Minding the Markets: An Emotional Finance View of Financial Instability
In this groundbreaking book, Tuckett argues that most economists' explanations of the financial crisis miss its essence; they ignore critical components of human psychology. He offers a deeper understanding of financial market behavior and investment processes by recognising the role played by unconscious needs and fears in all investment activity

Interesting take on the way in which we make decisions - and although it focuses on fund managers making decisions in financial markets, the principles are the same for other categories / people. Takes a psychodynamic view of the world - which I am not completely sold on but nevertheless is a good antidote to much of the prevailing homo-economicus / behavioural economics view of human decision making. Good book to dip into.
