I’m honored that my book was just listed as one of the best summer reads for advisers by Financial Planning. It’s on the list with some great books such as Michael Lewis’s The Undoing Project,” Daniel Kahneman’s “Thinking Fast and Slow,” and a book called “Great Expectations” by some British guy named Charles Dickens whose name rings a bell.
“There’s great stuff in here to share with clients, particularly when markets head south. Good behavior is handsomely rewarded for investors with long-term time horizons. I quote from it often.” – reviewer Stephanie Genkin.
This was a great one-year “bookiversary” gift. I’ll be speaking this fall at the FPA’s Financial Fitness Workshop in New York and at the annual meeting of the American Association of Individual Investors in Orlando for anyone who wants to see and hear me discuss the book’s lessons in person.
Can’t wait to read my brilliant explanations of why people are such lousy investors and how you can get better in Heads I Win, Tails I Win? A sneak preview is now online and in print days before the book is available in stores.
It’s an adaptation of a chapter titled “The Seven Habits of Highly Ineffective Investors” and is one of the parts of the book I had the most fun writing. It’s also the only chapter of my book, or for that matter any investing book, that recounts an episode of “Leave it to Beaver.”
There will be other excerpts available around publication time but this one is the longest and also appears in a publication that readers of my book should check out (they should subscribe to The Wall Street Journal too, of course!).
The AAII Journal accepts no advertising and is published by the American Association of Individual Investors. This group provides a lot of good investor education and also publishes an interesting survey of its members that I mention elsewhere in the book.
Stay tuned – release day is July 12th!
