Stein, an economist and part-time TV and movie personality, and DeMuth, an investment psychologist, make a good writing team. They combine a wealth of information, including hard data, graphs, and charts, with a clear and precise writing style that investment novices will appreciate. The book also contains practical tips and advice designed to help readers do their own research and know the questions to ask when dealing with investment professionals. --Shawn Carkonen --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
The book had a lot of humor sprinkled throughout.
The heart of the book is the section on how to combine all of these investments into a portfolio that balances your ability to take risk versus return.
