    Review by Library Journal (2001-11-01)

    The Gardner brothers, cofounder's of Fool. com, present two parts of their trilogy (third title, The Motley Fool's Rule Breakers, Rule Makers), which update original material with the latest trends in finance and investment. Throughout the briskly paced, crisp narration, their trademark focus remains on novice investors with minimal information about investments but who are ready to invest their precious capital. In Investment Guide, the Fools decipher how to evaluate individual stocks, create a diverse investment portfolio, and find high-growth stocks that will beat the market over the long run.

    Their explanation on how to pick that first stock, how to read various company financial reports, how to select large and small cap firms to invest in, and how to distinguish "Rule Breaker" from "Rule Maker" firms is tailored to the very patient individual investor wired to the Internet. In You Have More Than You Think, the duo focus on taking control of personal finances, the first and most important step toward successful investing and a secure future.

    For folks trying to balance lifestyle aspirations with financial realities, while serious about getting out of debt and into the stock market, their advice regarding financial security is solid. While very little here is radically new, with the resounding success of The Motley Fool, the Gardners' major web site, and their importance in the world of finance and investing, these hip titles are certainties for all public libraries.
