Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

If you can get beyond the tired investment aphorisms-"Save, save, save" and "Buy low and sell high" both make appearances-there is some solid counsel in CNBC anchor Claman's anthology of advice for the novice investor, but little that will help anyone already in the thick of the market. Following her entry on the three guiding principles of "the Greatest Investor of Our Time," Warren Buffett, Claman hands over the reins to a roster of almost 60 contributors, all fulltime professionals with impressive credentials, including some household names (Donald Trump among them). Many wisely advise beginning investors to rely upon their own knowledge, common sense, research and discipline, and to eschew relying upon their financial planner. Familiar arguments are given for investing in no-load index funds and abandoning fruitless quests to beat the market-the latter suggestion made in a nicely written anecdotal piece from John C. Bogle, founder of the Vanguard group. Others, including TV's Lawrence Kudlow, author Robert Kiyosaki, Proctor & Gamble CEO A.G. Lafley and "Adventure Capitalist" Jim Rogers provide a smorgasbord of similarly basic investment advice. Unfortunately, Claman's book is an informative introduction that doesn't carry any follow-through; investing in a more comprehensive guide would probably be sound advice for those seeking it.

Review

Reading alternate sections with consummate skill, Jason Singer and Staci Snell sound like they believe in this primer. The author interviewed stock-picking luminaries like Warren Buffet, Jim Cramer, and others to learn heir success secrets. The strategies she extracted are presented in a expository style that is fast moving and enjoyable. The three-hour production might be just what listeners need to become comfortable with investing.

This is a wonderful book with a collection of investment advice from business superstars and investment gurus. For what they are worth, they serve as good stories and great food for thought as we are always interested in hearing what the Fortune 500 CEOs, personal finance and investment heavyweights have to say about accumulating great wealth and their individual investment strategies and experiences. Having said that, I don't think it is a useful book to pick up to learn about investment (maybe that is not the author's intentions anyways), particularly for beginners.

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.

This is a compilation of thoughts from various business and finance gurus, each ranging from a few lines to a few pages in length. Some of them are inciteful and well worth heeding. Others were so shallow that I wonder why they chose to include them at all. You are better off reading Jim Cramer's several books or the classics by Bogle, Lynch, and Graham, if you want to improve your investment skills. If you are looking for basic household money management help, look at Dave Ramsey's publications.

These days, it seems financial "tips" are a dime a dozen. From neighbors to in-laws, everyone has advice to offer. Yet what we all really want to know is what advice would be given by those who have actually achieved incredible financial success.

Liz Claman, anchor for CNBC, has daily opportunities to interact with these financial giants. After years of on-and-off camera exchanges, Claman decided to help make the real insider advice available to everyone. She asked more than sixty of the smartest, most successful business people in the world to relate the best investment advice they've ever received. The result is a stunning compilation of tried-and-true investment strategy. From Buffett to Forbes to

Trump, the reader will be amazed by how many of the greatest investors have contributed essays to this collection.

Pick up this book, and you will be amazed at the practical advice that its pages contain. If you're a novice in the investment world, you will surely appreciate the common themes that emerge from the various essays. These experts give concrete advice about how to get involved in the game even if you have little energy or time to devote to investing. If you have more time and want to be actively involved, you will receive straightforward guidelines that can be applied to choosing stocks wisely.

Even seasoned investors will be drawn to this book because of the intriguing correlations between these financial giants and the advice that they give. It's fascinating to see the connections between an investor's particular strategy and his or her unique success.

If you want to know how the experts make sense of the overwhelming investment field, I highly recommend that you pick up this book.

The book contains short essays from the best known financial experts of our day and it is always exciting to hear their personal comments. Having read through everyones advice, the twisted yet comfortable thought from Mike Jackson says it all; "..how exciting it is to be boring..."

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.
