So far the No. 1 on my favorite list is HB of Portfolio Mgmt. Chapter 21 − A Return Attribution Model for Fixed Income Securities; concise, clear with little maths; both enlightening and entertaining.

No doubt it was this
Financial Decision-Making in Markets and Firms: A Behavioral Perspective

The "Stocks for the Long Run" was a close second.

I just finished section 4.3 and I haven't read any of these so I guess what you guys are saying is that sections 5 and 6 are totally awesome?

Section 6 was my favorite...unfortunately it's stuff that is least likely to be asked on the exam (at least for big points).

I'm finishing up Section 4.3, too, so a final favorite will have to wait.

So far I like "Creating Value in Pension Plans -- or, Gentlemen Prefer Bonds" the best, if only for the title. I thought it was a fairly entertaining writing style, too, and nicely short. (SN 111)

that's my fav part as well, and actually it was also the easiest part for me since i kind of specialized in behavioral finance/economics in university... that stuff could go really really deep
