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.

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.

WORTHY!!!

This book is absolutely worthy of a wicked review!!! As someone who has listened to over 4000 hours of academic audiobooks, Danielle is not only a captivating author, she is a captivating narrator too!! Her real life style pulls you in, making you believe that's she's truly been in your position, asking the, seemingly stupid questions that you'd be afraid to ask for fear of looking and sounding, well, stupid. She is you... Looking for a worthy teacher to teach you something scary, Investing. You asked and the Universe has provided! I walk away with this knowledge, feeling more confident, secure and Trust for the Source and knowledge given. Thank you Universe for consistently providing 🙏 And thank you Danielle and Phil for stepping up and sharing!!!

Fingernails on chalkboard

The woman who is narrating sounds like a high school girl. It’s so bad I that I can’t even stand to listen to the advice and I can’t delete it!

I hope everyone reads this book

Think how much better the world would be if everyone invested their time, attention and money in companies and causes they really believed in.

Great book to teach the power of compound interest

This is a great book for people that do not understand the importance of saving and investing early and regularly. I encouraged both of my young adult children to read this book. Danielle Town outlines the process of stock market investing she learned from her father, each step is reviewed thoroughly to provide the reader with knowledge and skill to make wise investments. Although achieving the high rate of returns this book touts may not be as simple and clean cut as the book leads you to believe, it makes a powerful case for making smart investments and sticking with them for the long haul.

Great content minus the love story

If looking for more of a technical analysis, this isn't the book. But if you're struggling with finding a place to start or feel overwhelmed by everything, this is a great and extremely relatable story about investment, and life, as a practice.

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.

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 great book for beginner investors.

I love values based investing as a concept. something I attached to 10 years ago but was only able to articulate now because of this book.
