Quotes & Awards

  • “An excellent guide.”


  • “Brennan treats his subject with great seriousness without taking himself too seriously…This lighthearted attitude is the spoonful of sugar that makes his investment education completely palatable…Straight Talk is just what the title suggests: a book filled with basic investment advice and solid strategies for creating a profitable portfolio. Brennan presents a reasonable approach that allows investors to filter out market distractions while investing.”

    Better Investing

  • Straight Talk on Investing could not have been titled more aptly. Its refreshing honesty and simplicity make this one of the most useful (and readable) personal investment books in years. In fact, Brennan has convinced us that successful investing can be easier than you think.”

    Barnes & Noble, editorial review

  • “[Brennan] offers readers a plain-speaking primer on how to build a sensible long-term investment portfolio…Filled with practical ‘do your homework’ and ‘trust diversification’ advice, this book is an easy-to-read first title on investing. For readers who closely follow Brennan’s common-sense instructions, a second investment book will probably be unnecessary.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Through the investment choices they make, individuals are responsible more than ever for their own financial security. Straight Talk lays out the core principles investors need to guide their investment decision making. The ideas are easily understood yet profound. This the kind of book one will want to read time and again.”

    Andre F. Perold, George Gund Professor of Finance and Banking, Harvard Business School
