Publisher's Summary

Say goodbye to expensive brokers! Forget gambling on their latest "hot stock," or their junk-bond or high-cost mutual funds recommendations. The results can be disastrous. Instead, veteran Wall Street Journal editor and CNBC commentator Douglas R. Sease shows you how to take back control of your money with a simple, safe, yet powerful investment program that can be tailored to meet your individual needs.

Writing with the solid backing of The Wall Street Journal, Sease reminds us that many financial services providers try to make investing appear mysterious and difficult in order to justify their fees.

You can use a combination of inexpensive, easy-to-produce investment vehicles - stock-index mutual funds and inflation-index Treasury bonds - to build a portfolio that will maximize your returns and minimize your risk. Combining a disciplined savings program with an equally disciplined investment program is a virtual guarantee of success. It puts more money into your investments instead of into Wall Street's pockets. Best of all, Sease shows you how to make the most of your money at different stages of your working life.

Good material...but boring

The passive investing message [index funds] is good...but the presentation is weak.
