5.0 out of 5 stars A solid overview of TIPS, August 9, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Explore TIPS: A Practical Guide to Investing in Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (Paperback)
I've been a professional quantitative analyst and portfolio manager on the stock side for 20 years. I wanted to learn more about TIPS. This book fits the bill nicely. It walks you through the rewards and risks of owning TIPS. It also gives you all the nuts-and-bolts details that you need to implement a TIPS purchase or sale, including consideration of where to buy them and the associated trading costs. While you could get these details on your own, this book saves you a lot of time and effort.

If there is a second edition, it would be interesting to add a discussion of TIPS returns over time and the factors responsible for those returns. In other words, when TIPS have done exceptionally well (or poorly), what were the driving factors.

The book is well written and a good value for those who are new to TIPS. In the interest of full disclosure, I don't know the author.
