This book is unique as it spends a significant amount of time examining how behavioral finance can be used effectively by practitioners today. The book's solid academic approach provides opportunities for students to utilize theory and complete applications in every chapter. A wide variety of end-of-chapter exercises, discussion questions, simulations and experiments reinforce the book's applied approach, while useful instructor supplements ensure you have the resources to clearly present theories of behavioral finance and their applications.
