What the experts are saying about INVESTMENT ILLUSIONS

"One of the most entertaining, readable, and well–informed books on personal investing that I have seen. With erudition and wit, Fridson takes aim at the shibboleths, sacred cows, and snakeoil salesmen of the personal investing industry. Investment Illusions is a practical and engaging ′how–not–to′ guide." Stuart C. Gilson, Assistant Professor of Business Administration, Harvard University.

"Investment Illusions presents much good financial advice and a great deal of financial history, especially recent financial history, in an easy–to–read style. I enjoyed it." Harry M. Markowitz, Nobel Laureate in Economics, Marvin Speiser Professor of Finance and Economics, Baruch College.

"Once in a while, you read a book which makes you think, ′I wish I′d read this book ten years ago.′ Investment Illusions is such a book. I found it highly entertaining as well as instructive the kind of book you pass on to a friend." Richard Lehmann, President, Bond Investors Association.

"Illusions can seem tangible and yet be fallacious. As usual, Marty Fridson uncovers minefields in some of the most important investment fundamentals in a clever and intuitive fashion." Tony Kao, Director of Investment Research, General Motors Investment Management Corporation.
