I’ve got a big announcement for today: The final draft for my upcoming book–the companion book to this blog–was just approved. (I’ve been working on this thing since late last summer, so it’s good to finally get it out the door!)
A little bit about the book:
What is Oblivious Investing about?
Oblivious Investing is not written to be an “everything-you-need-to-know-about-personal-finance” sort of book.
Rather, the book is a story that seeks to convey one idea–the idea that long-term investing is a fairly straightforward endeavor, and it has absolutely nothing to do with all the craziness that we see in the markets from month to month.
Why is the book written as a story?
Investment books typically deal with data, charts, and so on. Investing in real life, however, deals with emotions–uncertainty, excitement, greed, confusion, fear, etc.
Oblivious Investing is written as a story in the hope of bringing the experience of reading the book closer to the real life experience of creating and implementing an investment plan.
In other words, the goal of the book is not just to explain the principles of prudent investing, but also to prepare the reader for some of the psychological challenges that will arise during a lifetime of investing.
Stay tuned for more info.
Like I said, the final draft was just approved, so it should be up on Amazon in the not-too-distant future. I’ll let you know once I know more.
