SYNOPSIS : Investing is a game. We play with real money. The game is run by people who don't care about you. They want your money. And they know people will invest stupidly if they get enough chances. You need to Think for Yourself. You can win this game, but only if you make good decisions. This is not the same advice you read everywhere else. This is for when you figure out all that commonly accepted BS doesn't work as promised. You don't really think Wall Street has changed, do you? It's your money. You don't have to do what everyone else does. Why not step away from the herd and Think For Yourself? When you're done reading this book, you will be a better investor. We give you the ability to choose your own investments and safely maximize your returns. You can make money for yourself instead of letting everyone else profit from your efforts. Going along with the herd is stupid most of the time, and especially in the world of investing. Why not step away? You are the best source for your answers. No one cares about your money more than you. Question; Do you know your risk free rate of return? Do you use it in your investment decisions? Most people are just shoveling money into things like a 401K because someone told them to do it. Don't be one of them. Use critical thinking and allocate your money to do what is best for you. Note: This book assumes you've read our companion book Don't be Stupid about Money. Understanding money from our point of view helps you make smarter investments. "Street Smart" beats theory every time. We make investing easy. There is no reason for it to be difficult. And there's no reason for you to be another victim of the herd mentality. Why not spend a couple of hours with us and make better decisions forever? You already know that's a good investment. Read now and be wealthier for the rest of your life. HGJ

Pinpoint your biggest money blind spots and take control of your finances with these tools from CBS News business analyst and host of the nationally syndicated radio show Jill on Money, Jill Schlesinger. Do you have a "friend" who is super smart, has a great career, holds a graduate degree, has even saved a chunk of money for retirement, but who keeps making the same dumb mistakes when it comes to money? Is this "friend" you? After decades working as a Wall Street trader, investment advisor, and money expert for CBS, Jill Schlesinger reveals thirteen costly mistakes you're probably making right now with your money, without even knowing it. Drawing on heartfelt personal stories (yes, money experts screw up, too), Schlesinger argues that it's not lack of smarts that causes even the brightest, most accomplished people among us to behave like financial dumb-asses, but simple emotional blind spots. By breaking bad habits and following her practical and accessible rules for managing your finances, you can save tens, even hundreds of thousands of dollars, not to mention countless sleepless nights. The Dumb Things Smart People Do with Their Money tells you what you really need to hear about investing, retirement, college financing, insurance, real estate, and more. It might be the smartest investment you make all year.

SYNOPSIS : Would you like to make better decisions? We're overloaded with information today, and we're overloaded with entertaining distractions. Most of it is free and in real time too. We can follow events as they unfold, whether the latest political outrage or celebrity getting out of bed this morning. It's an all-you-can-eat buffet. But the overload makes it easy to become passive and lazy thinkers. It's mind-numbing. We simply consume. And everyone just moves along like a grazing herd, not thinking much about who's leading or where it's going. That may be OK for entertainment, but wouldn't it be better to make the important decisions for yourself? Step away from the herd and Think for Yourself. Critical thinking is a powerful weapon in a stupid world. You are your own best source for important answers. Critical thinking makes your life better whether you're watching pet videos or discussing Proust. "In all countries fools outnumber the rest." Better to be one of the smart ones. Spend a couple of hours with us and make better decisions forever. HGJ

SYNOPSIS : I met Bob Doroghazi when he dropped the first draft of his manuscript of The Physician’s Guide to Investing: A Practical Approach to Building Wealth at my office. I will have to admit I was a bit skeptical: a physician writing a book on investments? During that first meeting with Bob, it became evident that he had been a successful physician and a successful investor, so I agreed to take a look at the book. I was in for a pleasant surprise. Bob’s manuscript was easy to read and had specific advice useful to physicians, interspersed with lots of practical tidbits for any investor. Having written three college-level finance and investment texts, I was excited to be in on a project aimed at offering practical investment advice to a more general, yet specialized, audience. I had high expectations for the book and am pleased to say that I believe Bob has delivered a book that every physician interested in building wealth and protecting assets should read. Bob is a straight shooter; he tells it like he sees it in his book. Some doctors might be indignant on reading his statements, such as β€œPhysicians sometimes have no idea of their limitations. This type of arrogance and ego can result in investing disaster.” However, if you do have these limitations (and most professionals, even college professors, do), then reading Bob’s book will help you recognize situations in which they can lead to poor investment decisions.
