Summary

“Do we really need yet another book about the financial crisis? Yes, we do—because this one is different….A must-read for anyone who wants to understand the mess we’re in.”—Paul Krugman, New York Times Book Review “Fox makes business history thrilling.”—St. Louis Post-Dispatch A lively history of ideas, The Myth of the Rational Market by former Time Magazine economics columnist Justin Fox, describes with insight and wit the rise and fall of the world’s most influential investing idea: the efficient markets theory. Both a New York Times bestseller and Notable Book of the Year—longlisted for the Financial Times Business Book of the Year Award and named one of Library Journal Best Business Books of the Year—The Myth of the Rational Market carries readers from the earliest days of Wall Street to the current financial crisis, debunking the long-held myth that the stock market is always right in the process while intelligently exploring the replacement theory of behavioral economics.

    ABOUT THE BOOK
    It’s easy to feel trapped and frustrated by the numerous debts that many of us face. It can cause some people to feel isolated, but it is important to remember that debt is a part of life we all have to deal with at some time or another.
    The key factor in dealing with debt problems is to simply face your debts head-on. Trying to hide from debts or put them off will only make things worse. Debts do not disappear if you pay them no attention. This guide will present various methods that can be used to reduce and pay off your debt. We’ll discuss key elements of various debts, and shed insights and techniques on how to deal them.
    Leaving a debt unattended is similar to leaving an acute health problem unattended, only to find that one day it has gone from an acute to a chronic stage. Just as you would visit the doctor, and use the prescribed medication to bring the situation under control and eventually eliminate it, you will need to apply these techniques to your finance problem to help reduce and pay off your debt bills.
    
    EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK
    2. Consider debt negotiation.
    In a debt negotiation your creditor will work with you to set up a new repayment plan that is be better suited to your present financial position. The process may involve a freezing of the interest rate or a reduction on the balance owed. In some cases, both measures are taken to arrive at a new repayment plan.
    Depending on the scale of your debt problem and your ability to meet your financial obligations, entering into a debt negotiation could be in your favor. Face the truth head on. Quickly identify if you will need help with your debts and take actions as soon as possible.
    Credit companies are particular about which debtors they engage in negotiation deals. Their aim is to make as much money as possible. Sometimes a good debtor seems to get punished. Creditors are more likely to negotiate repayment with debtors who have missed payments and at risk of becoming delinquent, so be careful.

    Healing Hormones tackles a huge, attention-getting subject. TV and radio shows, websites telling people to take it easy, slow down, de-stress to feel better, live longer, be a better parent and more loving mate. But how? The prescriptions are disappointing: Yoga? Time-consuming and difficult for many. Prescription drugs? Costly, subject to abuse and may not be helpful. Naturopathic remedies? Unproven, untested and often ineffective.Healing Hormones has a better answer: show readers how to harness their own bodies' heal producing chemicals to improve their lives. Healing Hormones takes the take-care-of-yourself trend a step beyond where it has been before. Author Mark J. Estren, Ph.D., investigates five body-produced hormones that counter the stress response to make life better, calmer and more relaxed. The five healing hormones are dopamine, nitric oxide, endorphins, oxytocin, and serotonin.Healing Hormones will be readers' top choice to learn the pluses and minuses of the remarkable  hormones that drive their health and happiness or undercut it. Estren—who has more than 20 years of experience writing about medical issues and research for patients and their families—explains how to harness the power of these healing hormones in clear, easily understandable language.
