Professional Reviews

'There is actually so much in The Book of Investing Rules that it is like a condensed library of the best financial publications. While many 'how to invest' books are a good one-off read this one goes a lot further: serious investors will mark and linger over key passages; re-read important sections many times over; and reference favourite contributions as a touchstone for developing and refining their own investment approaches. A real treasure chest of insights and ideas that we think readers of Techinvest will find both enjoyable and useful.' - Conor McCarthy, Techinvest

'Investing Rules is compiled by Philip Jenks and Stephen Eckett of the Global Investor bookshop. They must have asked every author on their shelves - and a few others besides - to write down 10 useful rules for investors. About 150 responded. The outcome is a fascinating patchwork quilt with every strand of the subject briefly represented.' - Alistair Blair, Investors Chronicle

'This is not a work designed to be read through, but should be used as a reference work, to be dipped into when appropriate. At �19.99 for around 500 pages, it offers terrific value when compared with the extortionate cost of much investment advice offered by so-called financial professionals. The Global-Investor Book of Investing Rules will almost certainly prove to be the most useful financial book published all year.' - Luke Johnson, The Sunday Telegraph
