D.Capiello, S.Tanaka – You Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Stockbroker This book is written for all people who would like to enter the world of investing, but just don’t know how to get started. Unlike books written for “idiots” or “dummies” this book is geared toward intelligent people who simply need a bit of knowledge and advice. It starts with a primer on stocks, bonds and mutual funds, and proceeds to describe the important concepts of asset allocation, diversification, risk and dollar-cost averaging. It proceeds to a step-by-step guide to getting started and maintaining your own investment portfolio. The book is written by two physicians who learned the hard way about investing while running a busy clinical practice. While not professional investors, the authors are quite experienced through investing their own money and assisting friends and colleagues with their finances. The book is written in plain English, and does not resort to jargon or cartoons to keep the reader’s attention. Many thanks go to Carolyn Smith, a professional investment advisor, who supplied technical support and to Bonnie Monte, a professional editor, who edited the manuscript.
