5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Intermediate book, January 16, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Stocks for the Long Run: The Definitive Guide to Financial Market Returns & Long Term Investment Strategies, 4th Edition (Hardcover)
This is the book to read after studying the general investing books that cover all asset classes.
it's comprehensive in that it includes discussion of indexes, markets, risk, historical returns, equity investment vehicles, etc.
Also includes newer topics such as Behavioral Psychology.
At 400 pages it's at the right level of detail for do-it-yourself investor who doesn't want to get bogged in analysis of efficient frontiers or CAPM.
Unfortunately it was published just before our current crisis so we will have to wait until the next edition to get the author's thoughts on conditions we are experiencing now.
