Serious Money? Seriously! Those who participate in 401K style investments experience presentations each year. In these presentations they show an index fund performance over time and quickly mention index funds cost less than managed funds. I suppose the presenters of these dog an pony shows read Richard Ferri's book "Serious Money".

You can download the PDF of the book free from Richard Ferri's website. Knowing this I still bought the hard cover because it is a well written investment book worth having. Serious Money covers investment alternatives and strategies beyond what is ever covered in the investment bankers spiel.
