9780470473238: The Little Book of Main Street Money: 21 Simple Truths that Help Real People Make Real Money

"A gem from one of the most brilliant minds in personal finance."
Ben Stein, author, actor, TV personality, and New York Times columnist

"Investing, as it is said, is simple but it is not easy. Jonathan Clements's fine new Little Book underscores the priceless (and price-less) value of simplicity. And his sage advice on living the good life and on spending well and saving wisely will surely make it, if not easy, at least easier for us to achieve financial peace of mind."
John C. Bogle, founder of Vanguard and author of Enough

"Nobody, and I mean nobody, can make the world of investing as easy to understand as Jonathan Clements can. In this wonderful book, he teaches Main Street how to beat Wall Street at its own game-and how to have fun along the way. This book does not stop at merely making you richer and smarter; it will even help you lead a better life."
Jason Zweig, author of Your Money and Your Brain and editor of Benjamin Graham's The Intelligent Investor

"Jonathan Clements is one of our wisest and finest writers in the field of personal finance. This Little Book contains gems of wisdom not only about investing, but also about living a full and satisfying life."
Burton G. Malkiel, author of A Random Walk Down Wall Street

"Easy to read, easy to understan-and easy to put to work-this Little Book is a winner. I'm getting copies for our children-and their children, too."
Charles D. Ellis, author of Winning the Loser's Game

Review:

Street Smart Tips for Main Street
Content from author Jonathan Clements

1. Don’t pay an insurance company to shoulder risks you can afford to shoulder yourself.

2. To make it easier to amass enough for retirement, aim to start saving no later than age 30

3. Make it a point to sock away tax refunds, year-end bonuses, overtime pay, and any other extra money you receive

4. Mentally divide your portfolio into growth money and safe money – and expect a rough ride from the former and comfort from the latter

5. The harder you try to beat the market, the more likely you are to fail, thanks to the investment costs involved.

6. By building a portfolio that is unlikely to suffer big short-term losses, you should improve your long-run investment compounding.

7. Unless your health is poor, plan on a retirement that lasts until age 90 – and maybe longer.

8. Resist following the crowd, whether it’s chasing hot performers in bull markets or shunning stocks during market declines.

9. Before purchasing a house, make sure you will stay put for at least five years and preferably longer.

10. If you’re a conservative investor inclined to buy bonds, consider making extra principal payments on your mortgage instead.

1. Our finances are bigger than a brokerage account

2. We can’t have it all

3. Money can buy happiness – if we spend it carefully

8. Stocks are worth SOMETHING

9. To add wealth, we need to overcome the subtractions

11. Wild investments can tame our portfolios

12. Short-term results matter to long-term investors

13. A long life is a big risk

14. Markets may be rational, but we aren’t

15. Our homes are a fine investment that won’t appreciate much

16. Paying off debts could be our best bond investment

17. Saving taxes can cost us dearly

18. A tax deferred is extra money made

19. Insurance won’t make us any money – if we’re lucky

20. Even if we have a will, we may not get our way

21. Financial success: it’s about more than money

From the Inside Flap:

In a financial world gone mad, you still need to manage your money, put your kids through college, and save for retirement. To the rescue comes Jonathan Clements with 21 easy-to-follow rules to help you secure your financial future. Clements has spent a quarter century demystifying Wall Street for ordinary, real people on Main Street, including more than thirteen years as the Wall Street Journal's hugely popular personal-finance columnist.

In The Little Book of Main Street Money, Clements brings us back to basics, with commonsense suggestions for intelligent money management. Chock-full of financial guidance that will stand up in any market, the book also reflects a financial philosophy that Clements has developed over a lifetime of watching Wall Street and writing about money-and that is even more important in the current volatile market. From the big picture (home, retirement, financial happiness) to the micro (taxes, inflation, investment costs), he offers clear-cut advice for taking control of your financial life, detailing the strategies needed to thrive in today's tough economic times.

The 21 truths outlined throughout this book are a guiding light for everyone, young and old, whether starting out or soon retiring. Each chapter reads like a Clements column-clear, pithy, and feisty. From the obvious to the counterintuitive, the truths will bolster your returns, cut your costs, and give you financial peace of mind. Collectively, the 21 truths show you how to think about your entire financial life-not just stocks and bonds, but your home, your debts, your financial promises to your children, your income-earning ability, and so much more. They will help you not only survive today's treacherous financial terrain, but also prepare you for success tomorrow.

Renowned for his spirited writing and shrewd investment guidance, Clements is the sane voice investors need to stay grounded in the midst of so much financial insanity.
