An inspirational, low-stress way to financial security

in 1998, Bill Schultheis wrote a simple investment book for people who felt overwhelmed by the bull market. He had discovered that when you simplify your investment decisions, you end up getting better returns. As a bonus, you gain more time for family, friends, and other pursuits.

A decade later, through good times and bad, this philosophy has been proven to tower above the daily chatter of Wall Street. And the revised and expanded edition of his book is more valuable than ever.

In a conversational style, Schultheis explains why we should stop thinking about cool stocks, hot mutual funds, trends in interest rates, and predictions for the economy. Stop trying to beat the stock market average; just remember three simple principles:

• Don't put all your eggs in one basket
• There's no such thing as a free lunch
• Save for a rainy day

The New Coffeehouse Investor will help readers get their finances in shape quickly and painlessly.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

This is the revised and expanded edition of financial adviser Schultheis's very popular 1998 book. In a chatty style, he lays out the tenets of successful long-term investing. His advice is to save early, diversify investments, keep costs low, and ride out short-term market volatility. Though his book covers the well-trodden ground of broad-based index fund investing, his sprightly and up-to-date text and charts will gently inform, reassure, and even entertain those in need of financial help. There are lots of metaphors here, as with Allan Roth's How a Second Grader Beats Wall Street(reviewed above), but the coffeehouse informality-and asides on mountain climbing-lays out a more general lifestyle approach to investing. Readers who can get past the metaphors will find this a good book.
