In The Battle for Investment Survival, the goal is to preserve your capital at all costs, and to win is to "make a killing without being killed." Originally written in 1935, The Battle for Investment Survival treats investors to a straightforward account of how to profit--and how to avoid profit loss--in what Loeb would describe as the constant tug-of-war between rising and falling markets. "Most of today's advisors are telling us to diversify into stocks, bonds, foreign stocks, and perhaps gold, to spread the risk; Loeb tells us to put all our eggs in one basket, and watch the basket" (John Rothchild).
