    Absolute Must Read!

    This book is essential reading for any investor. If you can only read one book on investing--this is the one. Not hard to understand and very practical.

    A must read for the 'do-it-yourselfer'

    A very common sense and easy to read summary of mutual fund investing. I have re-read this book many times putting it into the perspective of today's markets. I have set up test portfolios with his data and found them to perform better than the average with less volatility. This has been a very enlightening book and a must read for all mutual fund investors.

    Required reading for the Individual Investor!

    Bernstein, through the use of understandable examples and cold hard facts makes a compelling case for why you should us a diversified portfolio of index funds to manage your own money. The book also explains why picking individual stocks is a loser's game unless you are Warren Buffet.

    Perfect Timing

    What great timing! Having just completed 10-years with a great company, I decided to take a different position with a new company. This left a decision regarding what to do with my existing 401K assets. Although I am a Finance MBA, I have spent the last 10-years in Operations Management so I figured I better get some guidance. I spoke with some folks at Edward Jones and Northwestern Mutual...very little insight but a lot of fees. This book was highlighted in an article in SmartMoney and I immediately bought it (on-line of course!) The book has reaffirmed my decision on how to rollover and allocate my assets. Very intuitive, simple, and workable plan. It was $30 dollars and several hours well spent. The sections on rebalancing and value averaging would seem to work well with a systematic investing approach aimed at minimizing my time involvement and minimizing investing 'costs'. The analogy on buying tomatoes relates right back to the age old saying, 'buy low and sell high'. Enjoy and prosper.
