Review:

"The irreverence [Jones] displays toward history as a predictor for investment is one of dozens of viewpoints that fly in the face of conventional portfolio–building wisdom." –– The Star–Telegram

"A very comprehensive book which covers risk versus rewards, past performance versus future expected returns, market timing versus long term investing, and investing in individual stocks versus investing in mutual funds. He also discusses diversification, fees and expenses, and the tax consequences of investing. All of his recommendations are backed up with extensive research and presented in an easy–to–understand manner."––Stockerblog

From the Back Cover:

Praise for The Intelligent Portfolio

"This is one of those rare investment books that actually raises your investment IQ. Christopher Jones′s ten basic rules get investors focused on what really matters. You may have heard some of these investment truths before, but probably never in a way that is so powerful and intuitive. Filled with practical and insightful examples, this book is a real eye–opener for anyone serious about planning for a bright financial future."
―Jane Bryant Quinn, columnist for Newsweek and Bloomberg.com and author of Smart and Simple Financial Strategies for Busy People

"Books on personal investing are a dime a dozen. But if we add them up, all those dimes come to plenty of money. This book is worth all that and lots more. With its strong foundation in theory, the depth of its insights, the power of its message, the clarity of its exposition, and the value of its examples, The Intelligent Portfolio is worth many multiples of anything else in this overcrowded field."
―Peter L. Bernstein, author of Capital Ideas Evolving

"Christopher Jones gives investors a guided tour of the inner workings of modern portfolio theory. If you prefer to look under the hood and kick the tires of your retirement plan, this hands–on manual can help you turbocharge your portfolio."
―Mary Beth Franklin, Senior Editor, Kiplinger′s Personal Finance

"Jones provides his readers with a refreshing investment guide, chock–full of pithy and pertinent advice. Can you ignore expenses if a manager exhibits excess performance? His no–nonsense advice, ′the view that you can ignore the impact of fees is just a bunch of hooey.′ And for those chasing yesterday′s hot funds, he reminds us that ′good funds are not defined by how well they have performed in the past, but how well they are likely to perform in the future.′ A quarter century of experience tells me readers will be better investors if they heed his easily digestible investment wisdom."
―Harold Evensky, CFP, President, Evensky & Katz
