<b>#1 <i>New York Times </i>Bestseller</b><BR> <BR><b>“Significant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.” —<i>The New York Times</i></b><BR> <BR><b>Ray Dalio, one of the world’s most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he’s developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business—and which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals.</b><BR><BR>In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to <i>Fortune</i> magazine. Dalio himself has been named to <i>Time </i>magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater’s exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as “an idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.” It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio—who grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood—that he believes are the reason behind his success.<BR> <BR>In <i>Principles, </i>Dalio shares what he’s learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book’s hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of “radical truth” and “radical transparency,” include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating “baseball cards” for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses, and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, <i>Principles</i> also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they’re seeking to achieve.<BR> <BR>Here, from a man who has been called both “the Steve Jobs of investing” and “the philosopher king of the financial universe” (<i>CIO </i>magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you’ll find in the conventional business press.

<b>Harry S. Dent Jr., bestselling author of <i>The Demographic Cliff</i> and <i>The Sale of a Lifetime</i>, predicted the populist wave that has driven the Brexit vote, the election of Donald Trump, and other recent shocks around the world. Now he returns with the definitive guide to protect your investments and prosper in the age of the anti-globalist backlash.<br /></b><br />The turn of the 2020s will mark an extremely rare convergence of low points for multiple political, economic, and demographic cycles. The result will be a major financial crash and global upheaval that will dwarf the Great Recession of the 2000s—and maybe even the Great Depression of the 1930s. We’re facing the onset of what Dent calls “Economic Winter.”<br />  <br /> In <i>Zero Hour</i>, he and Andrew Pancholi (author of <i>The Market Timing Report </i>newsletter) explain all of these cycles, which influence everything from currency valuations to election returns, from economic growth rates in Asia to birthrates in Europe. You’ll learn, for instance:<br /><br />   • Why the most-hyped technologies of recent years (self-driving cars, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, blockchain) won’t pay off until the 2030s. <br />   • Why China may be the biggest bubble in the global economy (and you’d be a fool to invest there). <br />   • Why you should invest in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, and pull out of real estate and automotive. <br />   • Why putting your faith in gold is a bad idea. <br />  <br /> Fortunately, <i>Zero Hour</i> includes a range of practical strategies to help you turn the upheaval ahead to your advantage, so your family can be prepared and protected.

<b>Now updated with new research—the book that has changed millions of lives</b><br /><br /> After decades of research, world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol S. Dweck, Ph.D., discovered a simple but groundbreaking idea: the power of mindset. In this brilliant book, she shows how success in school, work, sports, the arts, and almost every area of human endeavor can be dramatically influenced by how we think about our talents and abilities. People with a <i>fixed mindset</i>—those who believe that abilities are fixed—are less likely to flourish than those with a <i>growth mindset</i>—those who believe that abilities can be developed. <i>Mindset</i> reveals how great parents, teachers, managers, and athletes can put this idea to use to foster outstanding accomplishment.<br /><br /> In this edition, Dweck offers new insights into her now famous and broadly embraced concept. She introduces a phenomenon she calls false growth mindset and guides people toward adopting a deeper, truer growth mindset. She also expands the mindset concept beyond the individual, applying it to the cultures of groups and organizations. With the right mindset, you can motivate those you lead, teach, and love—to transform their lives and your own.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>Mindset</i></b><br /><br />“A good book is one whose advice you believe. A great book is one whose advice you follow. This is a book that can change your life, as its ideas have changed mine.”<b>—Robert J. Sternberg, co-author of <i>Teaching for Wisdom, Intelligence, Creativity, and Success</i></b><br /><br />“An essential read for parents, teachers [and] coaches . . . as well as for those who would like to increase their own feelings of success and fulfillment.”<b><i>—Library Journal </i>(starred review)</b><br /><br />“Everyone should read this book.”<b>—Chip Heath and Dan Heath, authors of <i>Made to Stick</i></b><br /><br />“One of the most influential books ever about motivation.”<b>—Po Bronson, author of <i>NurtureShock</i></b><br /> <br />“If you manage people or are a parent (which is a form of managing people), drop everything and read <i>Mindset</i>.”<b>—Guy Kawasaki, author of <i>The Art of the Start 2.0</i></b>

<p><b>The best-selling investing "bible" offers new information, new insights, and new perspectives </b></p> <p><i>The Little Book of Common Sense Investing</i> is the classic guide to getting smart about the market. Legendary mutual fund  pioneer John C. Bogle reveals his key to getting more out of investing: low-cost index funds. Bogle describes the simplest and most effective investment strategy for building wealth over the long term: buy and hold, at very low cost, a mutual fund that tracks a broad stock market Index such as the S&P 500.</p> <p>While the stock market has tumbled and then soared since the first edition of <i>Little Book of Common Sense</i> was published in April 2007, Bogle’s investment principles have endured and served investors well.  This tenth anniversary edition includes updated data and new information but maintains the same long-term perspective as in its predecessor. </p> <p>Bogle has also added two new chapters designed to provide further guidance to investors:  one on asset allocation, the other on retirement investing.</p> <p>A portfolio focused on index funds is the only investment that effectively guarantees your fair share of stock market returns. This strategy is favored by Warren Buffett, who said this about Bogle: “If a statue is ever erected to honor the person who has done the most for American investors, the hands-down choice should be Jack Bogle. For decades, Jack has urged investors to invest in ultra-low-cost index funds. . . . Today, however, he has the satisfaction of knowing that he helped millions of investors realize far better returns on their savings than they otherwise would have earned. He is a hero to them and to me.”</p> <p>Bogle shows you how to make index investing work for you and help you achieve your financial goals, and finds support from some of the world's best financial minds: not only Warren Buffett, but Benjamin Graham, Paul Samuelson, Burton Malkiel, Yale’s David Swensen, Cliff Asness of AQR, and many others.</p> <p>This new edition of <i>The</i> <i>Little Book of Common Sense Investing</i> offers you the same solid strategy as its predecessor for building your financial future.</p> <ul> <li>Build a broadly diversified, low-cost portfolio without the risks of individual stocks, manager selection, or sector rotation.</li> <li>Forget the fads and marketing hype, and focus on what works in the real world.</li> <li>Understand that stock returns are generated by three sources (dividend yield, earnings growth, and change in market valuation) in order to establish rational expectations for stock returns over the coming decade.</li> <li>Recognize that in the long run, business reality  trumps market expectations.</li> <li>Learn how to harness the magic of compounding returns while avoiding the tyranny of compounding costs.</li> </ul> <p>While index investing allows you to sit back and let the market do the work for you, too many investors trade frantically, turning a winner’s game into a loser’s game. <i>The Little Book of Common Sense Investing</i> is a solid guidebook to your financial future.</p>

“In the dark, bewildering, trap-infested jungle of misinformation and opaque riddles that is the world of investment, JL Collins is the fatherly wizard on the side of the path, offering a simple map, warm words of encouragement and the tools to forge your way through with confidence. You'll never find a wiser advisor with a bigger heart.” -- Malachi Rempen: Filmmaker, cartoonist, author and self-described ruffian<br /><br />This book grew out of a series of letters to my daughter concerning various things—mostly about money and investing—she was not yet quite ready to hear.<br /><br />Since money is the single most powerful tool we have for navigating this complex world we’ve created, understanding it is critical.<br /><br />“But Dad,” she once said, “I know money is important. I just don’t want to spend my life thinking about it.” This was eye-opening. I love this stuff. But most people have better things to do with their precious time. Bridges to build, diseases to cure, treaties to negotiate, mountains to climb, technologies to create, children to teach, businesses to run.<br /><br />Unfortunately, benign neglect of things financial leaves you open to the charlatans of the financial world. The people who make investing endlessly complex, because if it can be made complex it becomes more profitable for them, more expensive for us, and we are forced into their waiting arms.<br /><br />Here’s an important truth: Complex investments exist only to profit those who create and sell them. Not only are they more costly to the investor, they are less effective.<br /><br />The simple approach I created for her and present now to you, is not only easy to understand and implement, it is more powerful than any other.<br /><br />Together we’ll explore:<br /><br /><li>Debt: Why you must avoid it and what to do if you have it.</li><br /><li>The importance of having F-you Money.</li><br /><li>How to think about money, and the unique way understanding this is key to building your wealth.</li><br /><li>Where traditional investing advice goes wrong and what actually works.</li><br /><li>What the stock market really is and how it really works.</li><br /><li>Why the stock market always goes up and why most people still lose money investing in it.</li><br /><li>How to invest in a raging bull, or bear, market.</li><br /><li>Specific investments to implement these strategies.</li><br /><li>The Wealth Building and Wealth Preservation phases of your investing life and why they are not always tied to your age.</li><br /><li>How your asset allocation is tied to those phases and how to choose it.</li><br /><li>How to simplify the sometimes confusing world of 401(k), 403(b), TSP, IRA and Roth accounts.</li><br /><li>TRFs (Target Retirement Funds), HSAs (Health Savings Accounts) and RMDs (Required Minimum Distributions).</li><br /><li>What investment firm to use and why the one I recommend is so far superior to the competition.</li><br /><li>Why you should be very cautious when engaging an investment advisor and whether you need to at all.</li><br /><li>Why and how you can be conned, and how to avoid becoming prey.</li><br /><li>Why I don’t recommend dollar cost averaging.</li><br /><li>What financial independence looks like and how to have your money support you.</li><br /><li>What the 4% rule is and how to use it to safely spend your wealth.</li><br /><li>The truth behind Social Security.</li><br /><li>A Case Study on how this all can be implemented in real life.</li><br /><br />Don’t let any of this intimidate you. Those that have gone before you say:<br /><br />“….in his patented no-frills and often humorous style, JL makes it both approachable and simple. And powerful.”<br />“…effective message told in a visual, funny style.”<br />“…a refreshingly unique and approachable take on investing.”<br />“JL Collins has the gift of making boring financial concepts funny and interesting.”<br />“Instead of esoteric equations about measuring a stock's alpha and comparing it to its beta, he lights up the campfire and starts telling stories.”<br /><br />Enjoy the read, and the journey!

<p>In his entertaining and informative style that has captivated generations, beloved <em>New York Times</em> bestselling author, actor, and financial expert Ben Stein sets the record straight about capitalism in the United States—it is not the "rigged system" young people are led to believe. As he reveals in <em>The Capitalist Code</em>, "Life can be faced by moaning and complaining or it can be faced by study, work, optimism, and faith in the free capitalist system. Guess which side gets the happier life?"</p><br /><p><br />Most Americans have not inherited wealth or a successful business that could set them up for life. That means most Americans are destined for financial worry and concern for the rest of their lives. Right? Wrong! Ben Stein explains how the wonderful system of stock market capitalism can allow any American to build financial security. In this succinct guide, you will learn: <br /><br /></p><br /><ul><br /><li>Why it really is better to have money— and how to get there</li><br /><li>How to save first, and then spend— automatically</li><br /><li>Why investing in great companies is easier than you think</li><br /></ul><br /><p><br />That's what this book is all about: how to harness the incredible power of the U.S. economy for enjoyment and security by being owners of profitable businesses-by consistent, conservative investment starting as young as possible in a diversified port- folio of stocks. Anyone can be a capitalist—and should be. All it takes is a little bit of knowledge and an even smaller amount of action. All it takes is <em>The Capitalist Code</em>.</p>
