Overview

What if there were a way to cut through all the financial mumbo-jumbo? Wouldn't it be great if someone could really explain to us-in plain and simple English-the basics we must know about investing in order to insure our financial freedom?

At last, here's good news.

Jargon-free and written for all investors-experienced, beginner, and everyone in between-THE INVESTMENT ANSWER distills the process into just five decisions-five straightforward choices that can lead to safe and sound ways to manage your money.
When Wall Street veteran Gordon Murray told his good friend and financial advisor, Dan Goldie, that he had only six months to live, Dan responded, "Do you want to write that book you've always wanted to do?" The result is this eminently valuable primer which can be read and understood in one sitting, and has advice that benefits you, not Wall Street and the rest of the traditional financial services industry.
THE INVESTMENT ANSWER asks readers to make five basic but key decisions to stack the investment odds in their favor. The advice is simple, easy-to-follow, and effective, and can lead to a more profitable portfolio for every investor. Specifically:
* Should I invest on my own or seek help from an investment professional?
* How should I allocate my investments among stocks, bonds, and cash?
* Which specific asset classes within these broad categories should I include in my portfolio?
* Should I take an actively managed approach to investing, or follow a passive alternative?
* When should I sell assets and when should I buy more?

In a world of fast-talking traders who believe that they can game the system and a market characterized by instability, this extraordinary and timely book offers guidance every investor should have.

    A foundational read!

    This book is undoubtedly the starting point for any investor; not intended as an investing bible, but a synopsis of necessary basics and therefore a launching pad. An easy read in one sitting and you'll find yourself time and time again concurring with the concepts presented as common sense, yet often neglected. The benefit of the brevity and structure of such a book encourages frequent review, which is necessary for all investors. Can't recommend it enough!

    Very Basic

    I am very sorry the author has brain cancer. Yet this book is a very simple version what is already out there in the investment world and is only 60 some pages long. Basically says split up your investments to diversify and rebalance. Very common practice and no secrets here. Maybe I should go into book writing and make bunches of money. Must be better than investing since everyone is doing it lately. These current markets has everyone scared as hell including me and why I wasted my money. I have seen his graphs in many, many other books.

    Solid foundation

    This is a good solid foundation for investors. It is meant to be read in one session. That is very uncommon for an investment book. This is not necessarily a magic bullet but can serve you well. Highly recommended for anybody looking for strong primer.
