processes and group cultures that mitigate their vulnerability to behavioral pitfalls.

While it has interesting examples of various pitfalls, the writing quality is sub-par, it’s filled with buzzwords and makes no meaningful conclusions about much of anything from a quantitative or “how to” sort of approach to avoiding the behavioral pitfalls it blabbers about. Rather than anything really useful, the book is filled with “hey this can happen look out! The book was assigned as the basis for a master’s level economics and finance course, and is unquestionably the most pointless textbook I’ve ever been assigned.
While potentially useful if you’re a CEO or director, this book is pointless drivel and crap as a student. One of the chapters is even missing, they just tell you “online at For a required textbook for a college class, this was a very easy to read, interesting book.
Short to the point chapters with good examples. Consider yourself lucky if this ends up being one of your required readings. Book is good, has no problems or missing. It looks old but that is exactly it should be. Finance and stocks always helps. The book is like new and the price is really cheap totally worth it: All expectations met regarding delivery time and quality.
