Critic Reviews

"Having known Alex Green for more than 20 years, I can tell you there are few investment advisors with more intelligence, knowledge, and integrity. His Gone Fishin' Portfolio is a superb strategy for delivering top-tier investment results. It's smart. It's conservative. It takes very little time. And the returns have been superb." (Michael Masterson, best-selling author, Automatic Wealth: The Six Steps to Financial Independence and Ready, Fire, Aim: Zero to $100 Million in No Time Flat).

2/3-ok-advise; 1/3 paid for commercial

The first part of the book tells you why all of us should know that we know nothing. As an investor, if you haven't found that out yet it will save you a lot of money in the future. If you appreciate Mr. Green's advise, saving is the basis of all financial planning anyway. The second part of the book explains an easy way to manage your stock investment. Scintific literature suggests that you apply his rebalancing process to other asset classes - but the core of his adise is correct, hands on and easy to apply. In the third part of the book Mr. Green tells you - who, by now, knows that we all know nothing - why he knows more than anyone else and thus, why you should sign up to his newsletter. Advertisement is ok. However, it should reduce the price of the book and not be paid for by the reader.

The Gone Fishin' Portfolio

The most applicable investment book --pertaining to retirement/long term savings plan-- that I have ever read (and I have read quite a few). The book does a fantastic job of explaining the advantages of his portfolio, and he gives a step by step explanation of his positions (ticker symbol included) as well as his rationale for each position. I will likely utilize his portfolio for my retirement account because I agree that the portfolio will likely outperform the vast majority of financial advisers: at least net of fees.
