The pefect investment strategy? Any reputable financial advisor will tell you there is no such thing, but authors Breck Speed and Mark Dutton are incurable optimists. For more than a decade they searched – like some financial Don Quixote and Sancho Panza – for an approach to investing “that results in better than average returns – maybe even an occasional home run – with zero risk.” Did they succeed? Of course not, but their journey of risk-versus-reward discovery paid off in this treasure trove of investment philosophy. Money Doesn’t Grow on Trees is a compendium of useful tips, theories, and old-fashioned common sense maxims encountered during their decade-long quest. Experienced investors, beginners, and even brokers will find plenty of valuable advice here. There is wisdom, too – some good, sound thinking – and the one thing every investor needs: a sense of humor.
