Morgan Housel just wrote the book you need to read. Matt calls it the best personal finance book he’s read. The Psychology of Money: Timeless Lessons on Wealth, Greed, and Happiness, features short stories exploring the strange ways we think about money and teaches us how to make better sense of life's most important topics. In this episode, Housel shares insights into his own investing strategies, an event that shaped his outlook on risk, a story about a janitor who left behind millions of dollars to charity, and why behavior is the most important factor in mastering your financial life.
