Using logic and research the author devastates conventional wisdom. I have read over 12 books and this is one of the best 3. They are all synergistic and valuable.
This is not a marketing guy with a book looking for seminar or marketing events...it is instead a very deep thinker that has been in the field for a long time observing and thinking...the results show.
I highly recommend this book.

"Rigged" is an extremely valuable and easy-to-read book for anyone interested in learning how the financial services and investment advisory industries really operate. Most retail investors are simply not aware of the competing business models that comprise these industries. Banks, broker-dealers, Registered Investment Advisors, portfolio management firms, financial planners, trust companies, insurance companies, etc. The list seems endless, and the non-transparency and behind-the-scenes conflicts of interest can be frustrating at best. James Beattey has done a wonderful job navigating through all these complexities and allowing his readers to arrive at their own informed and educated opinions of the type of firm best suited for them. Your existing advisor will know that "you ate your Wheaties this morning" the first time you meet with him or her after reading this remarkable book because you'll know all the tough questions to ask and you'll have gained valuable insights and knowledge in managing your financil affairs with a direct result on your personal confisence level.

I have read several books on the advantages of utilizing an IUL to build long-term wealth, but this one is by far the best. Beattey is skilled in his presentation as he debunks mainstream myths about conventional investing. He covertly envokes emotion as he lures the reader deeper in quest of the financial "holy grail." One eventually experiences relief as the author unveils the mysterious product foretold in the early chapters. Too bad I couldn't give this one 6 stars...
