In this timely and practical audiobook, this key idea is placed into the context of such issues as the aging crisis and the shift in global economic power to the emerging markets of China and India.

I believe individuals who are invested in equities will benefit from reading or listening to this work. This book includes useful information on investing strategies that one might want to consider. He also presents some interesting information that runs counter to common beliefs held buy many investors. For example, which would you have chosen in the early 1990's: To invest in China or in Brazil? Brazilian stocks did far better although the economy there grew very slowly during the study period. Stocks in China did not do so well despite a torrid economic growth rate. Jeremy Siegel has conducted extensive new research since his last book, "Stocks for the Long Run" (1994). As a result, he has changed some of his recommendations and strategies. My only negative comment is that he perhaps spends a bit too much time on some of the negative things that were said about him during the peak of the bubble. He questioned some of the ridiculous valuations of Internet stocks and received alot of hate mail as a result. Of course, history proved him right and I'm sure he enjoyed including his "I told you so" comments in the book.
Overall a worthwhile book. I recommend this, along with Peter Lynch's "One up on Wall Street".
This is an outstanding and thoroughly researched audiobook that provides a roadmap for making long term investment decisions and the rationale for why those decisions are best. Siegel clearly knows his stuff and has great credentials. This should be required listening for anyone managing money for the long haul.
The book itself is great. Extremely edifying. However, the audio format is not the best for a book that is full of statistics and charts. You might get more out of it from a hardcopy.
At the top
Every serious investor should have a copy of this book. Professor Siegel does an excellent job of explaining what to look for in stocks for achieving a superior peformance from your portfolio. Great book for beginning or advanced investors. A must have for your investing library.
Excellent book! Really gives you some things to think about and may even change the way you think of the economics of the future.
This was very educational. I found myself having to listen to several parts multiple times to fully grasp the concepts being discussed. I will probably listen to the entire book again in the near future.
This book helped me so much! Talks about value investing and why, where to invest, etc. Talks about the key things being reinvesting dividends, getting stocks at good prices (low PE, and PEG of less than .5), etc. Makes so much sense and is interesting! Combines Warren Buffet and Peter Lynch with his own research and findings! Loved it!
I'm a Registered Investment Advisor with 45+ years of Wall Street experience. I loved the book. Great for novices and for the experienced. Important information clearly explained. No, I'm NOT related to the author.
I haven't enjoyed a investing book like this since, Peter Lynch's, One up on Wall Street. Some interesting predictions (facts) about the future and what stocks you should invest in...dividend stocks with International exposure.
Insightful, understandable, clear
The examination about the past to draw some conclusions about the future and the writer's ability to explain things so clearly so that anyone can understand
