Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Income investing means making a profit on the money investments pay out: interest and dividends. Keep the actual investment, and receive the cash. And reinvest it so you can live on your portfolio's earnings: common stocks that pay dividends, bonds, Real Estate Investment Trusts, and Master Limited Partnerships.

About the Author

Richard Stooker believes most investors begin as he did: thinking they're smart enough to beat the market. After lots of research, in books and by losing money in the financial markets, he figures out he can't compete with the entire world and can't foretell the future. Partner with the world. Own many pieces of businesses that meet the basic needs of people, and which share the profits with their owners.

Format: Paperback
Whew! Someone has finally explained what's most reliable and what's not in today's apparently-volatile investment world. Even better, this book explains it all using broad, easy-to-understand concepts and everyday language.

I used to invest regularly. Oh, it wasn't very much, so I didn't lose sleep over financial headlines during the past couple of years. Frankly, I'm not even an armchair stockbroker; I simply chose companies I liked to feel a connection to.

However, I did step on the brakes when several banks and investment firms folded. I was unwilling to risk money that might otherwise be spent on something more entertaining... and reliable.

This book restored my understanding -- and confidence -- in investments. Before I recognized the differences between trading and investing... well, I lumped the entire realm of stocks, bonds, etc., into one large, liability-fraught category.

Now, I have a far better understanding of what's safe, what's foolish, and the most solid approach to long-term investments.

The "ah-HA!" moments throughout this book will provide relief for anyone who -- in the past -- handed money to a broker or investment firm and crossed their fingers.

They say that knowledge is power. Well, this book definitely provides the knowledge that will empower any investor (small or large) to make better decisions in a changing marketplace.

If you're a current investor, or someone who'd like to invest but the economy makes you nervous, this is definitely the book to read.

This is an excellent book. I am a huge fan of income producing products and I've subscribed to Richard Lehman's newsletter on that subject since 2003 with very gratifying results. Mr. Stooker's book is a welcome addition to a very narrow field. He writes clearly and extensively on a complex subject and I am researching some very solid possibilities as a result of "Income Investing Secrets". The language can be a little casual but is always relevant and does not detract. Most importantly, a beginner could easily develop a very gratifying income producing strategy from this experience. His specific recommendations towards the end are also very solid but you still need to do your own research. He would provide a great service to his readers through a financial blog following and updating his strategies and recommendations. As Rod Stewart said: "the wisdom of a lifetime no one can ever tell" but Mr. Stooker comes very close. Enjoy and profit!

I like reading business and investment books, but this one blows them all out of the water!
It's not that other books aren't good. Some even very good. But this one is so in-depth, it weighs all the pros and cons of each investment vehicle, it quotes a lot of research and proves what works and what doesn't. And it does it all in a way that anyone can understand.

It's also geared toward something we should all think about - the long term.

I'm so impressed with this book, that I'm going to buy several for my immediate family so we can all share in these investment secrets.

I'm going to keep a sharp lookout for all of Richard Stooker's books from now on.

Format: Paperback
I like the author's perspective on investing. Generally, I invest in real estate, but the same principles that I practice - investing for the long term benefits, and avoiding unnecessary and wealth-reducing buying and selling - are also promoted in this insightful book.

As the author says in the introduction, his book is "not a short-term quick fix. The short term buying and selling of financial securities is more properly known as "trading," and is most akin to gambling." He insists that in a typical situation where you buy and sell many stocks, your broker who gets paid commissions on every transaction, is the only guaranteed winner. And sooner or later, being human, you're bound guess wrong more often than not.

In the author's world, making money in the market does not involve buying and selling for a profit. It means buying securities that pay income. He advices to focus on securities that pay solid dividends and that meet basic human needs. Then, re-invest your earnings so you compound your "golden eggs" and you greatly increase your chances of having a happy and prosperous retirement.

This is a good, solid investing philosophy that not only increases your chances to make money, but it makes rational sense. The variety of investment vehicle types that the book describes is great background information for anyone thinking of investing for dividends and interest.

While no one can guarantee how much income you will receive from investments, if you want to get started on the right foot, this ought to be one of the first investment guides that you should read.

Format: Paperback
Like the author, I have been inspired by the "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" story. My biggest question after that was What Next? Income Investing Secrets helped me determine my answer. Dozens of income investing methods are covered in this book and the strategies needed to be successful are discussed. Much of the fear and apprehension of taking my hard earned money and putting it to work to make more are eased.

This book is a great source of information for the investor looking for guidance on what to do next.
