“Bernstein has become a guru to a peculiarly ’90s group: well-educated, Internet-powered people intent on investing well—and with minimal ‘help’ from professional Wall Street.”
--Robert Barker, BusinessWeek

William Bernstein is one of today’s most unlikely financial heroes. A practicing neurologist, he used his self-taught investment knowledge and research to build a popular investor’s website.

A breath of fresh air for investors tired of overly technical investment tomes, this book will help investors:

  • Understand and apply portfolio theory for an improved risk/reward ratio
  • Sharpen their focus, and take control of their investment programsWilliam Bernstein runs a website—www.efficientfrontier.com—known for its quarterly journal of asset allocation and portfolio theory, Efficient Frontier.
