Great intro to asset allocation

Dr. Bernstein does a great job summarizing the passive investor's approach to asset allocation. This is a valuable book, whether you are a novice to investing, or want to hear the fine details about every asset class and the Gordon equation....I can't wait for the next edition of this book.

Another excellent read

There is some over lapping of materials but that for some this allows for a good refresher. Definately not a one time read, but bite size portions are unquestionately worth it.
