What the experts are saying about INVESTMENT ILLUSIONS
One of the most entertaining, readable, and well-informed books on personal investing that I have seen. With erudition and wit, Fridson takes aim at the shibboleths, sacred cows, and snakeoil salesmen of the personal investing industry. Investment Illusions is a practical and engaging 'how-not-to' guide. --Stuart C. Gilson, Assistant Professor of Business Administration, Harvard University.
Investment Illusions presents much good financial advice and a great deal of financial history, especially recent financial history, in an easy-to-read style. I enjoyed it. --Harry M. Markowitz, Nobel Laureate in Economics, Marvin Speiser Professor of Finance and Economics, Baruch College.
Once in a while, you read a book which makes you think, 'I wish I'd read this book ten years ago.' Investment Illusions is such a book. I found it highly entertaining as well as instructive--the kind of book you pass on to a friend. --Richard Lehmann, President, Bond Investors Association.
Illusions can seem tangible and yet be fallacious. As usual, Marty Fridson uncovers minefields in some of the most important investment fundamentals in a clever and intuitive fashion. --Tony Kao, Director of Investment Research, General Motors Investment Management Corporation.
