In this book, the author lays out why you should be investing in index funds and then proceeds to give you tips on how to start investing. For example, you'll learn if you need a financial advisor, what your risk tolerance is, what dollar cost averaging is, how to pick the exact funds you'll invest in and more. She even gives you blueprints that you can use.

This book is written for the person that knows they should be doing something to increase their odds at a happy retirement, but has avoided digging in and making a plan. If you have dodged addressing this because you thought it was too difficult, or were confused by the lingo, this easy to read work may be just the ticket.
Ms. Friedberg speaks to the everyday person and cites studies and includes charts for those that are more visually oriented. There is a table of contents that will help someone pinpoint topics they want to re-visit. There are helpful summary points at the end of each chapter also.
If you don’t want to do-it-yourself, she has included information about advisors. Knowing what types there are and how they are compensated will help you make a better choice.
There is some solid advice here and she makes everything accessible. If you are someone who has been managing your portfolio for a number of years, read Forbes or Financial Times and watch Cramer or other investment shows, this will be too basic for you. If you are someone at a dinner party that smiles when others are talking about ETFs and market class, this may be the book to get you started.
I was provided a free copy to read in order to write an honest review.

The book provides very basic information that you can easily find online. The book can be summed up in few lines:

1. invest in index funds with the lowest management fees
2. you can make more money if you start saving early (25 yr vs 40 yr old) at say 6.5%
3. one to three index funds are sufficient
4. at a minimum, contribute as much as employer matching

That really sums up the entire book. The author's claim to riches is that she invested when she was in her early 20s with low fee, average return.

I found this book exceptionally helpful. It discusses the investment strategy of mutual fund and ETF indexing, which time and again proves as valuable as any other investment strategy. I focus on low-cost investments and this book helped reinforce that focus and provided me with a few new considerations.
