The Little Book of Safe Money acts as a guide for those trying to make their way through a down market. The topics covered include everything from investing behavior (why our minds come with their own set of biases that often prove harmful) to the use of financial advisors (the good, the bad and the ugly). But the audiobook goes one step further in questioning an investor's true appetite for risk; according to Zweig, our appetites change according to the circumstance and we must recognize this in order to map out a long-term financial plan.

The Little Book of Safe Money also contradicts a lot of the myths that whirl around Wall Street with chapter heads like, "Stocks for the Wrong Run," "The Small-Cap Hoax," and "Hedge-Fund Hooey." Written in our now classic Little Book style, Zweig peels away layer after layer of buzz words, emotion and myths to reveal what is really going on in our economy and the financial markets today and offers the necessary tools on how not only to survive but prosper.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Jason Zweig knows your financial demons, where they live, why they’re making you poor, and how you can beat them.”

    William J. Bernstein, financial theorist

  • “A little book with big advice. Jason Zweig…doesn’t promise investors the moon, but in language that everyone can understand, he offers solid, commonsense steps to protect and improve their portfolios…Such advice is consistent with the big idea of Zweig’s book: If an investment looks too good to be true, it probably is. And he offers a useful process to help readers remember it.”


  • “There are very few in the financial media whose material I would consider recommended reading. Wall Street Journal columnist Jason Zweig is one of them, and his new book is one you should consider. His latest work adds to his reputation for books that not only provide important insights into the winning investment strategy, but are also good reads. This little book is filled with sage counsel from which even sophisticated investors can benefit…His book also provides advice on how to avoid many of the behavioral mistakes investors keep repeating.”

    Larry Swedroe, CBS MoneyWatch

  • “This book is a well-written, fascinating page-turner that I read in one sitting with a big bag of microwave popcorn. Yet, I don’t just recommend a book because it was thoroughly enjoyable. The main reason to read this book is that it can put you on the path toward reaching financial freedom. But it’s up to you and whether you’d rather spend your retirement years pursuing your interests, or spend them asking strangers if they’d like their value meal supersized.”

    Allan Roth, founder of Wealth Logic, and author of How a Second Grader Beats Wall Street

  • “There are two parts to investing. One part seeks gains. The other part—too often overlooked—protects your standard of living when markets go bad. Jason Zweig brilliantly focuses on ‘protection,’ not only in bond investing but in stocks, as well. He names, and knocks, the products designed to part you from your money, while steering you toward the kinds of low-cost, low-risk investments that, historically, have come out ahead.”

    Jane Bryant Quinn, financial columnist and author of Smart and Simple Financial Strategies for Busy People

  • “I’ve been a financial planner for over thirty years and there is not one client I’ve worked with who would not profit from reading and heeding the advice in The Little Book of Safe Money.”

    Harold Evensky, president, Evensky & Katz
