About the Author:

Josť D. Roncal has authored numerous articles on business strategy, finance, accounting, capital markets and the global economy. He has more than 20 years of experience in international business and finance, the last 15 as a CFO focusing on global mergers and acquisitions, cross-border joint ventures, strategic alliances and spin offs. Mr. Roncal holds an MBA from Thunderbird University and a BA from Florida International University, and has attended senior executive programs at Oxford University.

Review:

"The first mistake people make when dealing with financial decisions is to confuse investment with speculation, and speculation with outright gambling. Read this book and you will understand what the terms really mean. A great read!"

-- Donald J. Trump
