Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

This little how-to-invest book, which elegantly summarizes our common worries about how to build wealth, was initially published 11 years ago. This updated, revised, and revamped edition stands the test of time—and of updating. Seattle-based Schultheis states his three principles of investing—allocate assets, approximate stock-market average, and save—then proceeds to expand and expound with personal stories and provocative questions. When is enough enough? What’s behind this Wall Street obsession to beat the market? Why do we need to lead a penny-pinching life today for a high retirement style tomorrow? Forget the complicated formulas, the diversity of spreadsheets. Concentrate instead, he advises, on understanding your burn rate, the meaning of diversification, and the value of being on financial autopilot. Like his peers (Suze Orman et al.), the author exposes two myths: “no load” mutual funds and “great companies make great investments.” All in all, solid and comfortable investment counsel that will help balance (and, eventually, grow) your balance sheet. Appended: partial list of index funds; notes; additional reading. --Barbara Jacobs --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

“It is a wonderful book. Indeed, I’m tempted to say, ‘It looks like I wrote it myself.’ Now, if people will not only read Coffeehouse but act on its message.”
JOHN C. BOGLE, founder of The Vanguard Group

“The best investment book you’ve never read.”
THE SEATTLE TIMES
