Phil Town wasn't always a very wealthy man. In fact, he was living on $4000 a year when some well-timed advice launched him into an investing self-education that revealed what the true "rules" are and how to make them work in one's favor. Chief among them, of course, is: don't lose money. Other rules are: don't diversify; think like an owner, not an investor. Town also believes strongly in putting your faith in managers who've proven their financial mettle, and who really have faith in the businesses they're running. The most controversial of the book's assertions is that giant 401(k) type mutual funds will regress to the mean, and in the next twenty years, the mean could be very disappointing. Fortunately, Town's stockpicking techniques are meant to walk investing phobes through the do-it-yourself process, equipping them with the tools they need to make quantum leaps toward financial security.--From publisher description.

This man provides horrible financial advice. It's toxic for your financial independence. Instead, invest in low cost passively managed index funds with a tilt to value and growth according to your risk tolerance. Recall that 95% of the battle is your asset allocation.

Learn to emulate Warren Buffet's investing style - a value investor and essentially a contrarian style. No technical analysis or chart reading skills needed. Tells how to research businesses/stocks using free tools.

I wouldn't know where to start in the financial world without this book. Great book for a total novice in investing.
