Small Change- Investment Made Simple
SMALL CHANGE : INVESTMENT MADE SIMPLE tells you how to grow your nest egg simply by adjusting your approach to making investments. Goh Eng Yeow, who has spent decades around financial markets and writing about investing, reveals why some people make millions while others fail badly; how financial disasters can be golden opportunities for those with the right attitude; and how to apply common sense in making investment picks.

In 30 incredibly easy-to-read chapters, we learn how to, among other things, get lucky by thinking positive; find your way out of a financial maze; adopt an investment strategy for all seasons; go on the trail of smart money. Also not to let emotions cloud your judgment; or to invest by numbers; or bank on the "greater fool" theory.

As Magnus Bocker says of this book, Goh Eng Yeow makes the important distinction between investing and speculating. This he does by using anecdotes including his own investment history. An inspirational book that can be read in one sitting, before making the next New Year's resolution on growing your money.
