    Chem,

    What is wrong with Dave Ramsey? He teaches conservative financial values and no debt.

    For free reading, look at the return leaders of this board (not me), and read their past posts....

    I was thinking about picking up RevShark's book ... has anybody read it? Was it good, bad, so-so?

    I haven't started mine yet but one of our members told me they couldn't put it down once they started. I assume that means it starts out with his personal story rather than technical stuff.

    I plan to read it over my Christmas vacation.

    Just finished RevShark's book. Some personal take-aways:

    1) Noone investing in an index fund is going to make 10's of millions of dollars - an index just can't move 20% in a day or a month. So we may be able to make a couple of million over the long haul, but $10M or more is extremely unlikely.

    2) He makes some very good points on personal investors versus brokerage houses, all of which I think applies to us. However, with the proposed clamp-down on trading, we are not going to be as reactive as he suggests we should be. Hence, if you're thinking of applying his techniques, it might be worth while to roll over your TSP fund into some other company that would allow you to be more reactive. However, if you're still a Fed, you have great matching funds, so that is something to consider.

    All in all, a very enjoyable read. And (IMHO) there are some great truths to take from it ... one of which (concerning what drives the market) I have been saying for some time.

    Highly recommended.

    Thanks for the review Doc. I copied that post to the new book review sub-forum that you suggested. Good idea.

    Thanks again!

    Decent list of recommended reads from the manager of the Pinnacle Value Fund.

    Just finished reading "Master The Markets" by Tom Williams. He was a syndicate trader back in the 70's. He explains how the "smart money" minipulates the markets to their advantage and at our expense. The most eye opening investing book I've ever read in my 18 year investing career. It goes for $100 but you can download a pdf version at TradeTheTruth.com (click on their download link) It's 188 pages to print but I believe it's worth it. I'm starting my second read through now. Good stuff.

    Here's the link http://www.tradethetruth.com/downloads.html
