Most Helpful Customer Reviews
For the investor who wants to find out what the academic community is saying about investing, what really works and what doesn't, then this is the first book to turn to. Easy to read and fully footnoted, the reader is presented with the details on where academics see investing today, and where investing is going in the future. All this without having to wade through pages of financial formulas and proofs which frequently are more confusing than helpful. Should be standard reading for anyone who is investing on their own, or who wants to learn more about what investment advisors should know to do their jobs. Excellent!
