Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Written by the founder of the $25 billion Twentieth Century Mutual Fund family, this basic personal finance guide has the praiseworthy quality of simplicity. Stowers concentrates on concepts (the shrinking dollar, the power of compounding interest, and the hidden risks of conservative investments) rather than techniques (e.g., how to pick stocks, how to construct a budget). Numerous cartoons, charts, and tales of personal experience add life to the dry subject matter. Though Stowers's opinions about the superiority of earnings over dividends, the folly of market timing, and the small investor's need for actively managed stock mutual funds are debatable, the book is not merely an advertisement for Stowers's fund. It is odd, given the title, that almost no space is devoted to increasing one's earning power. Nothing is new or revolutionary here, but the attractive presentation of basic concepts makes this suitable for public libraries.

I actually picked this book up for a dollar at a thrift store. One of the best investments I ever made. It is an excellent introduction to the basics of money management & investing. In particular, it highlights well certain basic concepts such as the shrinking value of the dollar, compounding, importance of saving, attractiveness of mutual funds for the small time investor, and more.

The pictures & layout aid in a very very good introduction to the subject matter.

Format: Hardcover
James E. Stowers' Yes You Can is a financial self-help book full of entertaining cartoons and images that help illustrate very valuable, tried and true information. The straight-forward language sits on the level of everyman's understanding, while universal analogies and examples provide a wider lesson board. The message of Stowers' book is simple: financial independence is achievable-especially when the steps are laid out in front of you in such an enjoyable way.

I love financial self-help books, and have read Ramsey, Bach, Orman, etc. Stowers is the best of them all - sound advice presented with warmth and cute cartoons - not just common sense advice about saving and investing, but in depth discussion about how to invest, insure to protect your family, and motivation to follow through . A great read and I will always keep a copy in my library.
