Editorial Reviews

From the Author

A Beginner's Guide to Investing is a blueprint for achieving returns that beat more than 90% of other investors, while spending as little as 5 hours a year on your investments. If this sounds like an absurd promise, it is most assuredly not. 

Investing can be one of the most complicated topics in the world. But it can also be one of the most simple. This book will show you how to make it simpler, and dramatically improve your results in the process.  

I wrote this book because after spending time in the financial industry, I am tired of seeing hard-working savers get ripped off by the Wall Street marketing machine. While stock markets have, on average, doubled about every 7 years over the past century, the returns of individual investors have fallen woefully short of that due to high fees and bad mistakes. I will show you how to avoid both. 
I suggest that those that are relatively new to investing start by reading this book. It will give you a solid foundation and direct you to other works that you can read to continue to progress your skills. If you are still interested in reading more, you can also read my next book, Picking Stocks: A Practical Guide to Investing in the Stock Market.

Alex currently lives in San Francisco, CA. When he is not writing, he enjoys reading, investing, and doing just about anything outdoors.
