With the value of the dollar sinking, bond yields drying up, giant investment banks collapsing, and stock markets crumbling, how can you ensure that your money will stay safe? By becoming better acquainted with the markets, the “professionals” who populate the field of finance, and most importantly, yourself. While this may sound like simple advice, author Jason Zweig—the investing and personal finance columnist for the Wall Street Journal—knows how difficult this endeavor can be. But as a trusted voice in the financial community, he has helped thousands of investors achieve this goal, and now, with The Little Book of Safe Money, he wants to help you do the same. This is the perfect guide for those trying to make their way through today’s tough markets. He covers everything from investing behavior and why our minds come with their own set of biases that often prove harmful to the use of financial advisors, and goes one step further than the rest by questioning an investor’s true appetite for risk. Zweig also debunks many of the myths that whirl around Wall Street with chapters like “Hedge-Fund Hooey.” This timely audio book: • Outlines strategies for satisfying our ever-changing investment appetites while focusing on a long-term financial plan • Discusses both the external and internal forces that can hurt our investment performance—and how you can better deal with them • Offers practical guidance, tools, and tips for surviving and thriving in a down market • And much more In a straightforward and accessible style, Zweig peels away layer after layer of buzz words, emotion, and myths to reveal what’s really going on in today’s financial markets and how you can thrive under even the most adverse conditions. If you’re serious about succeeding in today’s turbulent markets, then The Little Book of Safe Money is what you should be listening to. Download and start listening now!


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
