How to smell a rat : the five signs of financial f...

Starred Review. With five straightforward rules that would have saved any investor from Bernie Madoff, investment firm CEO and Forbes columnist Fisher (100 Minds That Made the Market) gives readers a secure plan for fraud-proof investing, worthwhile for novices and sophisticated financiers alike. Using the example of everyman "Jim," a precarious investor navigating shark-filled waters, Fisher presents a clear, fast-paced, tightly organized guide to principles like "Too good to be true usually is," and "Due diligence is your job, no one else's." Fully-referenced data, insider details, laser-focused statistical digressions, and the finer points of practical investing keep pages turning. Readers will value the practical, easy-to-follow models of solid, transparent investment strategies and examples from Fisher's experiences as CEO of his own investment firm. Fisher also includes suggestions for further reading and appendices that reproduce previously-published comparisons of different asset allocations, information for small business owners and short biographies of market-movers. Much more than what to avoid, Fisher's concise guide should be highly illuminating and confidence-building for anyone with a bank account
