More Than You Know: Finding Financial Wisdom in Unconventional Places, by Michael Mauboussin.   In this collection of essays, Mauboussin describes several key principles from disciplines such as biology, physics and psychology, and then he applies these principles to the world of investing.  In short, this book is an attempt to create a multi-disciplinary investing approach by expanding the investor’s mental models beyond those typically taught in business school or more conventional investing texts.  Given more models to work with, an investor should be able to expand his circle of competence and understand a greater number of businesses and market processes.  Berkshire Hathaway’s Charlie Munger has warned that an investor is sometimes little more than a man with hammer, seeing most situations as nails.  After reading this book, an investor will have more than a hammer in his toolbox.
