In Dollars and Sense: How We Misthink Money and How to Spend Smarter, world-renowned economist Dan Ariely explores the fundamental irrationality of personal finance.
Partnering with humorist and writer Jeff Kreisler, Ariely examines the complexity of how money makes us feel, examining the psychology behind the overconfidence, emotional obstinacy, and perceptual quirks that shape our spending patterns and drive our debt—whether we realize it or not.
Blending case studies with relatable anecdotes, research, and behavioral economics, Ariely and Kreisler set about undermining many of our most sacred beliefs about money.
From credit card debt to a household budget to the allure of holiday sales, they expose the flawed reasoning that justifies so many of our monetary choices and provide practical takeaways to help readers spend smarter and make better financial choices. Dollars and Sense serves as a manual to help us overcome our worst financial instincts, with a bit of humor along the way.
Ariely is the professor of Psychology and Behavioral Economics at Duke University. He is the author of four New York Times bestselling books including The Upside of Irrationality and The Honest Truth About Dishonesty. Kreisler is the author of Get Rich Cheating. Book signing to follow.
