Publisher's Summary

In this essential handbook - a blend of Rich Dad, Poor Dad and The Happiness Project - the cohost of the wildly popular InvestED podcast shares her yearlong journey learning to invest, as taught to her by her father, investor and best-selling author Phil Town. 

Growing up, the words finance, savings, and portfolio made Danielle Town's eyes glaze over, and the thought of stocks and financial statements shut down her brain. The daughter of a successful investor and best-selling financial author of Rule #1, Phil Town, she spent most of her adult life avoiding investing - until she realized that her time-consuming career as a lawyer was making her feel anything but in control of her life or her money. Determined to regain her freedom, vote for her values with her money, and deal with her fear of the unpredictable stock market, she turned to her father, Phil, to help her take charge of her life and her future through Warren Buffett-style value investing. Over the course of a year, Danielle went from avoiding everything to do with the financial industrial complex to knowing exactly how and when to invest in wonderful companies. 

In Invested, Danielle shows you how to do the same: how to take command of your own life and finances by choosing companies with missions that match your values, using the same gold-standard strategies that have catapulted Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger to the top of the Forbes 400. Avoiding complex math and obsolete financial models, she turns her father's investing knowledge into 12 easy-to-understand lessons. 

In each chapter Danielle examines the investment strategies she mastered as her increasing know-how deepened the trust between her and her father. Throughout, she streamlines the process of making wise financial decisions and shows you just how easy - and profitable - investing can be. 

Capturing a warm, charming, and down-to-earth give and take between a headstrong daughter and her mostly patient dad, Invested makes the complex world of investing simple, straightforward, and approachable and will help you formulate your own investment plan - and foster the confidence to put it into action. Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Easily my fav of 2018

As an aspiring investor this book provides a great anchor where it’s not a super long how-to. I relate a lot to Danielle’s current market aptitude, and even though Math likes me, the story in this book made full use of my emotions. From feeling inspired at the end, to laughing uncontrollably during Danielle’s first practice shares experience. I loved this book and the Top 15 investor books on Phil’s website are part of my 2019 goals. I’ll be adding this book to my yearly re-reads.

Sooooo slow and unnecessarily drawn out 😩

Get to the point. 20 mins worth of information buried under boring, silver spoons life 101.

Not what I was expecting

I’m not sure what I was expecting from this book, maybe something new about investing? I kept wanting to like the book but it was 90% her life story and 10% about actually important information for a beginner like myself. I felt like a fish on a hook trying to keep biting the good info but instead just heard her story about her grandma, childhood and all the details that I really had no interest in.

Benjamin Graham for Millenials

Danielle does a great job of breaking down value investing philosophies from the likes of Graham, Buffet, amd Munger in a modern, easy to read format. Great read!

As the first investment book, ok

Basic concepts, nice personal story. Hear it if you are new to investing.
If you expect deep calculations etc, don’t read.
Nice resources at the end.

Clarity is lost in audio.

She has a good story line, but hard to impossible to follow methods from an audio book. It would be much better as a physical book.

Great book to start learning value investing

This is a book for someone who wants to start value investing but does not know where to begin. I recommend this book to the young generation who wants to achieve financial freedom in the future years.

I love this book

They say a successful person can read as much as 50 books a year. Well, I spend 5 hours a day in traffic and working toward financial freedom... duh, that’s why I got the book.

And I can tell you this, I have listened to over 50 books in the last 9 months, I don’t review them all, but in this case I did. Because, it awesome.

Told with a story, Danielle’s delivery of the book is fantastic.
The content is easy to understand (mostly)
And it comes with PDF’s to study and bolster your learning (when your home and not in traffic..)

So, according to audible, I am a master listener. Of the hundreds of hours spent hearing different voiceovers, delivery’s and content, this one makes it in to the top 5 most prized pieces of audio content to date.

That said, content can be king, and this book doesn’t disappoint. It is full of information I haven’t really found elsewhere and Danielle walks you through it all making excellent reference to additional material and other works to check out.

Lastly, example: rich dad poor dad is cool, but I find it a typical ‘do this, do that’ without actual instruction (missing the HOW). Invested has instruction, GOOD instruction, and specialises in one thing instead of skimming the surface of 10 other rabbit holes

I’m rereading this by the way.

Brilliant for Newbie and Young Investors

I've been following Phil Town for a year now and my financial awareness has certainly increased, but Danielle captures the seesaw of emotions, concerns and fears that go through my mind and body when thinking about investing.

I so resonate with 'I don't do numbers' and therefore it was great to hear how Danielle worked through this roadblock belief herself.

I think all young people should have access to this book in school and college and it should be part of the maths and business curriculums, to help raise awareness of how to make money work for you and to help people get over the fear of buying shares on your own.

Excellent listening/read and I liked hearing the author speak it as it conveyed her authenticity.

Thank you Danielle and Phil for sharing.

A simply superb book.

This is the first book I've written a review about having listened to nearly 30 since signing up to audible. Being a complete investing novice, I have listened to several books about the subject and this is, without hyperbole, the best I've listened to. It is packed full of wonderful insights of the world of value investing but, most importantly, the authors candid prose speaks directly to the emotions and feelings that those starting out in investing cannot avoid. It is a funny and heartfelt book that brings to life the theory in a way that is incredibly compelling. It has definitely inspired me to emulate the authors journey and discover what it is to be a value investor. I highly recommend this book, especially to anyone who feels they do not understand the stock market and are nervous about investing their money. You'd be hard pushed to find a book that is both as informative and inspiring.

relieves the nervousness around investing

Great book, I now feel I have the tools to begin investing which has always filled me with trepidation. I like the author also have a family member who talks about investing all the time but the way she's broken it down in the book makes me excited to try this investment style. Yay! to adulting finally

A good listen but won't appeal to everyone

This combines lessons on investing with a personal story of Danielle's journey into investing, a deeper relationship with her father and her personal life.

I found the story a bit contrived to start with but enjoyed the book more than I thought I would.

It was a fairly easy listen until it got into the analysis of company returns and calculating formula - not too difficult but you need to read the PDF and not just rely on the audio.

Great resource for beginners to get started.

Easy to read. There is a couple of numbers heavy chapters I'll need to review again and would be great to have a bit more in the pdf on those chapters to refer to.

Very impressed overall. I think you have everything you need to get started here.

Amazing for a beginner like me

in short: it answered all my questions, gave me a road map and took me from having very little understanding about shares to now having confidence in the process of investing. I now also have the framework of how to evaluate a company (even though I'll need to keep practicing this).

I loved it and got so much out of it. I am a total beginner but within the week it took me through understanding exactly what I need to do and what to look for in investing in shares. I will definitely be listening to this a second time.
