If you've ever made a financial decision you regretted the next day, you're not alone. In fact, as the emerging field of behavioral economics reveals, you're practically hard-wired to overspend, an activity that lights up the brain's pleasure centers.

"Thinking Money: The Psychology Behind Our Best and Worst Financial Decisions" uses a mix of humor, on-the-street interviews and provocative insights from innovative thinkers to explore why we spend, why we save (or don't) and how we think about money. Travel from Wall Street to Main Street, and from the halls of academia to the Santa Barbara wine country, to find out how our brains—and the marketplace—affect how we deal with money.
