Publisher's Summary

Now more than ever, investing your money can be a daunting task. Communications technology has advanced at a dizzying pace, and streams of data have swelled into torrents. How can investors isolate the essentials without being swamped by a glut of information?

Having successfully navigated the treacherous financial waters of investing for over 20 years, renowned financial expert John Mauldin knows the value of an experienced guide. In what is sure to become an immediate classic, his newest book is a priceless anthology of investment advice and nuggets of practical wisdom offered by a stellar assembly of market masters. And in a master stroke of his own, Mauldin has hit upon a perfect remedy for information overload, asking each contributor to share the single most useful insight gleaned from long years of experience: "just one thing".

In Just One Thing, you will not be overwhelmed by unwieldy formulas and tedious data. Mauldin's esteemed colleagues (with refreshing and liberating clarity) get right to the heart of the matter, offering time-tested trading methods that can be put to immediate and profitable use. Conversational rather than technical in tone, each contributor's personal principle for success is illustrated with entertaining and illuminating real-life stories. These are not mere theorists, but practitioners - professional investors who have enjoyed extraordinary success in the market and who can tell you what works, because it's worked for them.

In addition to John Mauldin's counsel, you'll hear advice solicited from investment gurus Rob Arnott, Bill Bonner, Ed Easterling, Mark Finn, Dennis Gartman, George Gilder, Andy Kessler, Michael Masterson, James Montier, Richard Russell and A. Gary Shilling.

A good read.

I've always like John Mauldin's point of view in his news letters. In this book, you get to hear some of the top minds in the industry talk about their ideas, real ideas that actually make sense. Many investment books out there are fill with nonsense get-rich-quick ideas, and this is not one of them. That alone is worth 4 stars.

Decent

Some of the essays were very good, and some were not good at all. I don't think this a must read by any stretch. But I don't regret buying it either.

NOPE

This book is a waste of money I would not buy it again if I did not have it. Too vaque and way too many stories of the people and their personal conversation... Waste of time and money
