For over thirty years, Burton G. Malkiel's informative, irreverent, and gimmick-free books, "the best investment advice money can buy," have been the first places investors turn to understand the market and to use it to their best advantage. With this concise new guide, Malkiel takes the mystery out of the money game by distilling his reliable plan into ten easy-to-follow rules. Beginning with the basics--"Fire your investment adviser" and "Start now"--Malkiel carefully and with no small measure of humor lays out the rest of his plan, including such rules as "#3: Stiff the Tax Collector" and "#8: The Market Is Smarter than You Are." This 200-page guide is essential for anyone starting a portfolio, rebuilding after the dot-com crash, or simply looking for reassurance in the puzzling world of personal finance.
