Since Larry Swedroe's first Wise Investing book was published in 2007, investors have watched the world change dramatically. The 2008 financial crisis introduced investors to a mess of questionable investment products and dishonest financial institutions. Thanks to Wall Street and the financial media, investing appears neither simple nor easy. Fortunately, the Wise Investing Made Simple series focuses on simplifying prudent investing concepts. It's a lifeline in a chaotic sea of noise and confusion. The first book in this series entertained and educated investors by teaching them about the markets through storytelling. This second book furthers this aim by delving deeper into important investing principles without sacrificing simplicity, tackling issues such as retirement planning, long-term investing, and owning property. New and experienced investors alike will benefit from the wisdom and sense of calm that Larry Swedroe shares in these pages.

About the Author:

Larry Swedroe is a principal in the firm Buckingham Asset Management. He graduated from New York University with an MBA in finance, and is the author of The Only Guide to a Winning Investment Strategy You'll Ever Need, What Wall Street Doesn't Want You to Know, and four other books.

Review:

"I am an endowed professor of investments at Baylor University. I am well paid, widely quoted and considered an expert in investments. Yet, I do not own a single individual security. Instead, I invest in a globally diversified portfolio of low-cost index funds and ETFs--the same strategy advocated in this book. Why? Based on decades of my research and that of others, in my opinion it is the best way to manage money. Like many finance professors, I heed the advice advocated in this book and I encourage you to do the same." --Dr. William Reichenstein, CFA, Pat and Thomas R. Powers Chair in Investment Management, Department of Finance, Insurance & Real Estate, Hankamer School of Business, Baylor University

"Wise" is exactly the word I would use to describe this book. Larry's insights on investing has little in common with the self-interested advice of Wall Street or the popular financial press. Instead, it's culled from the best, most rigorous research on what really works. The amazing thing you will learn is that wise--and successful--investing really is simple. And the evidence for it, which Larry illustrates in pleasing, true-to-life narrative style, is irrefutable. --Eric Schurenberg, Editor in Chief, CBS MoneyWatch.com and BNET.com

"Larry Swedroe has provided simple yet compelling and timeless investment lessons told through a set of charming stories. Learning the morals from these stories can make all of us better investors." --Burton G. Malkiel, author of A Random Walk Down Wall Street

"Larry Swedroe is a story teller, and all his tales are a masterful mix of practical advice and profound insight. Each has the power to make you wealthier and happier, not least because Swedroe knows the difference." --Gary Belsky, co-author, Why Smart People Make Big Money Mistakes And How To Correct Them: Lessons From The Life-Changing Science of Behavioral Economics

The world of investing is too often guided by myths of conventional wisdom, such as market timing is a profitable strategy. Swedroe, in his unique style, first debunks these myths using stories and analogies that present the correct logic in familiar and understandable ways. Next, Swedroe presents the research-based evidence that should guide investment decisions in these various scenarios. This process makes investing simple, but not too simple, and Swedroe makes the approach all the more entertaining, but still correctly so. --John A. Haslem is mutual funds research Professor Emeritus of Finance at the University of Maryland, and editor of Mutual Funds: Portfolio Structures, Analysis, Management, and Stewardship (Wiley, 2010).
