    Timely Advice

    I have read many investment books, but this is the first one that was both intelligent and easy to understand. No Wallstreet-speak here. Just a very honest accounting of what has happened to get us in the mess we are in, and how we as investors can protect our assets in this time. I HIGHLY recommend this work. Well done Mr. Coby.
