"There is a three-headed hydra that stands between you and success in the financial markets.
"It’s April 10, 2014 and I’m sitting here in the airport in Bangkok, waiting for my flight to Egypt and then home. It’s been 7 months since I landed in Bangkok and I’ve done - and learned - a great deal in that time. Our flight plus connection home is going to be about 41 hours long, so I’ve decided to take some of that time to write out what I consider to be a practical guide for new investors. The result is the book you have in front of you. It’s not pretty. There are likely many problems with my grammar, but the ideas expressed here are sound. I hope you find them useful..."
Patrick Doyle has worked as a financial advisor for over 10 years. In this quick read, Patrick explains the world of financial markets faced by Canadians that he's come to know so well over the years. The book was written in 16 of the 41-hour trip that took him from the airports of Bangkok to Cairo and finally back home to Toronto. Patrick talks about the many obstacles faced by the individual investor, and offers a blueprint for success. Some of the issues he covers include how to tame your financial advisor, how to tame the markets, and how to tame yourself.

About the Author
Patrick Doyle, MBA, is a former investment advisor with over ten years experience in the industry. He now invests for himself using the principles espoused by Joel Greenblatt, Wesley Gray and Tobias Carlisle. He believes that the only ‘talking head’ worth listening to is Joad Cressbeckler of the Cressbeckler Stance (in particular Cressbeckler’s insightful piece on “wrath minded taters”). Patrick will announce the name of the first person to send an email back with the line from The Big Lebowski (greatest film ever made) embedded in this book on his YouTube channel, CapitalRev. To relax Patrick plays chess, draws (badly), hikes and reads history, economics and award winning science fiction. He is working toward achieving his CFA designation, after which he promises to write a more comprehensive book on investing.
