Portfolio First Aid - 2005
Market fluctuations are a fact of life for all investors.  The challenge is to ensure our portfolios have the physical vitality to withstand the constant strain placed upon them by ever-changing markets.  Portfolio First Aid writes the prescriptions needed to heal all manner of investment injuries.  Suitable for all investors from the novice to the veteran, Portfolio First Aid provides a dose of clear, easy-to-follow preventive medicine to keep portfolios healthy and vibrant.

"We all make investment mistakes. Portfolio First Aid is packed with advice on how to avoid them - and with profit.  Eminently readable and practical, it is a prime and welcome addition tot he thoughtful investor's library."


"The authors of Portfolio First Aid have taken the principles of investing, which are often presented in overly complex terms, and made them simple and actionable.  Moreover, they have done so in a highly engaging and entertaining style!  This book will be invaluable to investors and their portfolios, not just as first aid, but also as preventive medicine."

Financial First Aid for Canadian Investors - 2010
The financial meltdown has taken a severe toll on the finances of Canadians, and on their confidence in financial and investment advisors.  Canadians need help to learn how to diagnose what is the greatest threat to their long-term financial well-being and to follow a course of treatment to recover.

Financial First Aid for Canadian Investors is for all the battered and bloodied investors whose portfolios are in tatters and who lack direction about what to do next.  By examining the lessons to be learned from mistakes made in both good and bad markets, the authors address the common and recurring investment blunders they have witnessed over many years, and offer a clear prescription for how to repair wounded portfolios.

"I'd categorize Portfolio First Aid as a serious investment primer that has the laudable, if ambitious, goal of raising the sophistication level of the general public."


Portfolio First Aid has the right pedigree as an advice tome on healthy investing.  Covers the bases of portfolio balance, building wealth, investing for income and managing risk.."
