You've probably got the original it was a million-copy best seller so here's a revised version covering new laws and the joys of the Internet.

Tobias wrote The Only Investment Guide nearly 20 years ago, and it instantly became a best-seller. Over the years, it achieved status as an investment classic, even though Tobias had to renege on the title's promise, offering follow-ups with such qualifiers as "still the only . . ." and "the only other . . . ." He has revised and updated his guide, noting that when the first version came out, checking accounts did not pay interest, there were no ATM networks, and the average trading volume on the New York Stock Exchange was almost 12 times less than on a slow day now. Even taking into account all the changes, Tobias' basic advice remains the same: keep it safe and keep it simple. Irreverent (and sometimes flip) and entertaining, Tobias serves up his tips with iconoclastic common sense.
