Book Review: 'The Only Investment Guide You'll Ever Need'

Audacity sells. And in the book publishing industry, audacious titles sell much more than the same content under a different name would. (Case in point: "The 4-Hour Workweek," which was originally titled "Drug Dealing for Fun and Profit." Yeah.)

Anyhow, New York Times best-selling author Andrew Tobias not only bestowed on his 1978 personal finance classic the uber-audacious title "The Only Investment Guide You’ll Ever Need," but he’s also audaciously revised it eight times (by my count).

Even more extreme: Tobias acknowledges the out-there title at the very beginning of the book, then points out that the title is true not because his book is so great, but because most of its competition is so lame!

"The Only Investment Guide You’ll Ever Need" is a funny, smart guide to simplifying your finance and executing most or all of the common financial goals the average American holds in their thoughts, dreams and resolution lists. From saving more, to spending less, to investing more profitably, to retiring flush, the book offers Tobias’ entertaining and commonsense take on it all.
