Praise for Jackass Investing




"With Jackass Investing, Michael Dever systematically refutes 20 common investment myths while also providing readers with a process for creating their own 'Free Lunch' portfolio of both greater returns and lower risk. Read this book."
  Michael W. Covel,
author of Trend Following and The Complete TurtleTrader

"This book should be read by any investor considering investing in the stock market before they make big mistakes, as well as by experienced investors who are unsure of what they are doing. Written by an experienced money manager, Dever offers the unvarnished truth about the way Wall Street works to the detriment investors' best interests. Buy-and-hold is too dangerous and risky. That is why he lays out strategies to make money on a consistent basis. I highly recommend this well-written and enlightening book to all investors."
  Leslie N. Masonson, Author of Buy DON'T Hold and All About Market Timing

"Dever makes two potent points: don't invest like a jackass, and take advantage of all the jackasses out there. I wish him great success with the book, but not too much, as it would make my job more difficult!"
  Michael H. Trenk, Chief Operating Officer, ALVA CAPITAL

"All right, you're guilty! I have no time to do anything, yet I have finished your book. Like a drug addict blaming their pusher. I'd read a few pages at a time. Man it was GREAT! I loved it. I felt like I was watching Perry Mason tear up a prosecutor with a weak case."
  Robb Ross - Principal of White Indian Trading Co. Ltd.
a Commodity Trading Advisor.

"Jackass Investing is a fascinating, 'must-read' for every investor. In plain English and with easy-to-understand examples, Mike Dever explains how 'drawdown' is every investor's true measure of risk (not volatility) and how 'correlation kills' an investor's opportunity for real returns. Most importantly, Mike provides specific investment strategies that outperform the herd, in stark contrast to the risky and conventional 'buy and hold' advice. This book is both timely and timeless."
  Doug Bloom, CEO, RealWinWin, Inc.

"Investing is full of unexpected pitfalls, but Mike Dever gives active investors a road map for avoiding them. Using statistics, research and his professional experience, Dever sheds lights on many common investing concepts and provides alternative strategies that are designed to beat the market."
  Charles Rotblut, CFA, Vice President, American Association of Individual Investors;

About the Book
Jackass Investing systematically rips apart the conventional investment wisdom - myth by myth - then replaces it with a "return driver" based methodology that results in a 'Free Lunch' portfolio - one that produces both greater returns and lower risk. More than ten years in the making, and supported by the twin pillars of extensive research and more than 30 years of trading experience, this book finally lays to rest the traditional investment paradigm.

As you might have guessed, this is not your typical investment book. "Controversial" and "ground-breaking" are two words that have been used to describe it. Jackass Investing presents an entirely new, and eminently logical, process for investing - all of it supported by numerous relevant facts and studies. But Jackass Investing is not a dense financial tome. It is extremely readable and includes entertaining and relevant references to popular culture - such as Criss Angel's magic, George Costanza on Seinfeld, the rock band Rush and heavyweight boxing contender "Fast" Eddie Chambers - to help describe investment concepts in a truly approachable way.

Perhaps most importantly, the book is also highly practical, as this web site includes specific actions you can take to turn your "Poor-folio" into a truly diversified portfolio that can make you money in even the harshest environments. This is certainly the one book that will transform your way of thinking about money and how you invest it.
