Editorial Reviews

Economist
...[H]e puts his money on the jockey rather than the horse and so sets out...to pick the brains of the world�s most successful investment professionals. His title['s]...implied promise to provide readers with the keys to financial success is not kept. Mr Stern�s nine all-stars offer contradictory advice. John Bogle, the founder of the Vanguard Investment Group, champions the passive, or index, approach to investment. Louis Navellier, editor of MPT Review (MPT stands for modern portfolio theory), emphatically disagrees. �If we can�t beat the market, why are we here?� he asks.
