The Long and the Short of it: A Guide to Finance and Investment for Normally Intelligent People Who Aren’t in the Industry
Many friends over the years have asked me - ‘what can I read that tells me about finance and investment in a non-technical way but doesn’t insult my intelligence?’ Few books do this. I have often recommended Burton Malkiel’s A Random Walk down Wall Street, but that book is now old (first published in the 1970s) and very American. So I thought I would have a go myself. And the credit crunch made it all the more topical.
