I bought the eBook and it is a gem
on March 26, 2012
Larry Swedroe and R C Balaban have written a little book that enumerates some 77 mistakes that the average investor makes. The book can be read in any order and each mistake is carefully explained to the reader. I have all of Larry's prior books and they are a big help in my investing program.
This new eBook is another gem. It contains the do's and do not's gleaned from his other books,carefully organized, a valuable guide for the average investor. When I finished reading the book I thought here is a first aid kit for the investor frightened when the stock market crashes. Larry has cleverly used some of the interesting features of eBooks. For example in the index find the term and then with one click your are taken to the exact place where the word or term is explained in detail. And with one click returned to the exact place you were when you left the text. This feature saves lots of time and makes reading comfortable easy.Use that little arrow in the upper left hand corner of your screen to use this feature.
The glossary and index are helpful to the new investor who may not be able to understand the technical terms used by many writers of financial books. You will find that you will be using this book many times after you first read the volume. and using these features long after you have finished this eBook and reading other financial books.
One thing about any of Larry's books is that each point is carefully and clearly explained. You never have the feeling what was he talking about.I buy all my books on investing from Amazon and my book cases are full of them. Any book that does not fit your requirements can be returned , no questions asked postage paid. Once I purchased a school book for my grandson and he called me to explain that the professor had changed the book for the class. College text books are extremely expensive and Amazon arranged that he returned the book and my purchase price was promptly credited to my account without questionj.
