9780071623940: The Investing Revolutionaries: How the World's Greatest Investors Take on Wall Street and Win in Any Market

Over the past five years, James Whiddon has interviewed some of the world’s brightest, best, and most influential men and women in finance on his popular radio show, The Investing Revolution. While the topics under discussion have ranged widely, the show’s mission has remained constant: Reveal the truth about how Wall Street has rigged the game so that it always wins—at everyone else’s expense—and offer investors an alternative to Wall Street to help them participate directly in free market capitalism and achieve astonishing longterm gains.

In The Investing Revolutionaries, Whiddon distills all of that financial genius into a witty, wise elixir guaranteed to cure what ails your aching portfolio. Indispensable reading for professional and retail investors who want to free themselves from the tyranny of the Wall Street status quo, it delivers the insights of a host of luminaries, including John Bogle, Michael Mauboussin, Mohamed El-Erian, Richard Thaler, and Jeremy Siegel. Each financial powerhouse featured in the book weighs in on the slick marketing ploys, statistical sleights of hand, and psychological button-pushing the denizens of Lower Manhattan routinely employ to separate you from your money. They also offer priceless tips on such topics as

  • The advantages of passive versus active portfolio management (how to achieve stellar gains through superdiversification)
  • Global investing (is China really a good investment?)
  • Avoiding common behavioral traps (running with the herd will get you gored)

Forget about stock picking and market timing. Say farewell to mutual fund gurus and the hyperbolic claims of the technical wizards. Investors of the world, you have nothing to lose but your chains. And now The Investing Revolutionaries provides you with the key.

From the Back Cover:

You can keep playing Wall Street’s game—or you can make your own rules

“Whiddon has done it again! He has added to the Short-List-of-Really-Good-Books-on-Investing. An easy read, [this book] introduces us to the real heroes of investing. The Investing Revolutionaries belongs on your investing bookshelf with Bernstein, Bogle, Solin, and Tobias.”
—Scott Burns, Universal Press Syndicate

“A great collection of interviews. The most respected names in the financial services industry have talked to Jim and answered investors’ most frequently asked questions.”
—Bob McTeer, former president and CEO of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas

“The money managers that tell you they can ‘beat the market’ are the tyrants of Wall Street. Here’s a straight-talking yet powerful guide to growing your wealth through passive stock market investing.”
—Marvin Zonis, professor emeritus, booth Graduate School of Business at the University of Chicago

“A colorful collection of interviews and conversations with today’s leading economic players. Whiddon and Knotts have enhanced the discussion that Americans must have in order to create real change.”
—Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House
