This book offers a somewhat rambling compendium of solid (if unoriginal) investment advice. Author Howard Ruff’s strength is his blunt, straightforward, unpretentious style. He covers a great deal of ground, discussing everything from the advisability of investing in gold to the principles of life and time management. Many readers will no doubt find this both useful and refreshing. Others will look for more depth – and the author obliges by including appendices with sources of additional information on various topics. getAbstract suggests this book to those who are new at financial planning and who lust for wealth, but are willing to settle for prosperity. And safety. And sound investing.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to get rich slowly; and
- Why this is a superior idea.
