I found a link to this article from a Globe and Mail story. The article deals with a lot how our thinking and biases affects our view of money and investing. I wasn't sure where to post it, but I think its one of the better articles I've read in a while.

Currently I'm reading - The Knowledge Illusion by Steven Sloman and Phillip Fernbach
Summary:
- Humans suffer from the illusion of explanatory depth and we are generally overconfident in what we think we know
- We take for granted the knowledge that is in the community and assume it is our own (think anti-vaxxers who think they know more about vaccines than health care providers)
- The decision making of the collective is generally better than that of the individual (markets are an example of this)

I liked the first half. The videos are good too but I think the book is still worth while as you get a level of understanding the books only touch on.

Anyone can suggest where I can get some free audio books?
At least in Edmonton with a library membership you get access to audiobooks via third party apps (i.e Hoopla, Overdrive ) - have you looked at your local library to see if they have anything similar?
