Format: Paperback
Now I'm not SO confused and scared about the current state of the economy and my investments. This book was a quick and easy read and has provided me with some peace of mind. The information provided is pretty much common sense and presented in a way that is easy to understand. Admittedly, I now realize that my "common sense" is sometimes overtaken by my emotions -- a direct result of the inescapable media hype surrounding this "hot" topic. (I never really thought about this influence until reading this.)

Edelman makes it clear that diversification and the ability to maintain a long-term investment approach are essential in today's market (easier said then done, I know). Also, I never really thought about how beneficial (and essential) rebalancing your investment portfolio is until I read this book.

What I found reassuring was the extent of the historical information provided through clever use of charts and graphs...Edelman makes a strong case for staying the course by reminding us that this is not the first time the market has experienced such turmoil and most likely won't be the last. I am now more confident now that financial prosperity is likely to return (but when?!?!). I'll keep this pocket guide close and re-read it should I get an urge to change my investment approach or cash out simply out of fear that the market will never rebound. Definitely a valuable read for investors of all ages.

Whereas Ric Edelman's earlier works, "The Truth About Money" and "The New Rules of Money" are outstanding, his lates book, "Rescue Your Money" is essentially an advertisement for his firm's advisory services. The book is unworthy at any price.

I bought this book because I've been concerned in this current financial environment, I wanted to see how Ric's advice might have changed from previous books. I've read several of his books and am fortunate to listen to his radio show on Saturdays so I've certainly heard his wisdom over the past 13 years. I was pleased to find that his advice is the same as it has always been. A calm rational approach to your investments will continue to pay off. What worked in the boom also works in the bust.

Really, I bought this book for my wife as much as myself. She's more jittery and worried than I am, and will be comforted by this sensible advice! Buy this book and rebalance!

Ok, I've read this same material over and over... nothing new here... just a rehash of old, time-worn recommendations... The author obviously rushed this book to market to capitalize on turbulent economic conditions and frightened investors... overall, a waste of my time and money.

4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Mariusz Skonieczny on August 12, 2009
Format: Paperback
The author states that the secret to investing is "Buy Low and Sell High." Even though almost everyone has heard it before, investors still do the exact opposite. There is no better example than in 2008 and 2009 when many people sold because of fear, following the "Buy High and Sell Low" philosophy. The author backs up this point with solid data.

The author also states that many want to beat the market. But who really cares? When you achieve your financial goal, does it really matter that you beat the market 20 years ago?

This is a short book, but it gives valuable advice. It can probably be read in one sitting.

If you're looking for a good common sense book on what to do in the current economic environment, this is it. It's a simple read that I knocked out in one sitting, but I'm sure that I'll read through a few more times and use as a constant reference. Edelman's advice and common sense, easy to understand advice prompted me to follow up this purchase with two of this other books, "The Truth about Money" and "The Lies About Money". I now have more confidence that I have a chance to get through these hard economic times and am beginning to formulate a plan to have success in my family's financial future. It is a great way for people like me who don't spend their lives following the stock market could navigate its waters

I read this book in one sitting as advertised. It made investing seem very simple. All one needs to do after reading this book is have money to invest and then pick the right funds according to their circumstance, then follow the "Golden Rule" to Sell High and Buy Low.

Format: Paperback
This little book is worth reading if only for the thought process. It's not to be taken overly literally. The book starts with the accurate precept that an investor or retiree needs more yield than cash or T-bills can provide so as to cope with inflation. It's a fund manager's viewpoint sensible approach to asset allocation. The book contains some good advice, more for what not to do than for anything positive.It's as much motivational theory as investment advice. There are no claims to being more prescient than anyone else.Except for advice to re-balance, Edelman advocates essentially an autopilot approach to asset allocation. Edelman does not answer the question of how well do balanced ETFs and MFs fulfill his criteria.

There is Interesting derogation of the record of active trading, as advocated by Jim Cramer and others. There is much good advice as when he says that beating the market like many wall street gurus claim to do is the wrong goal. The book's topic is asset allocation, long term, diversification, favors ETFs over MFs, re-balance. Edelman emphasizes a banal sounding philosophy of buy low sell high as he implies that his recommended methods do this automatically. He provides a list of investments that fulfill his criterion along with those that don't. He ignores precious metals in his purview. He overlooks the insurance value of annuities

The book cites long term statistics, but I lack confidence in his admonition that things are no different now. In fact many things are different. There have been endemic structural political changes that have greatly affected markets since about 1965. There have been politically motivated structural changes to economy, We will never see 8% growth rates again.
