Guest More than 1 year ago
Aimed at investors over 50 years of age, this book is filled with conservative advice for everyone. This is not your typical investment book, as it issues warnings and caveats for investors. In light of recent events, the author's warnings should be taken seriously. The savings and loan debacle, the collapse of several insurance companies, and recent corporate bankruptcies (Enron, World Com etc) demonstrate the world has not been safe for investors. The author's position is that the investment world has many dangerous offerings for the investor who does not do careful research.
