getAbstract recommends this excellent, straightforward, hype-free and solidly grounded guide to investing. Research analyst and investment advisor Alexander Green draws on portfolio management methods used by the world's biggest institutional investors. He goes straight to the basics, emphasizing financial discipline, saving and awareness of costs. The portfolio he recommends consists entirely of low-cost Vanguard mutual funds, mostly index funds. He recommends keeping 70% of your portfolio in stocks. That recommendation may seem risky, especially in view of volatile stock market performance. However, he cites historical and financial research to demonstrate that, over time, equities have been the highest returning class of investments, even during such catastrophes as the Great Depression. This kind of straight talk is an excellent prophylactic against both the panic of crashes and the euphoria of bubbles.

This book provided a very good comparison of ETF and index investing for individual investors wishing to use an asset allocation method. It also provided an asset allocation model that includes some assets not typically seen in a traditional asset allocation model, such as gold and REIT's. Gold and REIT's have not been negatively correlated with stocks over the past year, therefore, the reason for including them in the model did not hold true recently, but should do well during many stock market downturns. Some degree of market timing would have also been useful, but I have the benefit of 2008 hindsight that Mr. Green did not have while writing the book. Overall, I would highly recommend this book for an individual investor, and I think the model would perform quite well during most investment periods.
