Publisher Comments:

My first book, Rule #1, was a guide to stock trading for people who believe they lack the knowledge to trade. It was deeply satisfying to see Rule #1 reach #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and sell hundreds of thousands of copies. I've since come to realize, though, that many people aren't ready to go from mutual funds directly into trading without understanding investing--for the long term.

But there's the catch, and the reason for Payback Time: Too often, people see long-term investing as mutual fund contributing - otherwise known as long-term hoping. And, take it from me, hoping is not going to pay for food, shelter and medical care in twenty or thirty years. The sad truth is that mutual fund investors are, to a stunning degree, pinning their hopes on an institution that is hopeless.

I'm baffled by why so many people trust fund managers to grow their money given that the vast majority have proven that they can't beat the market. Indeed, only 4% have shown themselves capable of beating the S&P 500 index over the long term, which means that 96% of fund investors see a smaller return on their nest egg than a chimpanzee who simply buys stocks in the 500 biggest companies in America and watches what happens.

But it's worse than that. The net effect of hitching your wagon to mutual funds is that over a lifetime they'll fritter away as much 60% of your nest egg in fees. In Payback Time, I walk you through how yearly fees of as little as 1 to 2% wreak devastation on your portfolio — and once you understand how funds engineer this, you'll rush to invest on your own.

The risk-free approach I'm advocating here is called stockpiling and it's what we've learned from billionaires about how to get rich in bad markets. It's a set of rules for investing (not trading but investing) in the right businesses at the right time — rules that will ensure you make the big money. Most important, by following these rules, you'll be able to sleep at night, knowing the long-term value of your portfolio goes up in a down market.

Applying the strategy outlined in Payback Time is all you need to make millions and retire comfortably. Everything you need is right here. From start to finish, step by step, this hands-on approach will convince everyone who's ever been treated shabbily by the financial system that payback is possible.

From the Hardcover edition.
