“ Mindboggling.  How the authors managed to get so much good information and advice into How To Invest is a mystery to me, but they did. Despite the time that many investors spend on more complicated investments,  the authors remind us that a keep-it-simple framework is more than adequate to sustain an investor's spending plans…..
If you only have one book in your investing library, make it this one.”
