Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Larry Swedroe, the author of The Only Guide to a Winning Investment Strategy You'll Ever Need, has collaborated with Joe H. Hempen to create an up-to-date book on how to invest in today's bond market that covers a range of issues pertinent to any bond investor today including: bond-speak, the risks of fixed income investing, mortgage-backed securities, and municipal bonds. The Only Guide to a Winning Bond Strategy You'll Ever Need is a no-nonsense handbook with all the information necessary to design and construct your fixed income portfolio. In this day and age of shaky stocks and economic unpredictability, The Only Guide to a Winning Bond Strategy You'll Ever Need is a crucial tool for any investor looking to safeguard their money.

Review:

"Awkwardly organized and unduly complicated, this book provides a recitation of everything Swedroe and Hempen — co-principals of Buckingham Asset Management — know about bonds, which is a lot. The problem is that their book isn't pitched to a specific enough audience. Sophisticated investors may not mind the authors' heavy reliance on bondspeak and analytical jargon, but they will wonder why so many pages are devoted to explaining Series EE Savings Bonds. And novices will appreciate the extensive glossary, but they'll be frustrated by the book's lack of explanatory diagrams and its tendency to talk about concepts before properly introducing or defining them. The actual strategy discussion alluded to in the title is addressed only in the book's 25-page, penultimate chapter, where Swedroe and Hempen explain how to use standard techniques like laddering to construct a fixed-income portfolio. If only the preceding 10 chapters had been as succinctly written. (Mar.) " Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
