Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The Gardners proclaim this to be a "stand-alone interactive guide," but it will appeal most to fans of their Motley Fool Investment Guide (1996) or their just-released You Have More Than You Think: The Motley Fool Guide to Investing What You Have (1998). In their trademarked (literally!) Foolish style, these two brothers provide the charts, graphs, questionnaires, and pop quizzes necessary to help people assess their own financial status, set goals, and develop a plan and method to reach those goals. The Gardners help make investment principles clear and are very effective in reaching those who may be put off by more traditional financial planning guides. Although their advice is quite sound, they serve it up irreverently and make it clear that they do not take themselves too seriously. David Rouse --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

The Wall Street Journal Humorous and savvy.

The Washington Post Funny and flip while containing solid information and advice for individual investors.

Customer Reviews

This book is well put together in that it puts all the financial jargon in laymans terms.

I bought this book after reading several other financial books by Peter Lynch, Roger Lowenstein, Arthur Levitt and John Murphy.

Of course I still have a lot to learn but what a fantastic start by simply reading one book.

I am new to the investment world and for the last year, I have read several books on investing. The problem was I didn't remember all those equations and definitions. I teach chemistry and I could not imagine teaching it without ever giving example problems. This is exactly what the workbook does. Now, I remember all those equations and definitions. Good job, Fools.

A little background on where this review is coming from: I am halfway through this workbook, I have never read the other books of the Gardner brothers, but decided to post a comment about this one since what I have read so far is pretty good. I am currently studying personal financial planning and investment options. In my view, this book is a good starter. The approach is fun and easy, the humour used by the authors in their writing makes the topic much easier to digest. Other pluses are: you encounter the tables and exercises just as you need them-- so that exercises and illustrations/examples of calculations are done with the flow of the whole book. Also, the questionnaire that determines your risk level is pretty innovative. And the workbook gave me a great refresher of my college accounting course. But most of all, the pages I have read make GOOD COMMON SENSE. And this is what will help the novice investor to lay down a solid foundation for financial planning and investing. If you are a beginner in the world of investing, get this book. You won't regret it. :)

This book is easily read and understood. It makes investing very simple. There is no more confusion about who to invest in, and why. I feel very confident with my stock picks now because of this book. The Fools deserve two thumbs up for this book.

After reading TMF Investors Guide, I decided to give the workbook a try. It was worth the look. It guides you through all of the techniques described in the Investors Guide. With pencil and calculator in hand, I went through the entire workbook and now really have a clear picture of my own financial situation and how "foolish" investing will work for me. This book helps to clear up some of the hazy concepts that you might read about in other Motley Fool publications (ie. Foolish 4 and other Dow techniques). I say this is a great book to go through after reading the Motley Fool Investors Guide. It contains the same irreverent humor and lively writng and really reinforces everything the Gardners teach.

If you have loved TMF website, you can certainly gain a lot from this book. Be prepared to face the music when you are filling out the workbook to figure out your networth! I was pleasantly surprised though.
This book is practical and every adult should read and work through it to figure out one's financial standing. The guys are straight forward and tell you like it is.
You can use it to figure out your budget, spendings, how much you can actually invest and how to pay off your high interest debts.
Talks about DRIPs and DSPs, mutual funds, index funds etc etc.
I recommend to all my friends who are thinking about investing in stock market but are buried in debt from their fancy car purchases!

I bought the Fool Investment Workbook before I bought the Investment guide. The workbook was so clear,concise and to the point that I couln't wait to read the page. I knew very little about investing before I bought the book, but now I feel very comfortable investing. Of course I still have a lot to learn but what a fantastic start by simply reading one book. Thanks David for saving me a lot of time and money in lousy investments.

If you're the type of newbie investor who's gung-ho and just plain ready -- this isn't your book! (: The Motley Fool's "You Have More Than You Think" is a much better guide to investing. Now for the other 90% of you, who are just plain nervous about stocks, but can't bear another year of underperforming funds, this is the book for you. Its self-diagnosis questions help you understand **yourself** and investing. I particularly applaud the section which helps you determine your risk level of investing. Definitely a book experienced investors can give to their timid friends. (:

After reading their "Investment Guide" last summer, I [posadas802] really got hooked into this investing game and so far I've realized a 20% gain!!! When my wife got this "Workbook" for me, earlier this year, it really clarified questions I had on various aspects of investing. Specifically, the treatment of understanding financial reports and how to use them to your advantage to screen potential stocks was WELL presented in chapters 7 & 8 by the Foolish Brothers. Also, the topic of stock valuation was clearly presented in chapter 10. Now, I'm not a professional financial person or book critic, but someone who just expects results and the Gardner Brothers have given me this and the confidence to bullishly move on to territory I only thought the rich & Wall Street wise had a corner on. Many THANKS to David & Tom and the rest of the Motley Fool Team in Fooldom!!!
