Overview

On October 21, 2004 Jason Apollo Voss had a true epiphany: there was going to be a near-collapse on Wall Street and he should retire to exclusively pursue a spiritual practice. In electing to honor his vision he gave up a career in which the mutual fund he co-managed bested the NASDAQ by 77.0%, the S&P 500 by 49.1%, and the DJIA by 34.9%. Most of this success came from a detailed, scientific understanding of the right brain and its capacity for creative and intuitive thought. These secrets and their real world application are the specific focus and passion of the Intuitive Investor. Much more than just a book about investing, The Intuitive Investor is also a guide to healthy, mindful living. Scarcely have money, mind and spirit been brought together so potently.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Voss, a former co-portfolio manager for an income fund, writes that in 2004 he foresaw the coming economic meltdown and decided to leave the stock market in order to "pursue spiritual interests." For those possibility misled by his title, this is neither Wall Street tell-all nor investment primer; it's about "tuning into the cosmic radio station," in order to counter "the persistence and strength of both egoic structures and dogmatic science," so that investors might make good decisions. Voss lays an early groundwork with seven assumptions: "consciousness and energy are the ground of reality; we are all interconnected in a cause and effect soup that some have referred to as the Field, the Totality..." Getting back somewhat more on message, Voss advocates right brain strategies such as giving heed to intuition when an investment doesn't feel right, and "focusing on risks before opportunities" as a dramatic way to improve investment results. An unlikely resource for navigating economic turmoil, but one that might appeal to new-age aficionados.
