Through a selection of enduring "principles" for investing, developed over three decades of experience, Glassman gets to the emotional core of money's role in our overall definition of success and happiness. At the same time, she demystifies the investment process by illuminating each lesson with actual examples and investor experiences, and guides you on how to put them to use.
When you reflect on what you truly value in your life, does it come down to money? If you had an hour to live, how would you describe the extraordinary moments of your life? Perhaps you would talk about some of your accomplishments, experiences and people who have meant the most to you. Maybe you would share some great stories. But would you focus on money? What do you think?

And if you are already an investor, the wisdom here will realign your mind and accelerate your journey to financial success."
