"This wonderfully iconoclastic book drums home the message that beating the stock market is a loser's game. Larry Swedroe's new book tilts-successfully-at the windmills of professional managers, Wall Street analysts, owing 'the best 100 companies' (or the best ten funds), hedge funds market timers, investment newsletters, and short-term strategies. Once you're convinced by the powerful case the author has made, he then offers seven steps to playing a winner's game. The diagnosis is right on the mark, and his essential prescription-rely on portfolio construction, index funds, broad diversification, minimal costs and taxes, risk control, and time-also comes close to the center of the target: the optimal accumulation of your financial wealth."
