Looking for another "list" book guaranteeing you great wealth if you follow these five or 10 tips? This ain't it. As an early reader and fan of Steve Sears' work for years I can testify that this is a different (welcome) beast altogether: The market as a living, breathing animal that can create security for you over time provided you know how to listen to it. No schemes. No "must buy" stocks. Rather: Solid portfolio building for the long run with the risk-management overlay that really matters. (Hint: First do no harm.) Plus a history-of-the-market narrative remarkably fast and free of clutter. Give it an A.

Steve Sears shows investors how to succeed when the system -- and one's natural inclinations -- lead in the opposite direction. Read and learn. Steve is one of the few must-read financial journalists. If you read his Barron's column, you know that he takes the unconventional approach. He talks to many of the best and brightest on Wall Street but he's still a thinker apart. What I've enjoyed the most about his writing is seeing sophisticated strategies reduced to their core elements and laid bare for examination. A full-length book takes matters a step farther by laying out a systematic approach to thinking about investing. I won't miss it and I advise you not to, either. -- Brendan Conway, funds columnist and blogger, and former stock market reporter for Dow Jones Newswires and the Wall Street Journal
