From the Publisher:


"This book reveals so much in such a direct, plain manner and yet delivers comparisons in absolutely descriptive phrases that caught my attention and delighted me. There is nothing like it on the market. This book is needed." .... Carol Roth, writer. "This gives the little people the confidence they need to buy stocks." .... Geoff Steele, government bean counter. "I made sure my children read chapter one." .... Nancy Bologna, sister of the author.

"All peanut butter and no fluff. The ideas here will stick with you for a long time." .... Phil Ludwig, CPA "An entertaining book with something useful for all readers, that is, common sense and down-to-earth advice." .... Dave Hutchison, geology professor. "I have experienced many of the pitfalls documented in these pages. A young person who follows the advice given here will be face to face with early retirement." .... Dale A. Schauer, self-taught investor. "The author occasionally lapses into redundancy. Not only that, he repeats himself. That is the only major flaw you'll find here. This book will not only help people make wise investments, but will teach them a common sense approach to life." .... Marcelle Martin, daughter of the author and editor of this book.

From the Inside Flap:

The author worked for many years as an operations analyst, a fancy title for those who figure out how something works and find ways to improve upon it. They used to call them efficiency experts. He applies that to the way people invest. It took twenty- four years to write this book, which is not surprising since he once took apart a car engine and didn't put it back together until nine years later. It started and ran even with one part left over. His research for this work included reading hundreds of books and thousands of articles, and for forty years he invested his family's modest savings using the methods recommended by experts. Most of what he now knows he learned the hard way.

The editor, Marcelle Martin, formerly taught English at West Chester University and Community College of Philadelphia. She is a member of the Newtown Square Friends Meeting and is called to Quaker ministry. She says, "The writing style used here reflects deliberate choices by the author, who ties an occasional tin can to the rules of grammar."
