Review

The Wall Street Journal Bestseller - Hardcover Business

From the Back Cover

“Read Jack Ablin's ‘five factor' approach to investing and you not only will sleep better at night, you'll be a smarter, wiser human being. Ablin takes you on his twenty-year journey toward a unified, rational approach to investing that can help you weather even the most turbulent financial storms. This book may be one of the best investments you will ever make.”

--John Callaway, Senior Correspondent, WTTW, Public Television

 

“This book is based on verifiable data trends and years of experience with a broad array of economic and market numbers. Regret over investment losses need not lead investors to disengage their brains or to be robbed again by schemes hawked as ‘new and improved.'Reading Minds and Marketswill help jump-start an honest investment dialogue that has been sidetracked by excesses of greed and fear.”

--Bill Barnhart, Former Financial Editor and Columnist for the Chicago Tribune

 

“The author has taken the complex world of investing and provided an extremely practical approach to success where others have failed miserably. His grasp of the financial markets makes him eminently qualified to develop an extremely sound and practical approach in order to protect and enhance wealth for investors.”

--Edward (“Ned”) Riley, Jr., Former Chief Investment Officer for State Street Global Advisors and Chief Investment Officer, Riley Asset Management

 

“With nearly three decades of experience, Jack Ablin's superb intellectual thinking is reflected inReading Minds and Markets. This is great reading for the motivated investor.”

--Professor Israel Shaked, Finance and Economics Department, Boston University, School of Management

 

Youcando more to protect yourself from market risks and down markets. The secret: Understand the big picture and know when to shift money toward more promising industry groups, sectors, or asset classes. This strategy is called “global macro investing”--and, as Chief Investment Officer for Harris Private Bank, Jack Ablin has used it to deliver results for many of the world's wealthiest families and individuals.

 

InReading Minds and Markets,Ablin distills his techniques into a remarkably simple, commonsense five-step plan thatanyinvestor can use. You'll discover how to anticipate some of the more significant shifts in global markets and move investments toward areas that are more likely to grow. Equally important, you'll learn how to overcome bad habits that inevitably lead to failure--habits all too often reinforced by the financial media.

 

In today's unforgiving markets, you need to make smarter high-level decisionsandfewer mistakes: This book will help you do both.

  • Why youmusttake a top-down view of the market--and how to do it
    Avoid getting caught off-guard in choppy, highly volatile markets
  • Respond to the market's powerful signals about relative risk
    Master strategies for improving return without  increasing risk
  • Discover the five factors that consistently tell you where to invest
    Cut through the clutter of irrelevant data: find what matters and use it
  • Stop being your own worst enemy
    Overcome the #1 obstacle to structuring your best portfolio: human nature
