The Only Investment Guide you ‘ll ever need by Andrew Tobias is easily one of the best books I have ever read. Most of the investment/finance books are complex and hard to understand. I started reading one earlier and could not complete it (stayed away from finance books for a while). However this Investment guide is very simple and easy to understand. Reading this was like watching a fast paced movie and could not take my hands off it.
I have heard about a lot of things Andrew mentions in his book in the past. However never took it seriously. The simple way Andrew has presented it made me understand things better and forced me to take a look at my life-style and investments.
