From Library Journal
Passell provides an up-to-date discussion of investment instruments available to individuals, with 15 two-page hypothetical case studies illustrating the use of these instruments. The text is amply augmented by tables and directories guiding readers to recommended sources. Though investment books such as this come and go as conditions like interest rates, inflation, and tax laws change, Passell's advice is unusually sagacious. He presents sophisticated academic concepts in a highly readable format and his case studies are effectively thought-provoking. Public libraries needing to update their generalized personal finance titles should buy this one. Joseph Barth, U.S. Military Acad. Lib., West Point, N.Y.
