<b>#1 <i>New York Times </i>Bestseller</b><br /> <br /><b>鈥淪ignificant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.鈥?鈥?lt;i>The New York Times</i></b><br /> <br /> <b>Ray Dalio, one of the world鈥檚 most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he鈥檚 developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business鈥攁nd which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals.</b><br /><br />In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to <i>Fortune</i> magazine. Dalio himself has been named to <i>Time </i>magazine鈥檚 list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater鈥檚 exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as 鈥渁n idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.鈥?It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio鈥攚ho grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood鈥攖hat he believes are the reason behind his success.<br /> <br /> In <i>Principles, </i>Dalio shares what he鈥檚 learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book鈥檚 hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of 鈥渞adical truth鈥?and 鈥渞adical transparency,鈥?include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating 鈥渂aseball cards鈥?for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses, and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, <i>Principles</i> also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they鈥檙e seeking to achieve.<br /> <br />Here, from a man who has been called both 鈥渢he Steve Jobs of investing鈥?and 鈥渢he philosopher king of the financial universe鈥?(<i>CIO </i>magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you鈥檒l find in the conventional business press.

鈥淚n the dark, bewildering, trap-infested jungle of misinformation and opaque riddles that is the world of investment, JL Collins is the fatherly wizard on the side of the path, offering a simple map, warm words of encouragement and the tools to forge your way through with confidence. You'll never find a wiser advisor with a bigger heart.鈥?-- Malachi Rempen: Filmmaker, cartoonist, author and self-described ruffian<br /><br />This book grew out of a series of letters to my daughter concerning various things鈥攎ostly about money and investing鈥攕he was not yet quite ready to hear.<br /><br />Since money is the single most powerful tool we have for navigating this complex world we鈥檝e created, understanding it is critical.<br /><br />鈥淏ut Dad,鈥?she once said, 鈥淚 know money is important.

Bridges to build, diseases to cure, treaties to negotiate, mountains to climb, technologies to create, children to teach, businesses to run.<br /><br />Unfortunately, benign neglect of things financial leaves you open to the charlatans of the financial world. The people who make investing endlessly complex, because if it can be made complex it becomes more profitable for them, more expensive for us, and we are forced into their waiting arms.<br /><br />Here鈥檚 an important truth: Complex investments exist only to profit those who create and sell them.

<p><b>The best-selling investing "bible" offers new information, new insights, and new perspectives </b></p> <p><i>The Little Book of Common Sense Investing</i>聽is the classic guide to getting smart about the market. Legendary mutual fund 聽pioneer John C. Bogle reveals his key to getting more out of investing: low-cost index funds. Bogle describes the simplest and most effective investment strategy for building wealth over the long term: buy and hold, at very low cost, a mutual fund that tracks a broad stock market Index such as the S&P 500.</p> <p>While the stock market has tumbled and then soared since the first edition of <i>Little Book of Common Sense</i> was published in April 2007, Bogle鈥檚 investment principles have endured and served investors well.聽 This tenth anniversary edition includes updated data and new information but maintains the same long-term perspective as in its predecessor.聽</p> <p>Bogle has also added two new chapters designed to provide further guidance to investors:聽 one on asset allocation, the other on retirement investing.</p> <p>A portfolio focused on index funds is the only investment that effectively guarantees聽your fair share of stock market returns. This strategy is favored by Warren Buffett, who said this about Bogle: 鈥淚f a statue is ever erected to honor the person who has done the most for American investors, the hands-down choice should be Jack Bogle. For decades, Jack has urged investors to invest in ultra-low-cost index funds. . . . Today, however, he has the satisfaction of knowing that he helped millions of investors realize far better returns on their savings than they otherwise would have earned. He is a hero to them and to me.鈥?lt;/p> <p>Bogle shows you how to make index investing work for you and help you achieve your financial goals, and finds support from some of the world's best financial minds: not only Warren Buffett, but Benjamin Graham, Paul Samuelson, Burton Malkiel, Yale鈥檚 David Swensen, Cliff Asness of AQR, and many others.</p> <p>This new edition of聽<i>The</i> <i>Little Book of Common Sense Investing</i>聽offers you the same solid strategy as its predecessor for building your financial future.</p> <ul> <li>Build a broadly diversified, low-cost portfolio without the risks of individual stocks, manager selection, or sector rotation.</li> <li>Forget the fads and marketing hype, and focus on what works in the real world.</li> <li>Understand that stock returns are generated by three sources (dividend yield, earnings growth, and change in market valuation) in order to establish rational expectations for stock returns over the coming decade.</li> <li>Recognize that in the long run, business reality 聽trumps market expectations.</li> <li>Learn how to harness the magic of compounding returns while avoiding the tyranny of compounding costs.</li> </ul> <p>While index investing allows you to sit back and let the market do the work for you, too many investors trade frantically, turning a winner鈥檚 game into a loser鈥檚 game. <i>The Little Book of Common Sense Investing</i>聽is a solid guidebook to your financial future.</p>

<b>The irreverent guide to investing, Boglehead style</b> <p><i>The Boglehead's Guide to Investing</i> is a DIY handbook that espouses the sage investment wisdom of John C. Bogle. This witty and wonderful book offers contrarian advice that provides the first step on the road to investment success, illustrating how relying on typical "common sense" promoted by Wall Street is destined to leave you poorer.

With warnings and principles both precisely accurate and grandly counterintuitive, the Boglehead authors show how beating the market is a zero-sum game.</p> <p>Investing can be simple, but it's certainly not simplistic. Over the course of twenty years, the followers of John C. Bogle have evolved from a loose association of investors to a major force with the largest and most active non-commercial financial forum on the Internet. <i>The Boglehead's Guide to Investing</i> brings that communication to you with comprehensive guidance to the investment prowess on display at Bogleheads.org. You'll learn how to craft your own investment strategy using the Bogle-proven methods that have worked for thousands of investors, and how to:</p> <ul> <li>Choose a sound financial lifestyle and diversify your portfolio</li> <li>Start early, invest regularly, and know what you're buying</li> <li>Preserve your buying power, keeping costs and taxes low</li> <li>Throw out the "good" advice promoted by Wall Street that leads to investment failure</li> </ul> <p>Financial markets are essentially closed systems in which one's gain garners another's loss.

<b><i>Antifragile聽</i>is a standalone book in Nassim Nicholas Taleb鈥檚 landmark Incerto series, an investigation of opacity, luck, uncertainty, probability, human error, risk, and decision-making in a world we don鈥檛 understand. The other books in the series are聽<i>Fooled by Randomness,聽The Black Swan, Skin in the Game,聽</i>and聽<i>The Bed of Procrustes</i>.</b><br /><br />Nassim Nicholas Taleb, the bestselling author of <i>The Black Swan</i> and one of the foremost thinkers of our time, reveals how to thrive in an uncertain world.<br /><br /> Just as human bones get stronger when subjected to stress and tension, and rumors or riots intensify when someone tries to repress them, many things in life benefit from stress, disorder, volatility, and turmoil. What Taleb has identified and calls 鈥渁ntifragile鈥?is that category of things that not only gain from chaos but need it in order to survive and flourish.聽 <br /><br /> In <i>The Black Swan, </i>Taleb showed us that highly improbable and unpredictable events underlie almost everything about our world. In <i>Antifragile,</i> Taleb stands uncertainty on its head, making it desirable, even necessary, and proposes that things be built in an antifragile manner. The antifragile is beyond the resilient or robust. The resilient resists shocks and stays the same; the antifragile gets better and better. <br /><br /> Furthermore, the antifragile is immune to prediction errors and protected from adverse events. Why is the city-state better than the nation-state, why is debt bad for you, and why is what we call 鈥渆fficient鈥?not efficient at all? Why do government responses and social policies protect the strong and hurt the weak? Why should you write your resignation letter before even starting on the job? How did the sinking of the <i>Titanic</i> save lives? The book spans innovation by trial and error, life decisions, politics, urban planning, war, personal finance, economic systems, and medicine. And throughout, in addition to the street wisdom of Fat Tony of Brooklyn, the voices and recipes of ancient wisdom, from Roman, Greek, Semitic, and medieval sources, are loud and clear.<br /><br /> <i>Antifragile</i> is a blueprint for living in a Black Swan world.<br /><br /> Erudite, witty, and iconoclastic, Taleb鈥檚 message is revolutionary: The antifragile, and only the antifragile, will make it.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Antifragile</i></b><br /><br />鈥淎mbitious and thought-provoking . . . highly entertaining.鈥?lt;b>鈥?lt;i>The Economist</i></b><br /><br /> 鈥淎 bold book explaining how and why we should embrace uncertainty, randomness, and error . . . It may just change our lives.鈥?lt;b>鈥?lt;i>Newsweek</i></b>
