Publisher's Summary

In this essential handbook - a blend of Rich Dad, Poor Dad and The Happiness Project - the cohost of the wildly popular InvestED podcast shares her yearlong journey learning to invest, as taught to her by her father, investor and best-selling author Phil Town. 

Growing up, the words finance, savings, and portfolio made Danielle Town's eyes glaze over, and the thought of stocks and financial statements shut down her brain. The daughter of a successful investor and best-selling financial author of Rule #1, Phil Town, she spent most of her adult life avoiding investing - until she realized that her time-consuming career as a lawyer was making her feel anything but in control of her life or her money. Determined to regain her freedom, vote for her values with her money, and deal with her fear of the unpredictable stock market, she turned to her father, Phil, to help her take charge of her life and her future through Warren Buffett-style value investing. Over the course of a year, Danielle went from avoiding everything to do with the financial industrial complex to knowing exactly how and when to invest in wonderful companies. 

In Invested, Danielle shows you how to do the same: how to take command of your own life and finances by choosing companies with missions that match your values, using the same gold-standard strategies that have catapulted Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger to the top of the Forbes 400. Avoiding complex math and obsolete financial models, she turns her father's investing knowledge into 12 easy-to-understand lessons. 

In each chapter Danielle examines the investment strategies she mastered as her increasing know-how deepened the trust between her and her father. Throughout, she streamlines the process of making wise financial decisions and shows you just how easy - and profitable - investing can be. 

Capturing a warm, charming, and down-to-earth give and take between a headstrong daughter and her mostly patient dad, Invested makes the complex world of investing simple, straightforward, and approachable and will help you formulate your own investment plan - and foster the confidence to put it into action. Supplemental enhancement PDF accompanies the audiobook. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Beginners Start Here.....

This book was an absolute delight to listen to. It isn’t complicated and easy to follow. Now having said this it piqued my curiosity into the Towns’ other channels. I have since started listening to the podcast. Why because once I understood the principles are simple (arduous but simple) I knew I could change my financial future. I have a long long way to go but thank you! I am a huge fan will continue on in my practice. Have since downloaded Rule #1 and Payback Time.
For others looking to get rich quick this isn’t a book for you. This is for those who are “capable” of understanding a wonderful business that aligns with your values.

Story telling and learning!

I love Danielle's take on her investing practice in the form of a story. I have read Phil Town's book, but Danielle is able to take it to the next level for people that haven't been interested in the investing world until now. She's opened the floodgates for me! #Audible1

Sooooo slow and unnecessarily drawn out 😩

Get to the point. 20 mins worth of information buried under boring, silver spoons life 101.

Not what I was expecting

I’m not sure what I was expecting from this book, maybe something new about investing? I kept wanting to like the book but it was 90% her life story and 10% about actually important information for a beginner like myself. I felt like a fish on a hook trying to keep biting the good info but instead just heard her story about her grandma, childhood and all the details that I really had no interest in.

Easily my fav of 2018

As an aspiring investor this book provides a great anchor where it’s not a super long how-to. I relate a lot to Danielle’s current market aptitude, and even though Math likes me, the story in this book made full use of my emotions. From feeling inspired at the end, to laughing uncontrollably during Danielle’s first practice shares experience. I loved this book and the Top 15 investor books on Phil’s website are part of my 2019 goals. I’ll be adding this book to my yearly re-reads.

As the first investment book, ok

Basic concepts, nice personal story. Hear it if you are new to investing.
If you expect deep calculations etc, don’t read.
Nice resources at the end.

Math much?

I enjoyed the audiobook. My problem is that the math in the given examples doesn’t add up.

Clarity is lost in audio.

She has a good story line, but hard to impossible to follow methods from an audio book. It would be much better as a physical book.

Great book to start learning value investing

This is a book for someone who wants to start value investing but does not know where to begin. I recommend this book to the young generation who wants to achieve financial freedom in the future years.

Best investment book for newbies ever...!

Loved it, the authors and narrators are great! The content is proposed has a novel of the author life. It is not a technical book
