Overview

Fresh from inking their first financial bestseller, The Motley Fool Investment Guide, the brothers are back with another literate, easy-to-understand, and wickedly funny practical guide to taking control of your own money and multiplying it in the decades ahead. Centuries ago, the Fool was the royal court's colorful and humorous advisor - the only fellow who could speak the plain truth without having his head sliced off. Through their books and their online sites, the Gardners are performing the very same service for our modern-day financial world. Are you like most people - with little savings or unable to get a firm grip on your finances, much less master how to invest for a sound future? This book contains all the answers you'll need. It will help you conquer your debt and show you where and how to find the best investments ("Try looking in the fridge, for starters"), what to do with your IRA and 401(k), why there's only one mutual fund worth thinking about, and much more. Their message is that you have time and a brain and a vested interest, making you by far the best person to make your own financial decisions. This book guides you to making the right ones, while aiming to have you spend no more than a few hours a month thinking about your savings.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This sequel to the wildly popular The Motley Fool Investment Guide (S. & S., 1996) updates some of its previous information while offering a practical and humorous route to investing. (The original book continued to remain on best sellers lists through most of 1998.)
U.S. News and World Report
It aims right at generation X, the young adults who, according to one poll, are more likely to believe in UFOs than in the solvency of the Social Security system. This book, which is scheduled to come out early next month, focuses on the virtues of starting to invest early and finding ways to save instead of spend. Brothers Tom and David Gardner, the Motley Fools, explain the complexities of stock-market investing with the same mix of erudite cheekiness and didactic zeal that they have displayed for years on America Online and at their Internet site.
