"Carl Richards is the anti-Jim Cramer. He doesn't pick stocks, and he doesn't shout. In wise, calm style, The Behavior Gap teaches us how to rein in the emotional saboteur within us-the voice that leads us to double-down when the market is peaking and to make a panicky exit when stocks are a bargain. Richards shows us that, when it comes to our financial security, slow and steady wins the race." — Dan Heath, coauthor of Made to Stick and Switch

However, if you've read a few books on personal finance, this book is only enjoyable to an extent as the idea gets to be repetitive and somewhat helpful to revise your knowledge-base as the information given is not groundbreaking. Overall, the book is quite a quick read with a common sense advice, with helpful tips on becoming financially more responsible.
