The Only Other Investment Guide You'll Ever Need

Andrew P. Tobias, Author Simon & Schuster $17.45 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-64166-5
Financial adviser Tobias here updates The Only Investment Guide You'll Ever Need to cover 1986 tax-law and other financial and investment changes of the last decade. In an amusing, even sassy style he extols budget-keeping (""your mom is worried'') and explains how bank accounts, credit cards, mortgages, insurance ``products,'' IRAs and so on operate. Regarding more substantial investments, the author writes of Wall Street perils, but also sees rich possibilities of great wealth. Seemingly every type of investment is covered here: from U.S. bonds (safe but dull), penny stocks (fun but risky) and Iowa farmland to comic books and baseball cards. Few readers will fail to find something they've always wanted to knowe.g., how to read the fine print, make a savvy charity donation or back a Broadway show.
