We’re excited to have Jeff Kreisler, co-author with Dan Ariely, to talk with us about his book "Dollars and Sense: The Behavioral Principles Impacting Money, Work and Life"!

Jeff will talk about money mistakes, how to fix them and how the forces at play in our financial decisions are the same forces that impact our personal and professional lives.

JEFF KREISLER is just another typical Princeton educated lawyer turned speaker, award-winning comedian, author, TV pundit, columnist and advocate for behavioral science. He uses humor & research to understand, explain and change the world.

His second book, "Dollars And Sense: How We Misthink Money and How To Spend Smarter" – co-authored with Dan Ariely – is one of the best business books of the year according to Audible, Huffington Post, Business Insider (“The rare kind of book that makes you feel a lot smarter, while simultaneously giving you actionable tips for improving your daily life”), The Washington Post ("A brilliant and accessible look at behavioral economics”) and more.

Jeff is also Editor-In-Chief of leading the conversation about applied behavioral principles for the modern marketplace – winner of the Bill Hicks Spirit Award for Thought Provoking Comedy, has appeared regularly on CNN, FoxNews, MSNBC, Current TV & Sirius/XM and has toured the known world.
