"Many investors lack understanding of the fixed income markets, which is unfortunate given their importance as an economic driver and as an asset class in individual portfolios. Reading Hank Cunningham’s book In Your Best Interest is a great place to build that knowledge. It’s full of excellent information and advice that’s presented in a smart and highly readable format. If you want to learn more about the fixed-income markets and how they really work, Hank’s book is a must read!"
