9780743506564: The Motley Fool Investment Guide: How The Fool Beats Wall Streets Wise Men And How You Can Too

Should you let a Fool tell you where to invest your money? If he's a Motley Fool, the answer is a resounding yes! Meet David and Tom Gardner, the two brothers who launched The Motley Fool, the most successful investment information service ever to grace cyberspace. The Gardners goal was and is simple: to beat the market and show other investors how to do it, including those who didn't know a dividend from a divining rod.

The Motley Fool Investment Guide contains everything the Fools have learned from their time online about what investors really need to know to find the best investment possibilities. They show you just how powerful the information revolution can make you, the individual investor. Plus, they supply all the investment tools you need to beat the market, the hottest sources of the news you need to make your investment decisions, and a healthy skepticism about conventional wisdom.

With its online portfolio increasing in value by more than 58% in its first year, The Motley Fool has already proved that there's a whole new game on Wall Street. Here, in your hands is all you'll ever need to discover exactly how the small investor can work wonders, have fun, and win big profits.

"Thanks to online communication," say David and Thomas Gardner, founders of the Motley Fool investment Web site, "it is now little-guy investors, not huge-guy brokerage firms, who hold the most valuable cards." The Gardners, narrating their own Guide, lay out their Foolish market-beating techniques like the college economics instructors you wish you'd had. They explain, in everyday language (and with just the right touch of sarcasm), exactly why some people do better than others when they invest their money. Most important, they tell how you can be one of the few who do better. (Running time: 1.5 hours, one cassette) --Lou Schuler
