And so after Munger, another fav of mine has passed on, abeit much younger than Charlie but still at the ripe old age of 90.

I actually didn't know that Jason Zweig was supposed to co-author "Thinking, Fast and Slow" with him but it was eventually abandoned. This probably explains why Zweig's book "Your Money and your brain" had many similarities with the former.

Together with Munger's Psychology of Human Misjudgement, these probably formed the bulk of what I see as temperament been the key to unlocking brilliance and hard work, leading to success.

The Psychologist Who Turned the Investing World on Its Head

Daniel Kahneman explained investors to themselves.

A psychologist at Princeton University and winner of the Nobel Prize in economics, Kahneman died on March 27, age 90.

Kahneman was a pioneer of what became known as behavioral economics, although he always saw himself as a psychologist. Investors who take Kahneman and Tversky’s lessons to heart can minimize fees, losses and regrets. Kahneman may well have had more influence on investing than anyone else who wasn’t a professional investor.
