Product description

From the Back Cover


With refreshing candor, straight talk, and good humor, the bestselling Winning the Loser's Game helps individual investors succeed with their investments and control their financial futures. Charles D. Ellis, dubbed “Wall Street's Wisest Man” by Money magazine, has been showing investors for three decades how stock markets really work and what individuals can and should do to be sure they are long-term winners.

In this fully revised and updated new edition, Ellis explains how you can be successful over the long run. Applying wisdom gained from half a century of working with the leading investment managers and securities firms around the world, he shows how you can easily avoid common traps and get on the right road to investment success.

Winning the Loser's Game leads you through the simple steps of setting realistic objectives, deciding on a sensible strategy, and, most importantly, sticking with it. You will learn how to:

  • Create an investment program based on the realities of markets
  • Use the "unfair" index fund to succeed, even in tumultuous markets
  • Institute an annual review process to steer your investments well into the future
  • Maximize investing success through five stages, from earning and saving through investing, estate planning, and givin

The need for a realistic, trustworthy investing guide has never been greater. Sixty million unprepared individuals--with 401(k) plans--are now responsible for making important investment decisions. They know they are not experts and don't know whom to trust.

Winning the Loser's Game explains why conventional investing has become a loser's game . . . and how each investor can easily make it a winner's game!
