Empower Your Investing: Adopting Best Practices of John Templeton, Peter Lynch and Warren Buffett

I am excited to announce that Empower Your Investing­: Adopting Best Practices of John Templeton, Peter Lynch, and Warren Buffett, which is published by Post Hill Press is now available! More than 25 years ago I began studying and researching the best practices of the greatest investors of all time. In this book, I am sharing my findings in an accessible book that I believe will be invaluable for both beginners and professionals.

Investing is a life skill and, like any life skill, the key is to learn from those who have already done it well.  Empower Your Investing­: Adopting Best Practices of John Templeton, Peter Lynch, and Warren Buffett offers a success-based framework, discipline, and toolkit for investing success.

This book illustrates how John Templeton, Peter Lynch, and Warren Buffett became successful investors; reviews their winning stocks with key takeaways for today’s investor; compares and contrasts the three master investors; and integrates their best practices into a successful investment process. Their best practices can become a compass for your investment journey.
