"The content of this book lives up to the title. Ben Carlson has mastered the art of exposing the few big topics that matter most to investors, leaving out the complicated but often unnecessary topics found in other investment books. Any investor, from a beginner to a professional, can learn a tremendous amount from A Wealth of Common Sense."
Morgan Housel, columnist for The Motley Fool and the Wall Street Journal
"Through hard work Ben Carlson has rapidly established himself as one of the nation′s premier investment bloggers. In his new book, A Wealth of Common Sense, Carlson cements his position as a prudent and practical voice for the individual investor."
Tadas Viskanta, founder and editor of Abnormal Returns and author of Abnormal Returns: Winning Strategies from the Frontlines of the Investment Blogosphere
"Ben Carlson seemingly came out of nowhere and took the financial commentariat by storm with his straightforward, insightful blog posts. True investing wisdom born out of experience and success cannot be faked; it must be earned. This is precisely the type of wisdom that comes oozing out of every chapter in A Wealth Of Common Sense."
Downtown Josh Brown, author of the bestselling book Backstage Wall Street and The Reformed Broker blog, star of CNBC′s The Halftime Report,
YOUR NO–NONSENSE GUIDE TO COMMON SENSE INVESTING
Cut through the confusion and noise and focus on what actually matters. A Wealth of Common Sense clears the air and gives you the insight you need to become a smarter, more successful investor.

Take a look inside for guidance on how to:
  • Keep up with or beat professional money managers
  • Exploit stock market volatility to your utmost advantage
  • Learn where advisors and consultants fit into a smart strategy
  • Build a portfolio that makes sense for your particular situation
