Editorial Reviews

Review

"...has a lively writing style and dissects the rather cluttered world of financial information in a manner helpful for individual investors." (Wall Street Journal, August 7, 2006) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

IPraise for NAVIGATE THE NOISE

"Instructs the investor on how to deal with a more problematic investment climate. Richard's guidance is thoughtful, detailed, and full of common sense."
—Douglas A. Kass, General Partner, Seabreeze Partners Short LP

"An excellent and concise work by an acknowledged master in the field of strategic equity analysis from a quantitative perspective. [It] stands like a beacon amidst the Wall Street landscape of hype, confusion, and, well, noise."
—Charles Albers, retired senior vice president and portfolio manager OppenheimerFunds

"Bernstein's basic premise about the lack of value of today's so-called 'information' is so true. It's just like food—a lot more of it isn't healthy; it's quality that counts."
—Jeffrey J. Diermeier, President and CEO, CFA Institute

"Rich Bernstein does a marvelous job separating investment facts from fantasy in a clear and concise way. [It] should be included on the reading list of any serious investor."
—Michael E. Kenneally, Chairman and Global CEO Credit Suisse Asset Management --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

15 of 16 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli HALL OF FAME on July 10, 2001
Format: Hardcover
The more information a market provides the more efficiently it will operate, right? Well, in theory that’s so. In fact, market transparency has been a top goal of financial regulators in the U.S. for decades. But is it possible to have too much information? Richard Bernstein makes a compelling argument that not all information is good information. Noise — the deluge of 24-hour news coverage, constant cable TV market-chatter, continuous Internet feeds and barrages of electronic updates — is a danger to most investors, who lack the resources to separate the accurate from the spurious. This book is a Godsend for investors who think — usually mistakenly — they can make sense of it all. Bernstein tells you how to cut through the noise by focusing on long-term investment plans, diversifying and clearly assessing risk. We [...] recommend this informative book for its crisp, personal style, and for its practical approach to bringing some peace and quiet to your portfolio.

Bernstein makes the whole investment process very clear and understandable. I was amazed at how many stupid investment errors I was making by simply watching CNBC and reading every word in every business magazine.
It's an easy and quick read. Definitely worth it!!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the best book I've read in several years. It is thought provoking and backed up by data to show which stocks do well and poorly over time. Alot of the information is counter-intuitive--i.e. shows how your gut instinct is often incorrect. I particularly like the book's discussion of risk, and how the conventional view of risk differs considerably for the average investors view of risk. I plan to reread this book soon.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By Richard O'Hara, CFA on March 12, 2002
Format: Hardcover
This readable book explains very important concepts (risk/reward, asset allocation etc.) very well. Serious long-term investors would be well advised to navigate the noise (I would suggest shutting off CNBC as a start), read Richard's book, and then create a diversified portfolio that is expected to help them fund their long-term liabilities (education, retirement etc.) while matching their true risk tolerance.

Format: Hardcover
A must-read for anyone that really wants to understand the stock market and why it does what it does. The book has helped me understand what investing over the long term is all about and how short term flows of information and emotion impact the short term performance of any investing strategy.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By WPH on December 26, 2001
Format: Hardcover
A topic that I would suggest is in the back of investors' minds yet one they aren't willing to address for a variety of reasons. Rich Bernstein brings to light the media's influence on investing decisons and that the "noise" generated by the media distracts us from long term investment objectives. This book is to the point and in layman's terms...a must read for all investors AND financial advisors.

Format: Hardcover
This is not a book that will unlock an investment secret. On the contrary, it will reacquaint today's investor with the age-old fundamentals of successful investing -- planning, asset allocation, style diversification, monitoring and good ol' time in the market. Imagine that -- the secret to successful investing is actually no secret at all! It's time to get back to basics, turn off the noise, and invest with success. Thank you Rich Bernstein and staff for reintroducing us to an old friend.

Format: Hardcover
Rich Bernstein is one of the "Wisest" Professionals on Wall Street. While there are a lot of smart people in the investment community that can easily rattle off facts and figures, Rich helps you understand why much of the information is worthless and can even be harmful to an individual investor. "Navigate the Noise: Investing in the New Age of Media and Hype" helps explain how individuals can avoid following the croud, or getting caught up in the news event of the moment. He provides a common sense and thoughful appoach to what information is important to achieving YOUR investment goals and objectives, and not simply following the croud when it comes to making investment decisions. With all the talking heads in the media and investment community Rich Bernstein is a "Breed Apart".
This is one book on investing that can help new and experienced investors stay focused on the information that can make a positive difference to their investment returns.
