The Random Walk Guide To Investingby Burton G. Malkiel
Synopses & Reviews
For over thirty years, Burton G. Malkiel's informative, irreverent, and gimmick-free books, "the best investment advice money can buy," have been the first places investors turn to understand the market and to use it to their best advantage. With this concise new guide, Malkiel takes the mystery out of the money game by distilling his reliable plan into ten easy-to-follow rules. Beginning with the basics--"Fire your investment adviser" and "Start now"--Malkiel carefully and with no small measure of humor lays out the rest of his plan, including such rules as "#3: Stiff the Tax Collector" and "#8: The Market Is Smarter than You Are." This 200-page guide is essential for anyone starting a portfolio, rebuilding after the dot-com crash, or simply looking for reassurance in the puzzling world of personal finance.
Simply put, the essential first book for any investor.
The perfect beginner's guide from the best-selling author of A Random Walk Down Wall Street.
Based on the million-copy seller A Random Walk Down Wall Street, this concise new guide by influential and irreverent author Burton G. Malkiel takes the mystery out of personal finance by outlining Malkiel's own ten-point plan for success. Easy to read and easy to follow, this practical book aimed at the investment novice cuts through the jargon to give readers the confidence and knowledge to make wise investment decisions that will provide consistent returns.
Now part of American film and literary lore, Tom Ripley, "a bisexual psychopath and art forger who murders without remorse when his comforts are threatened" (New York Times Book Review), was Patricia Highsmith's favorite creation. In The Boy Who Followed Ripley(1980), Highsmith explores Ripley's bizarrely paternal relationship with a troubled young runaway, whose abduction draws them into Berlin's seamy underworld. More than any other American literary character, Ripley provides "a lens to peer into the sinister machinations of human behavior" (John Freeman, Pittsburgh Gazette).
