Dylan Ratigan's six favorite books

Dylan Ratigan is the former global managing editor for corporate finance at Bloomberg News and host of MSNBC's The Dylan Ratigan Show.

His new book is Greedy Bastards: How We Can Stop Corporate Communists, Banksters, and Other Vampires from Sucking America Dry.

One of Ratigan's six favorite books as told to The Week magazine:
Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman

If [Dov] Seidman [in How] is saying that how we work at our challenges is the answer, Kahneman's current best seller says, Here's how. Kahneman is a psychologist, and he asks us to understand that our brains have two systems for solving problems, and that we each need to recognize when the rational side is being overridden by the system driven by emotion.
Read about the other books on Ratigan's list.
