Publisher's Summary

Are you searching for a simple path to financial freedom? Are you worried about your retirement but don't want to deal with the complexity of investing and the financial services industry? Fed up with 0% interest, but don't know anything about investing?

You're in the right place.

The 80/20 Investor, harnessing the power of the 80/20 principle, simplifies investing. In no time, you will learn the basics of investing, how to finance your investments, where to look for "no-brainer" opportunities, and understand real investment risk and how to reduce it. This book allows you to enter the seemingly intimidating world of investing, with constructive tips from some of those who have changed the game - The Rothschilds, Hetty Green, J. Paul Getty, Henry Singleton, and others.

After listening to The 80/20 Investor you will know:

  • How to apply the 80/20 Principle to financial freedom and the three pillars of 80/20 Investing.
  • How to reduce your investment workload, by focusing only on the most valuable investment opportunities and achieve better performance than professionals.
  • Learn how to improve your investment decision making by using the 80/20 principle and effective "mental models."
  • Find the best investment opportunities by obeying the "investment seasons" and using the "magic categories" to find no-brainer opportunities.
  • And much, much more.

Who this book is for

Whether you're a complete investing novice or you already have your own investment portfolio, The 80/20 Investor is for people who understand that a basic education in investing is necessary for a path to financial freedom. Yet, have very little time to study investing extensively or trust Wall Street to manage their portfolios. It's for individual investors and entrepreneurs who have day jobs and businesses to take care of.

Good Book, But ...

It is a good book for beginner who needs the basic knowledge about investment. It does summarize lots of details in the investment world.

I expect to have more in-deep knowledge or experience about 80/20 investment such as a hypothetical case study created by you ( not the ones in 1930s or 1970s), how to initiate it and modify it under certain circumstances and so on.
