"Common sense is not always common, especially when it comes to managing your money. Consider Jill Schlesinger's book your guide to all the things you should know about money but were never taught. After reading it, you'll be smarter, wiser, and maybe even wealthier."--Chris Guillebeau, author of Side Hustle and The $100 Startup

"A must-read, whether you're digging yourself out of a financial hole or stacking up savings for the future, The Dumb Things Smart People Do with Their Money is a personal finance gold mine loaded with smart financial nuggets delivered in Schlesinger's straight-talking, judgment-free style. The book helps you live the life you want, while laughing all the way to the bank--since she's not only wise but also hilarious!"--Beth Kobliner, author of Make Your Kid a Money Genius (Even If You're Not) and Get a Financial Life "The vast majority of people, including highly sophisticated investors, will recognize one if not several of the thirteen 'dumb things' Jill Schlesinger brilliantly discusses in this engaging and important book. I know I did. Drawing on a highly accomplished career--not just as an astute observer of personal finance but also as a planner and options trader--she arms readers with knowledge and tools to help correct existing financial planning mistakes, as well as avoid potentially costly ones in the future."--Mohamed A. El-Erian, chief economic adviser, Allianz, and author of the New York Times bestsellers When Markets Collide and The Only Game in Town

"Jill Schlesinger is one of the smartest voices in personal finance and money management I know. Ignore her words of wisdom at your financial peril."--Helaine Olen, blogger for The Washington Post and author of Pound Foolish

"We don't talk nearly enough about money, which is odd given its central place in most of our lives. And it's shockingly easy for even smart, accomplished people to get tripped up by bad habits or just plain lack of knowledge about money management. Jill Schlesinger has written an eye-opening, practical, and funny book about how we screw up and how we can get it right. I needed this book ten years ago! I'm glad I have it now."
--Alison Green, author of Ask a Manager "The Dumb Things Smart People Do with Their Money is a powerful, easy-to-read guide full of commonsense advice."--Booklist
