The little book that saves your assets : what the rich do to stay wealthy in up and down markets by David M Darst( )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Next in the Little Book, Big Profit series, The Little Book of Big Return, s shows the listener how to profit like the rich from a powerful, proven investment strategy. It was written by the leading thinker in asset allocation, David Darst. With somewhat of a dry reputation, the topic of asset allocation has been seen as a concern only to professionals and academics disputing research papers and academic theory. However the reality of the rich and their use of asset allocation tell a different story. Asset allocation is the ultimate determinant of returns and can make the difference between matching the market or beating the market (or not losing in the market). How assets are allocated (stocks, bonds, cash, other mix) does make a substantial difference to the average portfolio, and the wealthy have long used asset allocation strategies to increase their wealth -- substantially. Now these same strategies can be understood and used by anyone

The little book of behavioral investing : how not to be your own worst enemy by James Montier( )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ben Graham, the father of value investing, once said: "The investor's chief problem - and even his worst enemy - is likely to be himself." Sadly, Graham's words are still true today. Bias, emotion, and overconfidence are just three of the many behavioral traits that can lead investors to lose money or achieve lower returns. Fortunately, behavioral finance, which recognizes that there is a psychological element to all investor decision making, is now firmly embedded in the mainstream of finance. Applying behavioral principles to an investment portfolio can help investors avoid some of the mental pitfalls that so often cost them, and financial institutions, billions. In The Little Book of Behavioral Investing, behavioral finance expert James Montier takes you on a guided tour of the most common behavioral challenges and mental pitfalls that investors encounter, and provides you with strategies to eliminate these traits. Along the way, he shows how some of the world's best investors have tackled the behavioral biases that drag down investment returns, so that you might be able to learn from their experiences. Montier explains the importance of learning to prepare, plan, and then commit to a strategy - that is, do your investment research while you are in a "cold" rational state, when nothing much is happening in the markets - and then pre-commit to following your analysis and action steps. He also stresses the folly of trying to forecast what the markets will do, and reveals how the idea of investing without pretending you know the future gives you a very different perspective. Throughout the audio book, Montier stresses why the need to focus on process rather than outcomes is critical in investing. Focusing upon process, he shows, frees us up from worrying about aspects of investment that we really can't control - such as returns. By focusing upon process, we maximize our potential to generate good long-term profits. The Little Book of Behavioral Investing offers a range of time-tested ways to identify and avoid the pitfalls of investor bias. By following these simple strategies, you will learn to overcome your own worst enemy when it comes to investments - yourself

The mare by Mary Gaitskill( Recording )

17 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the author of Veronica, a finalist for the National Book Award for fiction, comes Mary Gaitskill's most poignant and powerful work yet: the story of a Dominican girl, the white woman who introduces her to riding, and the horse who changes everything for her. Velveteen Vargas is an eleven-year-old from Brooklyn who is granted a summer vacation in the country, courtesy of the nonprofit Fresh Air Fund. Her host family is a couple in upstate New York: Ginger, a failed artist on the fringe of Alcoholics Anonymous, and Paul, an academic who wonders what it will mean to "make a difference" in such a contrived situation. Here we see the couple's changing relationship with Velvet over the course of several years, as well as Velvet's powerful encounter with the horses at the stable down the road, as Gaitskill weaves together Velvet's vital inner-city community and the privileged country world of Ginger and Paul. The timeless story of a girl and a horse is joined with the story of people from different races and socioeconomic backgrounds trying to meet one another honestly. It is a novel that is raw, striking, and completely original
