Format: Paperback
I read "Best Laid Plans" when it first came out and it changed my life. I used to worry about not having enough money, not being able to buy a house, etc etc. I have followed Browne's advice and now have a comfortable nest egg. More importantly, when the stock market has dropped dramatically, or the events of September 11 caused worry, I slept well with regard to my finances. Safety, Safety, Safety. I know people who are now seeing therapists in an effort to get over their stock market losses, Actually, my portfolio dropped, to, but not all that much because I followed the rules of diversification that Browne advocates.
Read this book. It will change your life.
