Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David | 1/13/2014

    " I follow this book's advice for determining my investment asset allocation. The book explains why asset allocation is important, and provides you with methods to determine which asset allocation may be best for you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark Kricheff | 1/8/2014

    " More intense dive into asset allocation with index funds as started in The Four Pillars of Investing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason | 11/19/2013

    " This book gives a rationale for why you should invest in index funds and why asset allocation is so important. It is mildly technical, but as long as you understand the concept of an average and standard deviation, the book is very readable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mikey | 10/17/2013

    " I would recommend this book to any whom is serious about starting an investment account. Well written and great information. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 3/19/2013

    " It was a well-written book with important principles for investing. As my first financial book, though, I have to admit that it took discipline to finish. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aaron | 1/11/2013

    " The Intelligent Asset Allocator is probably the single best non-technical book on investing. The author includes both a historical and a psychological perspective that is often missing in investing books. Probably his second most useful book (after The Four Pillars of Investing). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Nilson | 1/7/2013

    " Gives the basics of how to build a portfolio. It was interesting to learn that asset allocation is more important than picking individual stocks "

    " One of my top five investment books of all time. This is the first really excellent investment book I ever read. Since reading this book, Bernstein came out with an even better book for beginning investors and that is "Four Pillars of Investing." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott Bell | 5/7/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nick | 2/20/2011

    " Well, after reading this one, I didn't feel the need to read more than a few articles further before settling on my long-term investment strategy, so I guess that's a good measure of how it impressed me. Doesn't cover a ton of topics, but it covered the ones I was interested in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 12/7/2009

    " I read everything this guy writes. If you want to be independent and NOT rely on The Communist Party to support your life and retirement, then maybe you should read them to? "
