    Great introductory book for index fund investing, asset allocation, and the importance of ignoring the market “chatter” that constantly tempts the investor to “do something” (even if that “something” is more likely to hurt than help). At about 100 pages, the entire book can easily be read in one sitting, and provides a great introduction to the topic.

    Perhaps the most helpful message of the book is that simple investing is easy and generally beats complex investing. More activity does not necessarily lead to better investing results, and laziness (aka patience) generally outperforms efforts to produce higher returns.

    By presenting this discussion in a clear, straightforward and easily-understood manner, “Investing Made Simple” lives up to its title. Easy to read, easy to understand, easy to implement – and with a good set of references for further ready, this book is a great launching point for someone interested in investing for themselves and with their own interests first and foremost. Thanks Mike!

    If you are new to investing and want a short introduction this is an excellent book for you. It defines the basics concepts: stocks, bonds, mutual funds, index funds, IRAs, 401Ks, and asset allocation. It gives you solid strategies that are proven to work in the long run: avoiding taxes and fees, buying diverse investments, using an asset allocation plan, and annual rebalancing. Finally, the book warns you against common pitfalls that are hazardous to your wealth: Chasing hot funds, selling at a market low, and buying at market peaks.

    This is a good overview of the widely agreed upon principles of investing. At the end, he lists 20-25 books and blogs as “Helpful Resources”. I would describe this book as a short summary of the common points on investing between all those other resources.

    This book is great for its intended audience (beginning investors). If you already know the benefits of index funds and a good asset allocation, you probably won’t get much out of it though.
