I really hate when publisher's do this!
His knowledge of the investing environment is refreshing and at the same time disturbing. He equips the average investor with knowledge that will help him/her in the coming difficult times. This is not a light read, yet the way he weaves story lines through the book, it places the reader comfortably into the investing environment. He gives worst-case scenarios and asks hard questions that makes the reader think. He also reveals astute insight and provides solutions to problems that help the reader feel equipped to tackle the upcoming turmoil in our economy.
The most valuable parts of the book (I think) are
where he mentions that he rates bank and brokerage firms and includes the websites. I felt as if I was reading the consumer report for banks! We actually visited a library and looked up Weiss's bank ratings books there. They rate banks on a quarterly basis, and include a thorough list of banks in every state, their rating and safety (some banks even get A+). We checked out the banks with the higher ratings in our state.
This book provides peace of mind to the average investor trying to save and invest for the future when the economy looks dismally bleak.
Dr. Weiss' new book is like reading one of the "Left Behind" series - but, his is a story developed around plausible outcomes of world events that seem to be developing as we speak.
The book enlightens the reader about the atmosphere of greed and corruption surrounding specific corporations, especially the analysts, brokerage firms and institutions who colluded to implement their strategies. The book gives you a "heads up" to where to park your assets. It also gives you an awareness of the necessity to filter information that you are exposed to when making financial decisions. For example, we watch CNN's L. Dobbs Report every day, but we also know that a major brokerage firm sponsors the show, thus we filter accordingly.
In summary, Dr. Weiss' two books mentioned above are "must reads" especially for those of you near or in retirement.
