The Prepared Investor: How to Prevent the Next Crisis from Affecting Your Financial Independence by Christopher Manske

I am not a financial expert by any means.  I did grow up with a father who was a successful stockbroker for more than 50 years.  I learned a lot from paying attention to him but one thing I never have understood is why the market can react so violently to a perceived crisis.  This book actually answers my questions and explains in language the layperson can completely understand.  It really offers the investor a wealth (yes, pun) of usable information.  

Manske clearly defines what is a crisis and what is not, giving examples of both. He backs up all of his points with historical data, includes charts and graphs that are easy to follow, and provides workable tips. Manske meets his goal of giving the investor information that truly will make them prepared for the next real or perceived crisis.  Don’t join in the overreaction, read the book, and be prepared.
