The author introduces you to a wealth of information that will help you build your investment confidence. I like the fact the author has provided plenty of sources throughout. What this does is boost the credibility of this guide immensely!
It's fairly easy to follow and there's definitely something for everyone to gain. Good stuff!
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.
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.
