First, he has tons of experience actually investing. Second, other financial advisors seek his wisdom on how to invest. Third, he offers wisdom, not merely in-the-moment advice. In other words, he takes the long view. Fourth, he organizes his wisdom around issues people frequently ask about.

Certainly, everyone knows how the scales of wise investing work. That is to say, wisdom and foolishness are the two sides of the balance.

Although this anthology offers serious food for thought about financial matters, it is anything but boring and stuffy.
How to Apply Financial Wisdom
In a nutshell, this book distills Ineichen’s collection of over 700 quotations of wit and wisdom. Engagingly, he draws on sources from ancient Greece, to the Middle Ages, to modern Rock-n-Roll. Where else would you find Aristotle, Thomas Aquinas, Frank Zappa, and Barack Obama in the same conversation? Moreover, he offers nuggets of wisdom for individual investors, entreprenuers, business and corporate leaders, not to mention everyone in the financial industry and the general audience alike. And the icing on the cake—Ineichen adds his unique take on these witty sayings. Thus, his commentary builds a bridge between the wisdom offered and the practical decisions facing those dealing with financial risk and uncertainty.
Importantly, these witticisms offer level-headed, truth seeking, brutally heretical, and wonderfully insightful advice. Further, Ineichen’s comments are refreshingly politically incorrect, along with his other intellectual treats and provocations. Finally, judge for yourself, whether applying the wisdom offered in this book returns positive results.
