They are a must for personal investment finance for retirees and those working toward a healthy retirement.
I spent some time searching Amazon for good books to start learning about finances. My initial research returned other books that were very, very, introductory level, and focused on things like "how to make a budget" or "why you should save money every month". While these types of titles are surely of use for the absolute beginner, they are somewhat lacking for people with the goal of understanding how to put their money to work saving for the future.
The book is an easy read. I found it so helpful I searched Amazon for the author, Rick Ferri, and picked up some of his other titles as well. Highly recommended.
This is the first investment book I've ever read. I purchased it on the recommendation of an investment podcaster I respect. It has helped me develop a plan for myself and my long-term investment strategy. I wouldn't say it's a beginner's book though. To me, it seemed the author assumed the reader knew some basics about investing and could follow his analysis.
The premise of the book is based upon several studies the author leans upon to demonstrate that at some level, sometimes a small level, a diversification benefit is gained by putting money in asset classes that are not directly affected by the stock market. The author does a nice job giving the reader low-cost, no load index mutual funds or ETF's at the end of most chapters as starter points to look at investing in those particular asset classes.
I agree with some of the other reviewers, the editor needs looked at typographical errors abound. They don't take away from the book, but make it appear less than professional...hence the 4 stars instead of 5.
The mistake I made was buying it on the Kindle. It was a complete accident. Because he refers to charts that can be a page or two back from your current Kindle page, it made it a pain to flip back and forth when I suspect the book would be easier to deal with. But, I put that mistake on me for being in a rush.

Tra quelli che ho letto, è il primo che riesce a spiegare in modo semplice, ma rigoroso, la diversificazione:
Tute le spiegazioni si basano su grafici, ma poche formule
Questo testo dimostra l'ottima capacità divulgativa del mondo anglosassone, quando riesce a non cadere nel tono dei testi di "auto-aiuto" e dell'"empower yourself"
Peccato sia un po' troppo "biased" verso il mercato americano (al quale, d'altronde, si rivolge...).
Good chapters about the characteristics of each asset class and about how to build and mantain your own portfolio. Pretty easy to read and understand as well.
É uma pena que ele não seja escrito utilizando dados e exemplos do mercado brasileiro.
