Book News Annotation:
Malkeil (economics, Princeton U. and former director of the Vanguard Group) reviews the record of a variety of investment techniques and concludes that buying over time and holding a low-cost, internationally diversified index of securities results in the best performance. Highly readable and geared towards the individual investor, the text includes recommendations based on age and risk-tolerance. First published in 1973, this revised edition (the tenth) includes a new focus on opportunities for long-term returns in emerging markets as well as a new chapter describing behavioral finance.
