Praise for Sheldon Jacobs

"Sheldon Jacobs is a level-headed gentleman who is a cross between Albert Einstein, the Dalai Lama, and Vanguard founder Jack Bogle and who had a solid record editing and publishing The No-Load Fund Investor financial newsletter for over a quarter-century."
MarketWatch

"King of no-loads."
Investor's Business Daily

"Dean of the no-load fund watchers."
USA Today

"Among financial experts who are able to think with a small investor's perspective, no one is more level-headed than Sheldon Jacobs."
Bottom Line/Personal

In July of 1993, Sheldon Jacobs was one of five nationally recognized mutual fund advisors chosen by The New York Times for a mutual fund portfolio competition. The portfolio that he selected produced the highest return of all contestants for almost seven years, and the Times quarterly publication of this contest helped him become one of the best-known mutual fund advisorsin America.

Investing without Wall Street shows investors how to achieve the greatest wealth with the least effort. It details the five essentials that even a kid could master and shows that they are all you need to be a successful investor. With this knowledge, the average investor can invest on his or her own and make $252,000 more than a person investing the same way who shares his or her profits with professionals. This book will teach you how.

From the Inside Flap:

The secrets to growing your wealth lie far beyond just investing strategies and financial products. The options for investing are endless, and their sheer number can be overwhelming, but in Investing without Wall Street: The Five Essentials of Financial Freedom, Sheldon Jacobs, founding editor and publisher of The No-Load Fund Investor, shows how to achieve the greatest wealth with the least effort. The book focuses on what investors actually do with their investments, rather than teaching strategies that read well, but are nonetheless unessential.

Presenting clear, practical advice on market timing, vanity investments, recent advances in index fund investing, bear market strategies, growing one's income, and much more, this book is designed to help you maximize your wealth. Filled with timeless wisdom and personal anecdotes that will inform and illuminate your investment decisions for years to come, Investing without Wall Street includes:

  • Five essentials that investors need to concentrate on, and what they can safely ignore

  • How to use the media to get the best investment advice and recommendations

  • The case for using a market timer

  • Why specific security recommendations don't make the five essentials

  • How to achieve complete portfolio diversification with only two funds

Indispensable reading for anyone looking to make more money, from new investors just starting out to seasoned pros returning to the market after the recent downturn, this lively and accessible book includes in-depth coverage of almost twenty subjects that are rarely, if ever, found in other investing guides. Investors will learn how to use the financial advice found in the media, survive bear markets, and build a mutual fund portfolio that will pay dividends for life. The definitive guide to individual investing, Investing without Wall Street stresses the importance of taking a skeptical, clearheaded approach to investment opportunities, and teaches you exactly how to develop and implement successful money strategies.
