Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Written by the founder of the $25 billion Twentieth Century Mutual Fund family, this basic personal finance guide has the praiseworthy quality of simplicity. Stowers concentrates on concepts (the shrinking dollar, the power of compounding interest, and the hidden risks of conservative investments) rather than techniques (e.g., how to pick stocks, how to construct a budget). Numerous cartoons, charts, and tales of personal experience add life to the dry subject matter. Though Stowers's opinions about the superiority of earnings over dividends, the folly of market timing, and the small investor's need for actively managed stock mutual funds are debatable, the book is not merely an advertisement for Stowers's fund. It is odd, given the title, that almost no space is devoted to increasing one's earning power. Nothing is new or revolutionary here, but the attractive presentation of basic concepts makes this suitable for public libraries.

20 years ago I read this and tried to get my child to read also. It explains the buy and hold method of investing, advantages of investing at an early age and has great illustrations by a cartoonist that I used to see in various humor magazines.

I've had many friends ask me to teach them about the stock market. Instead of wasting my time, I simply buy this book and give it to them. In my opinion this is the best book ever written that explains the stock market to a new or novice who wants to get started investing in the stock market.

I love financial self-help books, and have read Ramsey, Bach, Orman, etc. Stowers is the best of them all - sound advice presented with warmth and cute cartoons - not just common sense advice about saving and investing, but in depth discussion about how to invest, insure to protect your family, and motivation to follow through . A great read and I will always keep a copy in my library.

I actually picked this book up for a dollar at a thrift store. One of the best investments I ever made. It is an excellent introduction to the basics of money management & investing. In particular, it highlights well certain basic concepts such as the shrinking value of the dollar, compounding, importance of saving, attractiveness of mutual funds for the small time investor, and more.

The pictures & layout aid in a very very good introduction to the subject matter.
