Book review: Investing Successfully

Review...

A short and sweet book review today!

I read this excellent 300-page book in two sittings this week.

Yardney dispenses more than 40 years of investment wisdom is one easy read.


Click the links above to get a breakdown of what is included and covered.

What I liked most of all about this book most is that it carefully steers you away from get rich quick schemes and encourages you to focus on achievable long term goals. 

The exasperating thing about reading books like this is that it makes one wonder why the basic principles of saving, compounding, and investing aren't taught to us at school.

Or in many cases, at all!

After all, the information is out there and easily available. 

I really don't know what the answer is to that.

But either way, do yourself a favour and get a copy of this fantastic read when it hits the bookshelves.
