Praise for Wise Investing Made Simpler

"I am an endowed professor of investments at Baylor University. I am well paid, widely quoted and considered an expert in investments. Yet, I do not own single individual security. Instead, I invest in a globally diversified portfolio of low-cost index funds and ETFs—the same strategy advocated in this book. Why? Based on decades of my research and that of others, in my opinion, it is the best way to manage money. Like many finance professors, I heed the advice advocated in this book and I encourage you to do the same."

— Dr. William Reichenstein, CFA, Pat and Thomas R. Powers Chair in Investment Management, Hankamer School of Business, Baylor University

"Larry's insights on investing has little in common with the self-interested advice of Wall Street or the popular financial press. Instead, it's culled from the best, most rigorous research on what really works. The amazing thing you will learn is that wise—and successful—investing really is simple. And the evidence for it, which Larry illustrates in a pleasing, true-to-life narrative style, is irrefutable.

— Eric Schurenberg, Editor in Chief, CBS and
