Overview

America's most authoritative markets team reveals what lessons from the past still work, what received wisdom has expired, and how to create a winning portfolio for the long run

Americans are now so involved in stocks that the value of investments in the market exceeds investments in our homes. Instead of relying on pensions and Social Security, baby boomers depend on investing for a secure retirement. And investing is cheaper and easier than ever before. But in the past five years, just as investing prowess has become essential, the rules of the game seem to have changed. How can investors safely and confidently play the markets when even George Soros and Warren Buffett admit they're at a loss?

In chapters written exclusively and originally for this book, Gretchen Morgenson, Floyd Norris and other top markets correspondents of The New York Times offer today's smartest thinking on money and markets, helping readers chart investment strategies that will outlast the market's inevitable booms and slumps. They detail the changes in the market—and the opportunities and risks that await investors. They help the reader assess investment strategies based on goals, career, and stage in life as well as the shifting economy. And they provide indispensable analysis and tools for picking stocks, mutual funds, bonds, and international investments—including advice for limiting tax bills, one of the easiest, lowest-cost ways to improve investments.

The New Rules of Personal Investing is the expert source demystifying the market for successful and intelligent financial management in the new economy.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The financial correspondents of The New York Times -- people like Kurt Eichenwald, Gretchen Morgenson, and Floyd Norris -- collaborated to produce this fact-filled volume, which covers everything from mutual funds to bonds, taxes, and international investments. Each journalist tackles a different topic, and the result is an informative, wide-ranging, and highly useful book that is sure to appeal to the intermediate-to-advanced investor.
Publishers Weekly
Financial correspondents of the New York Times come together to offer authoritative investment advice, since "dollars do better when they are accompanied by sense." In the aftermath of the dot-com shakeout, investors have realized that since the future market looks rocky and international economies have weakened, it is now crucial to re-evaluate investment strategies to determine the nature of different market changes, for example, or to reconsider traditional financial policies. Yet individual investors must still maximize their investments' potential, use the smartest strategies and recognize that they will need to rely on their own investment portfolios rather than traditional pensions.This book walks readers through key investing topics, including stocks, mutual funds, bonds and asset allocation. The writing is lucid and efficient, as one would expect from these staffers, and occasionally conversational. Discussing long-term strategies, Kurt Eichenwald states, "Basically, whether you want to or not, if you are planning to be anything other than poor in your golden years, you will become a money manager sometime in your life. The only question is when." The information, too, is solid and practical. The authors offer the kinds of opinions and advice don't put much money over the tax-deferral limit into a 401(k), for instance that is often absent in personal finance books. While this work's respected imprimatur will appeal to readers, some may be disappointed that it is more a primer than a sophisticated investing guide. (Jan. 6) Forecast: With the New York Times logo on its jacket and the Times Books marking on its spine, this volume will have no trouble attracting those whose NewYear's resolution is to get their finances in order. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
The assistant editor of the New York Times's Sunday "Money & Business" pages and editor of the paper's "Mutual Fund Quarterly," Myerson, along with eight other financial writers from the Times, gives the reader an up-to-date primer on investing. The authors discuss such topics as long-term investments, stocks, mutual funds, bonds, the global market, and taxes. They also provide a thought-provoking discussion on what to be aware of regarding traps, scams, and investing myths. While some of the material has been covered in other investment publications, many of which are still available (e.g., Eric Tyson's Investing for Dummies, Hungry Minds, 1999), the caveats and advice offered by this book are very timely. New ways of looking at diversification, for example, are included along with advice regarding international investing, current tax implications especially in regard to estate planning and the role of bonds (corporate, municipal, U.S. Treasury, and savings bonds) in a portfolio. Easy-to-read charts support the findings and views of the contributors. A good choice for public libraries. Steven J. Mayover, Philadelphia Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
