This review is from: The Coffeehouse Investor: How to Build Wealth, Ignore Wall Street, and Get On With Your Life (Paperback)
This is a very concisely written book about making the investing process as simple as possible via the indexing approach. I finished reading this book in one night. The examples sited by Bill Schultheis are interesting, often quite amusing.
The key to successful investing is to follow a few very important rules, such as maintaining diversification and balance, paying attention to cost, and stick to the plan for the long term. Bill is an excellent teacher. He lays out the arguments with intuitive evidence that it becomes very easy to "get it".
The topic of asset allocation was a bit sparsely covered. This is the only weakness I could see for an otherwise excellent introductory book on investing.
