Summary, etc.:
"Since leaving his job as a ... stock analyst to become an investing columnist, Jakab has watched his readers--and his family, friends, and colleagues--make the same mistakes again and again. He set out to evaluate the typical advice people get, from the clearly risky to the seemingly safe, to figure out where it all goes wrong and how they could do much better"--Dust jacket flap.
