Good sound advice for all investors
on January 18, 2015
A good well written book with common sense, which is not always that common, advice on investing. You will not get burned if you follow it. It is a bit repetitive at times but brief enough that, that flaw is forgivable. Basically what it says is 1. Save your money, 2. Don't borrow using credit cards. 3. Invest in index funds. 4. Don't bother watching the market, check your blood pressure twice a day and the stock market once a year for financial success.
Malkiel's approach will over time make you quite wealthy, but probably never filthy stinking rich.
