<b>#1 <i>New York Times </i>Bestseller</b><br /> <br /><b>鈥淪ignificant...The book is both instructive and surprisingly moving.鈥?鈥?lt;i>The New York Times</i></b><br /> <br /> <b>Ray Dalio, one of the world鈥檚 most successful investors and entrepreneurs, shares the unconventional principles that he鈥檚 developed, refined, and used over the past forty years to create unique results in both life and business鈥攁nd which any person or organization can adopt to help achieve their goals.</b><br /><br />In 1975, Ray Dalio founded an investment firm, Bridgewater Associates, out of his two-bedroom apartment in New York City. Forty years later, Bridgewater has made more money for its clients than any other hedge fund in history and grown into the fifth most important private company in the United States, according to <i>Fortune</i> magazine. Dalio himself has been named to <i>Time </i>magazine鈥檚 list of the 100 most influential people in the world. Along the way, Dalio discovered a set of unique principles that have led to Bridgewater鈥檚 exceptionally effective culture, which he describes as 鈥渁n idea meritocracy that strives to achieve meaningful work and meaningful relationships through radical transparency.鈥?It is these principles, and not anything special about Dalio鈥攚ho grew up an ordinary kid in a middle-class Long Island neighborhood鈥攖hat he believes are the reason behind his success.<br /> <br /> In <i>Principles, </i>Dalio shares what he鈥檚 learned over the course of his remarkable career. He argues that life, management, economics, and investing can all be systemized into rules and understood like machines. The book鈥檚 hundreds of practical lessons, which are built around his cornerstones of 鈥渞adical truth鈥?and 鈥渞adical transparency,鈥?include Dalio laying out the most effective ways for individuals and organizations to make decisions, approach challenges, and build strong teams. He also describes the innovative tools the firm uses to bring an idea meritocracy to life, such as creating 鈥渂aseball cards鈥?for all employees that distill their strengths and weaknesses, and employing computerized decision-making systems to make believability-weighted decisions. While the book brims with novel ideas for organizations and institutions, <i>Principles</i> also offers a clear, straightforward approach to decision-making that Dalio believes anyone can apply, no matter what they鈥檙e seeking to achieve.<br /> <br />Here, from a man who has been called both 鈥渢he Steve Jobs of investing鈥?and 鈥渢he philosopher king of the financial universe鈥?(<i>CIO </i>magazine), is a rare opportunity to gain proven advice unlike anything you鈥檒l find in the conventional business press.

Unfortunately, we often choose poorly. <i>Nudge </i>is about how we make these choices and how we can make better ones. Using dozens of eye-opening examples and drawing on decades of behavioral science research, Nobel Prize winner Richard H. Thaler and Harvard Law School professor Cass R. Sunstein show that no choice is ever presented to us in a neutral way, and that we are all susceptible to biases that can lead us to make bad decisions. But by knowing how people think, we can use sensible 鈥渃hoice architecture鈥?to nudge people toward the best decisions for ourselves, our families, and our society, without restricting our freedom of choice.

<b><i>New York Times</i> best-selling author and comedian-turned-motivational speaker, Kyle Cease, shows how your obsession with money is actually preventing you from living the life of your dreams.</b><br /><br />"I can't afford that." "Now's not the right time . . . I need to save up." "Quit my job? Are you nuts?!" <br />Sound familiar? Money is one of the biggest excuses we make to not go after what we really want. Our fixation with money--the desire for more of it, and the fear of not having enough of it--is often really just a longing to feel safe. But this obsession with money is coming at a much bigger cost: our sanity, our creativity, our freedom, and our ability to step into our true power.<br />This book is about eliminating the need to seek safety through the illusion of money, and learning to see ourselves for the perfection that we are--so that we can bring our gifts to the world in an authentic way, and allow ourselves to receive massive, true abundance as a result.<br />Kyle Cease has heard excuses like the ones above countless times at his live events, and he has shown people how to completely break through them. In <i>The Illusion of Money</i>, he shares his own experiences as well as practical tools to help readers understand their ingrained beliefs and attachments to money, and how they can tap into our infinite assets and talents.<br /><br /><i>"After 25 years as a successful comedian, actor, transformational speaker, author and junior-league amateur bowler, I've experienced many times how chasing money is not an effective way to create an abundant and fulfilling life. The most alive I've ever felt was after I left my comedy career at its peak to become a transformational speaker. I left tons of guaranteed money and so-called security for a complete unknown. It was terrifying--but what was on the other side of that terror was a completely different life that is not only more abundant financially, but has more freedom, more ease, more passion, more impact and more joy."</i> -- Kyle Cease

鈥淚n the dark, bewildering, trap-infested jungle of misinformation and opaque riddles that is the world of investment, JL Collins is the fatherly wizard on the side of the path, offering a simple map, warm words of encouragement and the tools to forge your way through with confidence. You'll never find a wiser advisor with a bigger heart.鈥?-- Malachi Rempen: Filmmaker, cartoonist, author and self-described ruffian<br /><br />This book grew out of a series of letters to my daughter concerning various things鈥攎ostly about money and investing鈥攕he was not yet quite ready to hear.<br /><br />Since money is the single most powerful tool we have for navigating this complex world we鈥檝e created, understanding it is critical.<br /><br />鈥淏ut Dad,鈥?she once said, 鈥淚 know money is important. I just don鈥檛 want to spend my life thinking about it.鈥?This was eye-opening. I love this stuff. But most people have better things to do with their precious time. Bridges to build, diseases to cure, treaties to negotiate, mountains to climb, technologies to create, children to teach, businesses to run.<br /><br />Unfortunately, benign neglect of things financial leaves you open to the charlatans of the financial world. The people who make investing endlessly complex, because if it can be made complex it becomes more profitable for them, more expensive for us, and we are forced into their waiting arms.<br /><br />Here鈥檚 an important truth: Complex investments exist only to profit those who create and sell them. Not only are they more costly to the investor, they are less effective.<br /><br />The simple approach I created for her and present now to you, is not only easy to understand and implement, it is more powerful than any other.<br /><br />Together we鈥檒l explore:<br /><br /><li>Debt: Why you must avoid it and what to do if you have it.</li><br /><li>The importance of having F-you Money.</li><br /><li>How to think about money, and the unique way understanding this is key to building your wealth.</li><br /><li>Where traditional investing advice goes wrong and what actually works.</li><br /><li>What the stock market really is and how it really works.</li><br /><li>Why the stock market always goes up and why most people still lose money investing in it.</li><br /><li>How to invest in a raging bull, or bear, market.</li><br /><li>Specific investments to implement these strategies.</li><br /><li>The Wealth Building and Wealth Preservation phases of your investing life and why they are not always tied to your age.</li><br /><li>How your asset allocation is tied to those phases and how to choose it.</li><br /><li>How to simplify the sometimes confusing world of 401(k), 403(b), TSP, IRA and Roth accounts.</li><br /><li>TRFs (Target Retirement Funds), HSAs (Health Savings Accounts) and RMDs (Required Minimum Distributions).</li><br /><li>What investment firm to use and why the one I recommend is so far superior to the competition.</li><br /><li>Why you should be very cautious when engaging an investment advisor and whether you need to at all.</li><br /><li>Why and how you can be conned, and how to avoid becoming prey.</li><br /><li>Why I don鈥檛 recommend dollar cost averaging.</li><br /><li>What financial independence looks like and how to have your money support you.</li><br /><li>What the 4% rule is and how to use it to safely spend your wealth.</li><br /><li>The truth behind Social Security.</li><br /><li>A Case Study on how this all can be implemented in real life.</li><br /><br />Don鈥檛 let any of this intimidate you.
