Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - BookSmack!
Cash has been the chief dude concern since The Colonies demonetized wampum in 1663, and every dude I know is at best four paychecks away from complete devastation. Wise Men Stein (yes, both a respected economist and spaker of "Bueller") and DeMuth (his epigram isn't as exciting) have written a timely, understandable, and down-to-earth book for those of us who can't comprehend market derivatives and probably wouldn't like them if we could. It offers cogent, understandable, and simple strategies and explanations without being simplistic (I am so tired of being insulted by authors who think I play Lotto and lease a Lexus, thanks David Bach). It's also enjoyably snarky, like their list of how NOT to invest (e.g., "find a brilliant, prestigious financial advisor like Bernard Madoff or John Stanford"). Self-reliance, brothers, is key to lining our lairs with dollar bills; keeping control of and tabs on your hard-earned money is your own responsibility. The authors point out that Wall Street, which exists to make money for Wall Street, not you, will in fact piss away your money and then laugh at you. Though they do it in much nicer terms. There is advice on home ownership, investing, retirement, taxes, and that you don't have to sell your kidney to woo Margaret Thatcher; just offer her port wine. "Since the contingency of being old, sick, defenseless, and poor is too horrible even to imagine, everything dictates that we err on the side of oversaving." — Douglas Lord, "Books for Dudes," Booksmack! 1/6/11

    Ben Stein the master of finance!!

    I have read a number of Ben's books on investing. He is so right even though I haven't always followed his advice to my detriment! This book is very concise and informative.

    a must read for parents and students

    We found this book informative and written with humor even though a serious matter. My husband and I both read the book and we are going to send copies to each of our teenage grandchildren for the future educational and vocational guidance .

    A Great Guideline

    I would recommend this book to a person just starting out in investing. I would also recommend anyone already in the stock market to read this book to see if you need to make any changes.
