The Book

Need new weapons in your investment battle plan? Well, stop looking to professional investment people for advice, says Bill Feingold, a former Goldman Sachs convertible bond trader. Instead, in his witty and accessible The Undoing of Cowardice, he shows you how so-called professionals have ruined the market and why you should depend on your own common sense to secure your financial future. Feingold explains stocks, bonds and options in layman’s terms. Most importantly, he gives you the tools and processes you need to get you comfortable thinking for yourself, rather than having an investment specialist do it for you. Filled with tips, tricks and Feingold’s online investing columns, this is a terrific handbook for anyone already in the market or thinking about it.
