Good readable book on how to invest. A few points:

• 80% of Mutual funds loose the the stock market average. Investing in an index fund that mirrors the market average will do better than mutual funds (especially since they have fees) over the long run.
• The first goal of investing is to get a greater return than 11% (which has been the historical average of the market over a 100 year period).
• Not taking enough risk is also a very risky decision.

I feel like my financial IQ has increased.
