Summary

Smarter decision-making based on cognitive science

AlphaBrain is the investor's guide to achieving more, doing better, and reaching higher. At its core, the magnitude of your success is based on the quality of your decisions. The problem is that human beings are poor decision-makers; we tend to approach problems after they arise instead of planning for them in advance. We put too much weight on instinct, belief, and "gut feeling". We make the same mistakes over and over again - so reliably, in fact, that cognitive science can accurately predict exactly which mistakes we'll make and when. 

This book offers a way to understand and plan for the human mind's usual tendencies to help you make smarter investment decisions. Using a framework based on cognitive research, you'll learn how to approach decisions objectively, systematically, and constantly review your process; you'll take action based on evidence instead of intuition and get ahead of potential problems before they get the best of you.

With so much riding on the correctness of your choices, natural tendency can be a dangerous thing. This book reveals how to remove the bias and emotion to start making choices backed by hard evidence and objective data and lower your stress.

Good book

Enjoyed it but a bit too much finance tech stuff. Needs to cover more professions.

Very insightful ! Love it.

Found out about the author by watching a Ted Talk on YouTube (my fav TedTalk of all time btw), so I’ve decided to listen to this book.

Love it! I’ve read thinking fast and slow but now I understand it even better thanks to Alpha Brain. Big Thanks to the author for taking the time to write it!

neat concept

I may have to read again. I actually listen on audible so reading may give me a different understanding. I notice alot of trading terms and didn't necessarily connect with that. I will try physically reading to see of a better understanding comes.
