Money: Hoboken author to show how we’re thinking about it wrong


HOBOKEN – This Wednesday, Dec. 6, bestselling author, TV pundit, award-winning comedian and Hoboken resident Jeff Kreisler will give a talk about his new book, “Dollars and Sense: How We Misthink Money and How to Spend Smarter,” published last month by Harper Collins.
His book party at Mile Square Theatre – co-sponsored by the theater and Little City Books – is timed to provide money rethinking tips supported by behavioral science for holiday shoppers, New Year’s resolution makers, and everyone looking to spend less and save more.
Given the price of living in Hoboken, it’s a good bet many people could all use some nudges to think about money better.
Fresh off a 10-city sold out book tour and appearances in The Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine and on NPR, Kreisler says he plans to shed a humorous and useful light on the financial and psychological lessons of the book he has co-authored with well-known behavioral economist Dan Ariely (author of “Predictably Irrational”).
Their work has been highly praised so far, with The Washington Post, in saying “What the two authors do brilliantly is take behavioral economics and make it really accessible,” and “Bring your sense of humor, because Kreisler is hilarious.”
The event, billed as a quick evening of entertainment and a book signing in the middle of shopping and stressing season, will take place on Wednesday, Dec 6. Doors open at 7 p.m., the talk begins at 7:30 p.m., at Mile Square Theatre, 1400 Clinton St., Hoboken. Admission is $10 and books will be for sale courtesy of Little City Books.
