Editor's Note

Start investing the right way…

Don’t let the complexity of making good investment choices deter you from getting started. Danielle Town and her simplified 12 lessons will get you on track and keep you in line.

Description

In this essential handbook—a blend of Rich Dad, Poor Dad and The Happiness Project—the co-host of the wildly popular InvestED podcast shares her yearlong journey learning to invest, as taught to her by her father, investor and bestselling author Phil Town.

Growing up, the words finance, savings, and portfolio made Danielle Town's eyes glaze over, and the thought of stocks and financial statements shut down her brain. The daughter of a successful investor and bestselling financial author of Rule #1, Phil Town, she spent most of her adult life avoiding investing—until she realized that her time-consuming career as lawyer was making her feel anything but in control of her life or her money. Determined to regain her freedom, vote for her values with her money, and deal with her fear of the unpredictable stock market, she turned to her father, Phil, to help her take charge of her life and her future through Warren Buffett-style value investing. Over the course of a year, Danielle went from avoiding everything to do with the financial industrial complex to knowing exactly how and when to invest in wonderful companies.

In Invested, Danielle shows you how to do the same: how to take command of your own life and finances by choosing companies with missions that match your values, using the same gold standard strategies that have catapulted Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger to the top of the Forbes 400. Avoiding complex math and obsolete financial models, she turns her father's investing knowledge into twelve easy-to understand lessons.

In each chapter, Danielle examines the investment strategies she mastered as her increasing know-how deepens the trust between her and her father. Throughout, she streamlines the process of making wise financial decisions and shows you just how easy—and profitable—investing can be.

Capturing a warm, charming, and down-to-earth give and take between a headstrong daughter and her mostly patient dad, Invested makes the complex world of investing simple, straightforward, and approachable, and will help you formulate your own investment plan—and foster the confidence to put it into action.

Critic reviews

  • The co-host of InvestED, Danielle Town, seems like she'd be an expert in investing; after all, her father is the investor and bestselling author Phil Town. But it turns out she avoided the stock market for the majority of her adult life. Finally deciding to conquer her fears, she has her father walk her through the tips and tricks of the market, and the best ways to vote with your wallet. The result? An educational — and entertaining — listen, for people on any step of their investing journey.

    This definitely isn’t much of an educational book as much as it is a biography of her self-transformation. Most of the book revolves around her theme of anxiety, fear, and emotional issues. She mainly discusses her father issues and her apparent ability to turn her life around because of her courage (not because of her father which by the way she has had for decades before). Only when she had her only selfish gains did she negotiate her hatred of her father. He even hints at the end that the only reason they even talked and developed a better relationship was because of her desire for her own selfish financial independence. So this isn’t really even a book about improving relationships or an educational manual. So I’m not sure what it is except a disorganized and chaotic ranting of a millennial that leveraged something she neglected this whole time.

    I have listened tor this book twice now. It has made my understanding of investing a lot better and easier. Thank you Phil and Danielle for this wonderful investing practice, the one I am going to follow. I will probably read this book a few times and I can't wait to get Rule #1 from Phil this week or the next.

    Deep dive into learning about value investing. The different ways a relationship can be built and shared. Learning new terminology that might still sound like gibberish after the first listen, but interesting enough to make you listen to it again until you get it. Good job with the book.

    Overall it is a good book for anyone who is a novice to mid-level investor. The # 1 piece of advice is do one's research and understand the basics of investing, risks and vehicles. I do think the book could be shorter in some areas but enjoyed it overall.

    Thank you Danielle for your honesty I really enjoyed the book!! I really brought it home for me when you shared about your father and how the weekly calls brought you together.

    I got about 40% through it and it was all pure fluff. I feel somewhat scammed that they strung me along as long as they did. If you are interested in listening to the author whine about her childhood or describe what candle she is going to use when doing stock research then this is the book for you.
