Abstract:

"Jackass Investing systematically rips apart the conventional investment wisdom - myth by myth - then replaces it with a return driver based methodology that results in a Free Lunch portfolio - one that produces both greater returns and lower risk. More than ten years in the making, and supported by the twin pillars of extensive research and more than 30 years of trading experience, this book finally lays to rest the traditional investment paradigm. As you might have guessed, this is not your typical investment book. Controversial and ground-breaking are two words that have been used to describe it. Jackass Investing presents an entirely new, and eminently logical, process for investing - all of it supported by numerous relevant facts and studies. But Jackass Investing is not a dense financial tome. It is extremely readable and includes entertaining and relevant references to popular culture - such as Criss Angel's magic, the rock band Rush and heavyweight boxing contender Fast Eddie Chambers - to help describe investment concepts in a truly approachable way. Perhaps most importantly, the book is also highly practical. As a bonus, the author has created a companion web site that includes specific actions you can take to turn your Poor-folio into a truly diversified portfolio - one that can make you money in even the harshest environments. This is certainly the one book that will transform your way of thinking about money and how you invest it."--Publishers description.
