First of all, we are reading about personal investment strategies and experiences from different people which may not be applicable to you. I would have to say some of the people interviewed for investment advices have their own agendas. For instance, I noticed various instances where a CEO of a mutual fund company will highly recommend investing in mutual funds as the way to go, or a CEO saying investing a whole lot into his own company's shares and never sold a single share as the reason for his great wealth. Well, I am not here to judge whether their investment advices are sound or not, but just to warn readers not to simply follow their investment advices just because they are CEOs, chairman, founders of billion dollar investment companies. There is a piece of advice offered by a CEO not to invest in individual stock since you will never know enough about that particular stock to comfortably invest in it. He recommends buying baskets of stocks (mutual fund) and as you guess it, he is the founder of a big mutual fund company. So, please take every piece of advice as investment stories not investment advices that you have to follow.Read more ›

What I mean by that is the culmination of expert thought in this book: save early and save often and diversify your investing for the long run. Stay away from fads and short term schemes. To paraphrase Weissenstein, the more people try to hit a home run, the more likely it is that they'll strike out.
Only a couple of the short essays were predictably boring - like Robert Kiyosaki and Alan Miller. However, just picking up a quote here and there from the other contributors was well worth the price of the book. I know I will be using a number of these quotes in the future.
Oh yeah, my favorite quote? that goes to Alan Skrainka: "Investment decisions should be based on investment principles, not investment predictions." Continuously educate yourself so you are prepared for smart decisions and don't try to guess on highs and lows. Watching your money grow over a long period of time may sound very boring, but it is exciting to know you have invested your hard earned money based on the best investment advice you'll ever receive.
