Meet the Author

"The Money Game, written by one who signs himself 'Adam Smith' (and who some believe is Harvard-and-Oxford-trained George J. W. Goodman), is a modern-day classic. Like many modern paintings, the book looks simple. But as W. Somerset Maugham said about an unforgettable Mondrian abstraction: 'It looks as though you had only to take a ruler, a tube of black paint and a tube of red, and you could do the thing yourself. Try!' "—Professor Paul A. Samuelson, First American Nobel Prize Winner in Economics.

"Everyone who is anyone in U.S. investment already knows about 'Adam Smith,' " wrote Newsweek. 'Adam Smith' is also the author of Supermoney and Powers of Mind.

    Not As Fun As Expected

    There is lots of insight to the world of the stock market, but the title promised me a game and i haven't enjoyed playing it. There were also too many formulas and complicated things for me to really be interested, unless I was looking to become a portfolio manager or a security analyst. I also can't seem to take Mr. 'Smith' seriously, because it's not his real name. I would have been much happier just thinking his name actually was Adam Smith.

    Excellent Read.

    Caveats abound. Spend wisely. Inform yourself or stay out of the market is the major lesson here.
