Now you can offer your students a structured, applied approach to behavioral finance with the first academic text of its kind--Ackert/Deaves' BEHAVIORAL FINANCE: PSYCHOLOGY, DECISION MAKING, AND MARKETS. This comprehensive text--ideal for your behavioral finance elective-- links finance theory and practice to human behavior. The book begins by building upon the established, conventional principles of finance that students have already learned in their principles course. The authors then move into psychological principles of behavioral finance, including heuristics and biases, overconfidence, emotion and social forces. Students learn how human behavior influences the decisions of individual investors and professional finance practitioners, managers, and markets. Your students gain a strong understanding of how social forces impact people's choices. The book clearly explains what behavioral finance indicates about observed market outcomes as well as how psychological biases potentially impact the behavior of managers. Students learn the implications of behavioral finance on retirement, pensions, education, debiasing, and client management. 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.

Praise for The ESSENTIALS OF TRADING "This is the book I wish I had when I began a training program for new traders. John's familiarity with trading and traders is evident in this text. His incorporation of exercises and use of examples bring topics to life, maintaining the interest of even the most hyperactive traders." —Brett N. Steenbarger, PhD, author of The Psychology of Trading "The Essentials of Trading masterfully teaches the novice how to conceptualize, implement, and manage the important fundamentals that form the building blocks of successful trading.

The book is highly recommended as a viable academic teaching tool, and equally so for the developing nonstudent practitioner." —Dr. Gordon H. Dash Jr. Associate Professor of Finance, University of Rhode Island "As the founder of a women's entrepreneurial networking organization, one of the most essential messages I relay to our members is the importance of understanding and managing their own personal and professional finances. John Forman's book is one that I highly recommend to all our members, because of its clear explanations and teaching style that will allow any novice to develop a solid understanding of the world of finance and investment trading." —Sherry Thacker, President and Founder, WENS Inc.

With the bar having been raised for all market participants, The Essentials of Trading brings a fresh look, providing successful examples of the implements necessary to build a trading system and have confidence in your own work." —Joel Marver, Chief Technical Analyst, IFR Division, Thomson Financial
