A Wealth of Common Sense

A Wealth of Common Sense is an investment book about simplicity. Investors can get all bogged down in the complexity of various investments, but much more important is getting the major decisions right by keeping them simple.

It's hard to argue with anything in the book. But it is also pretty basic. It seems to be aimed at the novice investor, so I ended up skimming a lot of it, as I could tell what the author was going to say and why.

It's also not a book aimed at stock pickers, but rather those who recognize they don't have the emotional wherewithal to buy low and sell high.

If you're an investing beginner, A Wealth of Common Sense is as good a place as any to get started.
