Praise for Winning the Loser's Game:
"This is by far the best book on investment policy and management."Peter Drucker
"Ellis has written a liberating book about investiing. Many people view their estate planning as a dirty secret they don't even share openly with themselves. This book will enable you to face your money matters squarely, with intelligence and vision, and help you create a plan that will increase the security and freedom of your later years."Byron R. Wien, Morgan Stanley Dean Witter
"Ellis's earlier work was a 'must read' for professional portfolio managers. This clearly-written edition explores concepts essential to both institutional and individual investors. It is not a simplistic 'do-it-yourself' cookbook, but an elegant guide to investment truths and paradoxes."Abby Joseph Cohen, Stock Market Strategist and Managing Director, Goldman, Sachs & Co.
"Charles Ellis lays out a series of simple principles which, if followed consistently, auger for success. In a highly entertaining way, he also offers not only a sound philosophy for investing, but also for life."Charles I. Clough, Jr., Corporate Strategy and Research, Merrill Lynch

"...How to make your capital win for you in today's more challenging investment climate."Eric Miller, Chief Investment Officer, Research Department, Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette
