Adventure Capitalist: the Ultimate Investor's Road Trip (Audio CD) by Jim Rogers (Audio CD - May 13 2003) ISBN-10: 0739303481

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly
Financier Rogers retired at 37 and motorcycled around the world, turning the trip into the book Investment Biker, a hybrid of business advice and travelogue. That journey, however, failed to squelch his wanderlust. Instead of enjoying his sedate life teaching finance, Rogers decided to take his fiancée and a souped-up Mercedes on a frighteningly intense road trip: three years, 116 countries and 152,000 miles. Like the car that plowed through snow, mud, sand and highways on every continent, Rogers's memoir of the journey is its own breed. Although Rogers writes, far too briefly, of life-changing events like getting married and hearing of his father's death, the book has an uncommon level of detachment. Also, even though Rogers shares investment advice and observations about the planet's political economies, his thoughts are too general to serve as business lessons. The result is an adventure tale without heart and a finance book without teeth. Rogers tries to make up for this by describing experiences like eating fried silkworms and watching prostitutes caught in the world's sex trade. Mainly, though, he chronicles prosaic details, like taking car ferries and talking to border guards, and then riffs on politics, money, immigration and culture.

The Alchemy of Finance : Reading the Mind of the Market. 2 CD's by George Soros (Audio CD - Jul 12 2000) ISBN-10: 1560150483

Rating:

From Library Journal
Soros, manager of the billion dollar Quantum Fund, certainly has credentials that merit attention to his personal approach to money management. As might be expected, he describes his so-called "theory of reflexivity" in a manner more appealing to serious market players than to the casual investor. Of more general interest is his account of a one-year real time series of investment decisions that resulted in his Quantum Fund more than doubling in value. Libraries serving a serious investment community should add this. Joseph Barth, U.S. Military Academy Lib.

 
The Automatic Millionaire Homeowner: a Powerful Plan to Finish Rich in Real Estate by David Bach (Audio CD - Mar 7 2006) ISBN-10: 0739324268

Rating:

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly
This follow-up to Bach's bestseller, The Automatic Millionaire, guides listeners step-by-step through the transformation from renter to homeowner to landlord. Bach's typical can-do attitude shines through, whether the book is outlining the pros and cons of various types of mortgages or sharing the story of one couple who used home equity as a gateway to financial independence and comfort in retirement. Unfortunately, the audio abridgment has a few glitches, including a misstep in the fifth chapter, which prematurely congratulates listeners on understanding what their credit report is, before knowing how to make sure it's accurate. This topic is not addressed until the following chapter ("Your Credit Score: The Holy Grail of Mortgage Lending"), so listeners may understandably be confused. Also, although actor Oliver Wyman has a beautiful voice, the slick Casey Kasem–style delivery feels wrong for a book that rightly keeps insisting that it is not a get-rich-quick scheme. Bach's solid and time-tested financial advice deserves better than this infomercialesque treatment, which seems more about style than the commonsense approach that is Bach's personal signature.

The Best Investment Advice I Ever Received : Priceless Wsdom From Warren Buffett, Jim Cramer, Suze Orman (Audio CD)  by Liz Claman (Audio CD - Nov 22 2006) ISBN-10: 1594836531

Not Rated

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly
If you can get beyond the tired investment aphorisms-"Save, save, save" and "Buy low and sell high" both make appearances-there is some solid counsel in CNBC anchor Claman's anthology of advice for the novice investor, but little that will help anyone already in the thick of the market. Following her entry on the three guiding principles of "the Greatest Investor of Our Time," Warren Buffett, Claman hands over the reins to a roster of almost 60 contributors, all fulltime professionals with impressive credentials, including some household names (Donald Trump among them). Many wisely advise beginning investors to rely upon their own knowledge, common sense, research and discipline, and to eschew relying upon their financial planner. Familiar arguments are given for investing in no-load index funds and abandoning fruitless quests to beat the market-the latter suggestion made in a nicely written anecdotal piece from John C. Bogle, founder of the Vanguard group. Others, including TV's Lawrence Kudlow, author Robert Kiyosaki, Proctor & Gamble CEO A.G. Lafley and "Adventure Capitalist" Jim Rogers provide a smorgasbord of similarly basic investment advice. Unfortunately, Claman's book is an informative introduction that doesn't carry any follow-through; investing in a more comprehensive guide would probably be sound advice for those seeking it.

Book Description
Journalist Greg Campbell leads the reader down the international diamond trail of brutality, horror, and profit - providing an on-the-ground and in-the-mines story of global consequence.

First discovered in 1930, the diamonds of Sierra Leone have funded one of the most savage rebel campaigns in modern history. These "blood diamonds" are smuggled out of West Africa and sold to legitimate diamond merchants in London, Antwerp, and New York, often with the complicity of the international diamond industry. Eventually, these very diamonds find their way into the rings and necklaces of brides and spouses the world over. Blood Diamonds is the gripping tale of how the diamond smuggling works, how the rebel war has effectively destroyed Sierra Leone and its people, and how the policies of the diamond industry - institutionalized in the 1880s by the De Beers cartel - have allowed it to happen. Award-winning journalist Greg Campbell traces the deadly trail of these diamonds, many of which are brought to the world market by fanatical enemies, including the Al Qaeda network. These repercussions of diamond smuggling are felt far beyond the borders of the poor and war-ridden country of Sierra Leone, and the consequences of overlooking this African tragedy, as the world has seen, are both shockingly deadly and unquestionably global. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

When the stock market booms--as it did through most of the 1990s--relatively inexperienced investors like to believe there's a new paradigm at work. That's why it's refreshing to take a look occasionally at how investors survived previous booms--and busts. What did the founders of Moody's, Value Line, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average think about the markets they were analyzing and attempting to quantify?

Product Description

From AudioFile
This insider's glimpse into the manipulative world of branding is sedately delivered by reader Lloyd James in a bland, occasionally smirking tone. This seems appropriate, as author Levine, a marketing guru, has "handled" movie star and rock star clients (Michael Jackson, among others), corporate public relations disasters, and major product launches. He's rather smug about it all. James walks us through the creation and cold-blooded branding of a fictional brand of ice cream to illustrate the "creation of a superbrand," a quasi- psy-ops project that requires marketers to second-guess every nuance of public response. While full of useful pointers, A BRANDED WORLD suffers from its manipulative approach to marketing.

From Amazon.com
Starting from scratch, simply by picking stocks and companies for investment, Warren Buffett amassed one of the epochal fortunes of the 20th century -- an astounding net worth of $10 billion and counting. That awesome record has made him a cult figure.

This illuminating biography reveals a man whose conscientiousness, integrity, and good humor exist alongside an odd emotional isolation. Buffett also masterfully traces his life: his enormously successful partnership; his early, inspired investments in American Express and Geico; his companionship and investment with Katharine Graham of the Washington Post; his role in the Capital Cities purchase of ABC; his unique relationship with his wife and mistress; and his rescue of the scandal-ridden Salomon Brothers. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Utilizing his 40 years of financial experience, and relying completely on his admitted bias for stocks, Schwab explains the ins and outs of planning an investment, choosing the components and bracing for taxes, putting the plan into action, and preparing for future developments.

From Amazon.com
What do Ted Turner and Rupert Murdoch want out of life? Apart from the usual pleasures--love, fortune, good health--they apparently want to control the world's media. And, to judge by this account, each wants the other's head on a platter.

"In another time, they might have dueled on a grassy plain with muskets, or faced each other at high noon at opposite ends of a dusty street, holsters slung low on their hips," writes media/entertainment pundit Hack. Turner and Murdoch have chosen to fight it out, with undisguised venom, in a singularly public venue--Turner through CNN and other networks, Murdoch through Sky and Fox TV, plus a host of magazines and newspapers. Turner espouses liberal views while Murdoch is a hard-line conservative, but both are supreme "controllers of information" and "manipulators of public opinion," according to Hack. Their fight has cost billions of dollars, and it's wounded more than a few bystanders. It has also, as Hack rightly notes, set the tone for the contemporary press, for the worse, sacrificing journalistic integrity in the interest of two "competing political agendas ... until there is one.

But despite likening the "ills and injustices suffered by mutual fund investors" to those "our forebears suffered under English tyranny," Bogle--founder of the Vanguard Group--makes a strong case for index funds with this exhaustive study of investing.

This program takes a fundamental view of what it takes to be a top-drawer business worthy of your investment dollar. It's based on traditional company variables like capitalization, market position, and labor relations, and some new variables like organizational adaptability and leadership depth and vision. The broad thinking and nuances are so intuitive and clearly drawn that listeners won't even realize how abstract and intelligent this writing is. The impressive piece of work is nicely abridged, and George Guidall is as connected to the material as anyone could be. Still, this is not for the cognitively challenged, nor for overly aggressive investors nor those with money hang-ups.

Day trading such stocks as Amazon.com, eBay, and Yahoo! sounds like a game for the gun slinger: jump into the fray and pull the trigger. Is that really the case? No, according to author Christopher Farrell, who earns his money just as Wall Street does--by making very small, short-term, high-percentage trades. Farrell, who works from home, has traded over 15,000,000 shares of stock via the Internet, producing a 65 percent annual return for his investment fund in its first year. Using detailed, user-friendly examples, Farrell shows how to place orders online and then sell minutes later for small profits that can potentially add up to thousands of dollars a day--if you pick the right stocks. He explains how the New York Stock Exchange allows traders to buy on the bid and sell at the offer, just like the professionals. Farrell also includes loads of tips, such as how to choose an online broker, how much to pay for commissions, and how to cope with a technology that's still in its infancy. If you've been thinking about joining the estimated 5 million online traders, then this book is for you. --Thom Hartle --This text refers to the Hardcover edition

Ric Edelman believes you can't create a truly effective personal finance plan until you really know what you want out of life. In Discover the Wealth Within You he shows how to develop a realistic series of individualized goals for your future, and then how to construct an investment program to help you realize them. Edelman, author of New York Times bestsellers Ordinary People, Extraordinary Wealth and The Truth About Money, draws on these books to explain why we're ultimately more successful with our financial agenda when we focus on it as a means to an array of unambiguous objectives (such as "see an event in person during the next Winter Olympics" or "have plastic surgery in three years") rather than vague long-range aspirations (like saving "for retirement" or to "buy a house"). In the first section he unveils a step-by-step process for determining the precise objectives that motivate us; in the second he points us toward a mutual-fund-based savings plan that should be easier to capitalize consistently because we know where it's taking us and when we'll get there. Incorporating a profusion of appropriate cartoon strips, inspirational testimonials, persuasive statistics, and an unusual assembly of footnotes that are as amusing as they are informative, Edelman offers a clear and innovative course of action that could turn even procrastinating wannabes into enthusiastic money managers. --Howard Rothman

Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything by Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner (Audio CD - Oct 5 2006) ISBN-10: 0061238538

Rating:

Amazon.com
Economics is not widely considered to be one of the sexier sciences. The annual Nobel Prize winner in that field never receives as much publicity as his or her compatriots in peace, literature, or physics. But if such slights are based on the notion that economics is dull, or that economists are concerned only with finance itself, Steven D. Levitt will change some minds. In Freakonomics (written with Stephen J. Dubner), Levitt argues that many apparent mysteries of everyday life don't need to be so mysterious: They could be illuminated and made even more fascinating by asking the right questions and drawing connections. For example, Levitt traces the drop in violent crime rates to a drop in violent criminals and, digging further, to the Roe v. Wade decision that preempted the existence of some people who would be born to poverty and hardship. Elsewhere, by analyzing data gathered from innercity Chicago drug-dealing gangs, Levitt outlines a corporate structure much like McDonald's, where the top bosses make great money while scores of underlings make something below minimum wage. And in a section that may alarm or relieve worried parents, Levitt argues that parenting methods don't really matter much and that a backyard swimming pool is much more dangerous than a gun. These enlightening chapters are separated by effusive passages from Dubner's 2003 profile of Levitt in The New York Times Magazine, which led to the book being written. In a book filled with bold logic, such back-patting veers Freakonomics, however briefly, away from what Levitt actually has to say. Although maybe there's a good economic reason for that too, and we're just not getting it yet. --John Moe

Greed is Good: The Capitalist Pig Guide to Investing by Jonathan Hoenig (Audio Cassette - May 6 1999) ISBN-10: 0694521647

Rating:

 

From Amazon.com
Greed, in Jonathan Hoenig's estimation, is passion. It's lust. It has nothing to do with single-minded accumulation and everything to do with freedom, with the ability to pursue the things that make you happy. Hoenig received his first real introduction to greed while working at Starbucks as a teenager. He found that the money he earned after buying a few shares of Starbucks stock greatly exceeded what he made as an after-school wage slave. While in college, he started a radio show called Capitalist Pig, which now plays in 18 states. Greed has been good to Hoenig.

In Greed Is Good, he wants to share the wealth with his post-baby-boom generation by preaching the gospel of investing. But investing isn't just about choosing mutual fund A over mutual fund B. It's about not spending money on useless stuff, leaving more money for the things that are meaningful. Hoenig understands how frills like designer clothes, CDs, and, yes, Starbucks coffee can seem like necessities, when really they're lifestyle add-ons that can be eliminated. Doing without such excesses can be painful, but that's something else Hoenig believes in; not only is greed good, so is discipline, sacrifice, and self-denial. Greed is written in an eclectic style that includes Yiddish phrases, street slang, and generational cultural references ("Whatchu talkin' 'bout, Willis?"), which serves two purposes: it's very entertaining to read, and renders the often-dry message of "Save and invest" infinitely more palatable. --Lou Schuler --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title

Rating:

 

From Amazon.com
From the school of unemotional investing comes the classic How to Make Money in Stocks, by Wall Street analyst and publisher William O'Neil. Readers new to securities will find it an excellent primer, one that relies on time-honored indicators such as quarterly earnings, market capitalization, and daily indexes. O'Neil's study of winning stocks stretches back to the 1960s, and he shares his insights here, describing what characterizes a growth stock, when to cut your losses (at 7 or 8 percent, no more), and how to spot a market top.

The techniques in How to Make Money in Stocks are hardly revolutionary, but therein lies their strength, as O'Neil claims his is "a winning system in good times or bad." Investors interested in Net stocks might be disappointed--the author's first rule is that a company must show a pattern of growing profits, which disqualifies many dot coms. (Try Rule Breakers, Rule Makers for a different take.) O'Neil's approach to stocks is, above all, rational, and he pays little heed to market hype.

Those new to investing would do well to read this book before embarking, and even more seasoned traders may find How to Make Money in Stocks a refreshing return to basics. Markets may swing bull and bear, but O'Neil promises to stand firm. --Demian McLean --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

In the investment-management business, it's best to take bows quickly. Unless, of course, you're John Neff, a living legend, who as manager of Vanguard's Windsor Fund beat the market in 22 out of 31 years. Neff grew Windsor to become the largest mutual fund by combing the bargain basement for quality merchandise and selling as other investors caught on. In John Neff on Investing, he explains how he scoured the daily list of stocks hitting new lows, the "dusty rag and bone shop of the market," to find out-of-favor companies with low price/earnings ratios, those growing faster than seven percent a year, that paid generous dividends. He shows how to distinguish misunderstood and overlooked stocks from those with lackluster prospects.

 
The Little Book That Beats the Market The Little Book That Beats the Market by Joel Greenblatt and Adam Grupper (Audio CD - Jan 30 2006) ISBN-10: 0743555856

Rating:

From Publishers Weekly
Contrary to efficient-market naysayers, this engaging investment primer contends that ordinary stock-market investors can indeed get better-than-market returns over the long haul. Greenblatt (You Can Be a Stock Market Genius), a Columbia Business School adjunct professor, touts a "value-oriented" approach that looks for bargain stocks whose share price is cheap relative to the company's profitability. His version is a "magic formula" that ranks stocks on the basis of two variables—the earnings yield and the business's return on capital. His Web site, magicformulainvesting.com, virtually automates the procedure for novices. Greenblatt offers lots of statistical proof of the formula's success, but emphasizes the importance of faith in seeing the investor through inevitable short-term downturns: "It will be your belief in the overwhelming logic of the magic formula that will make the formula work for you in the long run." He conveys his ideas through a lucid if rudimentary and rather corny explanation of basic investment concepts about risk, return, interest and business valuation. Although the fabulous returns he touts seem too good to be true, Greenblatt's formula is a reasonable variant of mainstream value-investing methods. Investors seeking a little more hands-on excitement than the average mutual fund offers won't go too far wrong following his advice. (Jan.)

Williamson, an attorney and financial planner, this book provides a good overview of the many investment avenues available, from mutual funds and stocks to annuities and real estate. Williamson looks at the financial mistakes that many tend to make (such as buying a new car every few years and investing too conservatively) and explodes common myths about retirement (guess what--most of us will be living and working longer than we think).

Since then, the stock market has boomed and crashed, the economy has sunk in and out of recession, and millions of investors (including the Fools) have watched their stock portfolios shrink. In What to Do with Your Money Now, the Gardner brothers draw lessons from the mistakes that lead to the bust and offer a plethora of advice aimed at guiding investors in this more sober economic environment. Much of what they recommend echoes the practical advice offered in their earlier books (e.g., create a financial plan, get out of debt), while other prescriptions offer a truer reflection of the times (e.g., consider CDs, invest in high-dividend stocks as well as bond and index funds).

In NetWorth, Frank sorts through the wreckage of the dot-com crash and offers a framework by which savvy investors can assess who the winners will be in the next few years. Frank's basic premise: the Internet is here to stay, and that every company will in some way soon be an Internet company. He begins the book with an insightful chapter on the merger of AOL and Time Warner, calling the new company "the paradigm of the new economy." Frank then examines all the categories of Internet stocks and the companies within, including consumer (Amazon.com, Yahoo!, E-Trade), business to business (Ariba, I2, DoubleClick), and infrastructure companies (Akamai, Oracle, VeriSign). In all, NetWorth is a useful overview of this downtrodden sector that should interest anyone with a long investing horizon and a contrarian point of view. --Harry C.

The New Golden Age: The Coming Revolution Against Political Corruption and Economic Chaos by Ravi Batra and Brian Emerson (Audio CD - Jan 2007) ISBN-10: 0786161914

No Rating

From Publishers Weekly
After nearly 20 years of predicting economic disaster, Batra (Greenspan's Fraud, etc.) suggests a reversal, though only after we rise up in revolution against the forces of chaos. This time, he charges politicians, academics, business executives and rich people with "corruption," defined as "any policy that enriches the rich and impoverishes the poor and the middle class." Among the practices Batra censures are raising congressional pay but not the minimum wage, and cutting income taxes while increasing Social Security taxes. Though the analysis is keen and provocative and the conclusions unorthodox as ever, his specific economic predictions aren't likely to be any better than those in his 11 previous books. Though he admits that "three or four" of his previous predictions "have been wrong," and "the cycle of depression has misfired," he gives no specifics. His examples of successful predictions sidestep his previous books, citing anecdotes from unrecorded private conversations. Some readers might wish Batra would stick to analysis and exposition, at which he excels, and leave off the name-calling and the wild predictions that mar this effort. (Feb.)

Book Description

The astonishing true story of America's first and greatest "War on Crime."

In Public Enemies, Bryan Burrough strips away a thick layer of myths put out by J. Edgar Hoover's FBI to tell the full story of the most spectacular crime wave in American history, the two-year battle between the young Hoover and an assortment of criminals who became national icons: John Dillinger, Machine Gun Kelly, Bonnie and Clyde, Baby Face Nelson, Pretty Boy Floyd, and the Barkers.

In 1933, police jurisdictions ended at state lines, the FBI was in its infancy, and fast cars and machine guns were easily available. It was a great time to be a bank robber. On hand were a motley crew of criminal masterminds, sociopaths, romantics, and cretins.

Bryan Burrough has unearthed an extraordinary amount of new material on all the major figures involved -- revealing many fascinating interconnections in the vast underworld ecosystem that stretched from Texas up to Minnesota.

But the real-life connections were insignificant next to the sense of connectedness J. Edgar Hoover worked to create in the mind of the American public-using the "Great Crime Wave" to gain the position of untouchable power he would occupy for almost half a century.

From Amazon.com
The rich are different from the rest of us, if for no other reason than U.S. tax and securities laws allow them to invest in ways that keep us from catching up to them. That's why 90 percent of all corporate shares of stock are owned by 10 percent of the people. Kiyosaki believes it's possible for anyone to move up into that 10 percent, but it takes a different view of investing than most people have: it takes a plan to be a successful investor. And a plan is more than simply buying and selling, or collecting "assets" that bring in no cash and are thus more akin to liabilities. The way most people invest, "they might as well be pushing a wheelbarrow in a circle," he writes. A plan is "mechanical, automatic, and boring," a formula for success that has worked historically for most of those who've used it. Kiyosaki's "rich dad" (actually, the father of his best friend) tells him the simplest analogy is the game Monopoly: buy four green houses, trade them for one red hotel, and repeat until you become rich.

From Booklist
The eighth book in the Rich Dad series reveals the financial wisdom of the rich, which is neither taught in schools nor discussed in the popular financial press. The authors begin with an example of the Zen master-student relationship that Kiyosaki had with his Rich Dad mentor. Kiyosaki had made the mistake of many inexperienced investors and bought into a mutual fund he knew nothing about; his Rich Dad let him stay with the bad investment for months to learn the lesson of patience. Kiyosaki also learned that the common advice to "invest for the long term, buy, hold and diversify" is not really advice but actually a sales pitch, and it teaches very little about how to become a smart investor. The reason most people continue to choose mutual-fund investing is because it is so easy, and that is also why it is inherently risky. Kiyosaki and his coauthor emphasize investing in asset classes other than equities, such as a business venture, real estate, and paper assets like hedge funds and options. These approaches require more thought, education, and effort than does simply handing one's money over to a financial company and allowing a stranger to control it, but the risks are lower and the potential financial rewards can be much greater. Certain to be in demand at the circulation desk. David Siegfried

The Savage Truth on Money The Savage Truth on Money by Terry Savage and Anna Fields (Audio CD - Sep 2000) ISBN-10: 0786198532

From Amazon.com
Whether it's the invisible chat room jockey pumping penny stocks or the silver-haired Peter Lynch hawking Fidelity Investments, finding financial advice these days is pretty easy, and for most of us the real problem is not getting advice, it's getting good advice. Which is something that Terry Savage dispenses in good measure in The Savage Truth on Money.

It's not that Savage has found a new way to get rich. She hasn't. What makes this book work is her commonsense approach to attaining financial security. At the heart of Savage's advice is the notion that getting ahead is a matter of "self-discipline," which "means making knowledgeable decisions based on a rational assessment of likely results and then sticking to your decisions in the face of emotional upheaval." Forget about sticking your head in the sand--for Savage, knowledge is power, and knowledge begins when you examine your own relationship to money. She encourages getting online as way to manage your finances, educate yourself, and seek out new opportunities. The book is filled with insights on topics such as risk management, investing in mutual funds, saving for college, and buying insurance.

Savage's experience as a financial journalist (print, television, online), stockbroker, the first woman member of the Chicago Board Options Exchange, as well as her service on the Board of Directors of McDonald's and Devon Energy Corporation brings a air of credibility that's hard to find in books of this ilk. The Savage Truth on Money is for people who think seriously about their money, no matter how smart they think they are. --Harry C.

It's no secret that most mutual funds fail to beat the performance of the S&P 500. And if the pros can't beat the averages, it's not unreasonable to assume that most individual investors can't, either. Why? According to Robert Hagstrom, author of The Warren Buffett Portfolio, a big reason is the industry's emphasis on diversification. In the interest of minimizing risk, many investors have "become intellectually numb to its inevitable consequence: mediocre results." As a result, they wind up owning too many stocks and churn their portfolios unnecessarily (for example, the average mutual fund holds 100 stocks and turns over 80 percent of its portfolio annually). In The Warren Buffett Portfolio, Hagstrom shows how Buffett and others use the idea of focus investing to organize winning portfolios.

Your Money Matters: 21 Tips for Achieving Financial Security in the 21st Century Your Money Matters: 21 Tips for Achieving Financial Security in the 21st Century by Jonathan Pond (Audio Cassette - Jan 2000) ISBN-10: 0671047949

Rating:

From Amazon.com
Your Money Matters, by prolific financial author and TV commentator Jonathan Pond, proposes a 21-point money-management program for those nearing retirement age as well as those for whom retirement is still a distant consideration. With humor and a clever division of the particulars into tip-packed chapters bearing such titles as "Live Beneath Your Means (Without Depriving Yourself)," "Learn How to Tolerate Your Loved One's Annoying Financial Habits," and "Bulls Make Money, Bears Make Money, but Pigs and Lambs Get Slaughtered," Pond dispenses a wealth of practical data on handling "the most important financial matters that you'll need to attend to in the 21st century." A bold claim, but one backed up with a slew of sensible suggestions for increasing your savings and apportioning the resultant nest egg to provide comfortably for your future needs. Along the way, Pond offers opinions and outlines applicable strategies on issues including technology stocks as a viable investment, the need for long-term-care insurance, and the best ways to fund a child's education or the care for an aging parent. He also includes pointers to pages on his Web site that offer additional information on health-insurance plans, home-equity loans, investment-allocation procedures, and many other supportive issues. --Howard Rothman
