Truly the only investment guide you will ever need! March 26, 2011
These textbook ideas are simple, effective and just plain easy! It is perfect for the non-investor who wants a simple plan on how to invest and save for retirement. I plan on reading his other books now. This is the 20th book I have read on investing - and this is by far the best and most clear!
