From the Back Cover:

Praise for the Second Edition of Stop the Investing Rip-off: How to Avoid Being a Victim and Make More Money

"There are money morons everywhere! I'm sick of running into them at neighborhood gatherings and family holidays and business lunches and in every form of media, always making mistakes that make other guys millionaires. It makes me want to clap my hand over their flapping lips and jam a copy of David's book into their paws. It's a sucker-bait neutralizer—and, boy, do we need fewer suckers." —Jason Kelly, author of The Neatest Little Guide to Stock Market Investing

Investment firms lie. Many are packed with charlatans and smooth-talking salespeople using insidious advertising and marketing techniques designed to prey on your emotional desires against your better financial judgment.
