A psychological and financial perspective on investment strategy and the reality of market behavior. This groundbreaking book offers a unique perspective on the opportunities, dangers, and false representations facing the investor, by combining a view of both financial and psychological realities. It provides the essentials of investing and reveals ways to protect and increase hard-earned savings under one’s own direction, with neither the expensive drain nor possible unreliability or malfeasance of professional advisors. Sad tales of encounters with the markets are legion. Crashing financial losses, gradually depleted savings, growth forgone, fear, anger, depression, and suicide are needlessly commonplace. One may glimpse how to build one’s savings with ease and serenity, for it is not that difficult. - Xlibris Podcast Part 1: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/winning-investment-decisions-1 - Xlibris Podcast Part 2: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/winning-investment-decisions-2 - Xlibris Podcast Part 3: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/winning-investment-decisions-3 - Xlibris Podcast Part 5: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/winning-investment-decisions-5 -Xlibris Illustrated Podcast Part 1: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/winning-investment-decisions-video1 -Xlibris Illustrated Podcast Part 2: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/winning-investment-decisions-video2 -Xlibris Illustrated Podcast Part 4: http://www.xlibrispodcasts.com/winning-investment-decisions-video4
