First edition of this work on investing by two of the world’s greatest financial thinkers. Octavo, original boards. Signed by the co-author on the front free endpaper, “With best wishes Burt Malkiel.” Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Michael J. Freeland.
Written with every investor in mind, this short, straight-talking book skillfully offers a set of simple, yet powerful thoughts on how to avoid Mr. Market and his "loser's game," and instead enjoy the "winner's game" approach to investing. All the investment rules and principles you need to know are here—with clear advice on how to follow them. Divided into six essential elements of investing, this little book packs a big message that can help secure your financial future all the way through retirement. Malkiel and Ellis touch on a variety of topics, from focusing on the long term instead of following market fluctuations to using employer-sponsored plans to supercharge your savings and minimize taxes. Along the way, they also address the best friends of any investor: diversification, rebalancing, dollar-cost averaging, and indexing. "These noted authors have distilled all you need to know about investing into a very small package. The best time to read this book is when you turn eighteen (or maybe thirteen) and every year thereafter" (Harry Markowitz).
