    Initial thoughts: Invested is a great book to get readers thinking about their finances, their goals. I loved the approach Danielle took to outlining her financial journey, how it impacted other ares of her life and the lessons that she learnt with regards to investing. I listened to i...

    I recently read Phil Town?s ?Rule One?. In that book, Town repeatedly tells the reader that he has a simple system to pick winning stocks, but then describes the system using dozens of sub topics, optional research topics, and arcane history. Town?s one rule is actually a compl...

    There is some helpful advice and principles, but they are very basic. And I couldn?t help but be annoyed at the petulance of the author. The actual investing content is very minimal, while the author?s life story and problems are extensively elaborated. I?m sure it?s helpful fo...

    This book represents another attempt to cash in on the fame of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger by repackaging their investment philosophy under the guise of a "heartwarming" story about rapprochement between father and daughter. The author's try-hard, juvenile writing style contains ...

    This book is written from the point of view of the novice learning at the foot of the master. In this case, a very bright, educated daughter has finally figured out that she has to make her money work as hard for her as she worked to get that money. And, even though her father has a re...

    An interesting memoir and crash course in value investing. The book is inspiring in that you read about Danielle Town being a completely incompetent dimwit and typical millennial in the realm of personal finance and investing to being a confident investor. The first half of the book is...

    Meh - while the writing is lively and interesting, there is not much of substance in this book for anyone who already read one or two books on investment. It might be a good introduction to the subject, especially for female readers who could connect with the author's story of learning...

    Lots of good info but it was unnerving trying to learn from this book. I found it difficult to trust Danielle's credibility, given that she had also just come to grips with these concepts. Strange mix between investing education and a narrative of her love-life. Full disclosure: I'm a ...

    This book had me at Warren Buffet. I love reading about other people's perspectives with this individual ...

    a good intro to investing book for the millennials. ...

    Great stuff for total beginners in investing Great story told in a really simple and easy way. I recommend it to all investing noobs. Nice way to start a long life in investment :) ...

    With Invested by Danielle Town and Phil Town we find that even if you are a successful lawyer you can still have bills to pay that completely wipe out your paycheck. Watch as Danielle goes from not knowing about inflation to being able to pick and choose her own stocks. Her journey is ...

    I read this book because I enjoy reading about investing and this was a free download with my WSJ subscription. In all fairness, I am not the target audience for this book, which I believe is a Millennial who is interested in doing their own investing and has no idea where to start, is...

    I am an investing neophyte. Neither of my parents invested in publicly traded companies (as far as I know). Neither of them even had a 401(k) (as far as I know). Instead, they started their own companies and invested in real estate and land. So, I am a total investing neophyte. Reading...

    This book was so good! I always heard my dad talk about investing, and knew that my grandfather had invested in Coca-Cola and made bank from that years ago, but I never knew quite how complex it all was. I definitely didn't know how to go about learning how to invest. This book is so g...

    Fantastic starter book on investing. I say that with the caveat that I haven't put everything into practice by any means. However, it is straightforward and easy to follow, while also exposing the things it does not cover (who could cover everything in a single book?). It's logically l...

    As someone who is not mathematically-inclined, and did not grow up around any discussion of investing, I loved this book. The systematic approach and the way it broke down researching companies and investing really made it sound doable for anyone, not something restricted only to an el...

    This is a great book for beginner investors who want to follow a value oriented strategy. It is great because it goes step by step for all the emotions and processes that someone starting in this game has to take. Most successful investors just jump these steps as obvious, which perhap...

    I think this book is a great primer to buying stocks. The method the author uses is sharing her interactions with her father over a year learning specific topics each month. The last several chapters provide some checklists and things to really ponder before you dive into a stock. The ...

    The good: - Good primer on value investing - Easy read - Doing the maths exercises really taught me something - The personal narrative added a nice touch and made the book easy to read from cover to cover Why only 3 stars: - Sells false hopes: 15% return annually - Authors not...

    Part memoir, part actual investing advice from a seemingly regular (privileged) family. Very easy to read and follow. Tackles the biggest hesitation: fear. This is definitely written for beginners by a beginner. I borrowed the book from the library but I may buy it so I can have time t...

    Audiobook. I have given up on this book 2 hours into the Audiobook. Her story is not relatable to me, and the fact that she has gone 2 hours without giving any concrete Warren / Charlie advise is very misleading. So far she has talked about her dad, herself and her flaws. Could...

    This book provided another perspective on Rule #1 investing with the real story of a daughter and father. It was as much about parental relationship as market investing. With so many "experts" sharing their story in books, it was very refreshing to see investing from a novice point of ...

    Written for the novice investor or even someone "investor curious", this easy-to-understand combination of primer and personal odyssey is relatable and informative. Redundant where it needs to be, the book has inspired me to read Benjamin Graham and other leaders of the value investing...

    One Ladies thought on how her Dad and his mentors Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger. Why having anybody manage your money is a fools bet. She asserts you can do it yourself. It's not easy, it's not quick but she maintains it is effective. Has me rethinking my investments, inherited CDs ...

    Initial thoughts: Invested is a great book to get readers thinking about their finances, their goals. I loved the approach Danielle took to outlining her financial journey, how it impacted other ares of her life and the lessons that she learnt with regards to investing. I listened to i...

    I recently read Phil Town?s ?Rule One?. In that book, Town repeatedly tells the reader that he has a simple system to pick winning stocks, but then describes the system using dozens of sub topics, optional research topics, and arcane history. Town?s one rule is actually a compl...

    There is some helpful advice and principles, but they are very basic. And I couldn?t help but be annoyed at the petulance of the author. The actual investing content is very minimal, while the author?s life story and problems are extensively elaborated. I?m sure it?s helpful fo...

    This book represents another attempt to cash in on the fame of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger by repackaging their investment philosophy under the guise of a "heartwarming" story about rapprochement between father and daughter. The author's try-hard, juvenile writing style contains ...

    This book is written from the point of view of the novice learning at the foot of the master. In this case, a very bright, educated daughter has finally figured out that she has to make her money work as hard for her as she worked to get that money. And, even though her father has a re...

    An interesting memoir and crash course in value investing. The book is inspiring in that you read about Danielle Town being a completely incompetent dimwit and typical millennial in the realm of personal finance and investing to being a confident investor. The first half of the book is...

    Meh - while the writing is lively and interesting, there is not much of substance in this book for anyone who already read one or two books on investment. It might be a good introduction to the subject, especially for female readers who could connect with the author's story of learning...

    Lots of good info but it was unnerving trying to learn from this book. I found it difficult to trust Danielle's credibility, given that she had also just come to grips with these concepts. Strange mix between investing education and a narrative of her love-life. Full disclosure: I'm a ...

    a good intro to investing book for the millennials. ...

    Great stuff for total beginners in investing Great story told in a really simple and easy way. I recommend it to all investing noobs. Nice way to start a long life in investment :) ...

    With Invested by Danielle Town and Phil Town we find that even if you are a successful lawyer you can still have bills to pay that completely wipe out your paycheck. Watch as Danielle goes from not knowing about inflation to being able to pick and choose her own stocks. Her journey is ...

    I read this book because I enjoy reading about investing and this was a free download with my WSJ subscription. In all fairness, I am not the target audience for this book, which I believe is a Millennial who is interested in doing their own investing and has no idea where to start, is...

    I am an investing neophyte. Neither of my parents invested in publicly traded companies (as far as I know). Neither of them even had a 401(k) (as far as I know). Instead, they started their own companies and invested in real estate and land. So, I am a total investing neophyte. Reading...

    This book was so good! I always heard my dad talk about investing, and knew that my grandfather had invested in Coca-Cola and made bank from that years ago, but I never knew quite how complex it all was. I definitely didn't know how to go about learning how to invest. This book is so g...

    Fantastic starter book on investing. I say that with the caveat that I haven't put everything into practice by any means. However, it is straightforward and easy to follow, while also exposing the things it does not cover (who could cover everything in a single book?). It's logically l...

    As someone who is not mathematically-inclined, and did not grow up around any discussion of investing, I loved this book. The systematic approach and the way it broke down researching companies and investing really made it sound doable for anyone, not something restricted only to an el...

    This is a great book for beginner investors who want to follow a value oriented strategy. It is great because it goes step by step for all the emotions and processes that someone starting in this game has to take. Most successful investors just jump these steps as obvious, which perhap...

    I think this book is a great primer to buying stocks. The method the author uses is sharing her interactions with her father over a year learning specific topics each month. The last several chapters provide some checklists and things to really ponder before you dive into a stock. The ...

    The good: - Good primer on value investing - Easy read - Doing the maths exercises really taught me something - The personal narrative added a nice touch and made the book easy to read from cover to cover Why only 3 stars: - Sells false hopes: 15% return annually - Authors not...

    Part memoir, part actual investing advice from a seemingly regular (privileged) family. Very easy to read and follow. Tackles the biggest hesitation: fear. This is definitely written for beginners by a beginner. I borrowed the book from the library but I may buy it so I can have time t...

    Audiobook. I have given up on this book 2 hours into the Audiobook. Her story is not relatable to me, and the fact that she has gone 2 hours without giving any concrete Warren / Charlie advise is very misleading. So far she has talked about her dad, herself and her flaws. Could...

    This book provided another perspective on Rule #1 investing with the real story of a daughter and father. It was as much about parental relationship as market investing. With so many "experts" sharing their story in books, it was very refreshing to see investing from a novice point of ...

    Written for the novice investor or even someone "investor curious", this easy-to-understand combination of primer and personal odyssey is relatable and informative. Redundant where it needs to be, the book has inspired me to read Benjamin Graham and other leaders of the value investing...

    One Ladies thought on how her Dad and his mentors Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger. Why having anybody manage your money is a fools bet. She asserts you can do it yourself. It's not easy, it's not quick but she maintains it is effective. Has me rethinking my investments, inherited CDs ...

    Written for the nomenclature of a Millennial/Gen-Z perspective which can help a novice reading and trying to understanding from basic steps. Focused a little bit too much on the story vs the analysis but good starting point for a beginning investor. ...

    Comprehensive in depth meaty way to invest long term. Good stuff but Danielle tone is that of a clueless girl from the movie and an academic approach from a smart girl who acts dumb then smart which comes across as disingenuous as she plays down her intelligence. ...

    Well written and well organized book and personal account by the author Danielle Town. If you enjoyed her dad's books on Value Investing, you'll love to read how she mastered handling money as a tool for investing long-term. I enjoyed the read! ...

    I rounded up from 2 1/2 stars. Entry level or new investors would probably find this useful. Geared towards long term investments, I feel. Strategy focuses on an overall up market and some ideas of when to get out. ...

    This book is written from the point of view of the novice learning at the foot of the master. In this case, a very bright, educated daughter has finally figured out that she has to make her money work as hard for her as she worked to get that money. And, even though her father has a re...

    An interesting memoir and crash course in value investing. The book is inspiring in that you read about Danielle Town being a completely incompetent dimwit and typical millennial in the realm of personal finance and investing to being a confident investor. The first half of the book is...

    Meh - while the writing is lively and interesting, there is not much of substance in this book for anyone who already read one or two books on investment. It might be a good introduction to the subject, especially for female readers who could connect with the author's story of learning...

    Lots of good info but it was unnerving trying to learn from this book. I found it difficult to trust Danielle's credibility, given that she had also just come to grips with these concepts. Strange mix between investing education and a narrative of her love-life. Full disclosure: I'm a ...

    I am an investing neophyte. Neither of my parents invested in publicly traded companies (as far as I know). Neither of them even had a 401(k) (as far as I know). Instead, they started their own companies and invested in real estate and land. So, I am a total investing neophyte. Reading...

    This book was so good! I always heard my dad talk about investing, and knew that my grandfather had invested in Coca-Cola and made bank from that years ago, but I never knew quite how complex it all was. I definitely didn't know how to go about learning how to invest. This book is so g...

    Audiobook. I have given up on this book 2 hours into the Audiobook. Her story is not relatable to me, and the fact that she has gone 2 hours without giving any concrete Warren / Charlie advise is very misleading. So far she has talked about her dad, herself and her flaws. Could...

    This book provided another perspective on Rule #1 investing with the real story of a daughter and father. It was as much about parental relationship as market investing. With so many "experts" sharing their story in books, it was very refreshing to see investing from a novice point of ...

    Written for the novice investor or even someone "investor curious", this easy-to-understand combination of primer and personal odyssey is relatable and informative. Redundant where it needs to be, the book has inspired me to read Benjamin Graham and other leaders of the value investing...

    One Ladies thought on how her Dad and his mentors Warren Buffet and Charlie Munger. Why having anybody manage your money is a fools bet. She asserts you can do it yourself. It's not easy, it's not quick but she maintains it is effective. Has me rethinking my investments, inherited CDs ...

    Written for the nomenclature of a Millennial/Gen-Z perspective which can help a novice reading and trying to understanding from basic steps. Focused a little bit too much on the story vs the analysis but good starting point for a beginning investor. ...

    Comprehensive in depth meaty way to invest long term. Good stuff but Danielle tone is that of a clueless girl from the movie and an academic approach from a smart girl who acts dumb then smart which comes across as disingenuous as she plays down her intelligence. ...

    Well written and well organized book and personal account by the author Danielle Town. If you enjoyed her dad's books on Value Investing, you'll love to read how she mastered handling money as a tool for investing long-term. I enjoyed the read! ...

    Initial thoughts: Invested is a great book to get readers thinking about their finances, their goals. I loved the approach Danielle took to outlining her financial journey, how it impacted other ares of her life and the lessons that she learnt with regards to investing. I listened to i...

    I recently read Phil Town?s ?Rule One?. In that book, Town repeatedly tells the reader that he has a simple system to pick winning stocks, but then describes the system using dozens of sub topics, optional research topics, and arcane history. Town?s one rule is actually a compl...

    There is some helpful advice and principles, but they are very basic. And I couldn?t help but be annoyed at the petulance of the author. The actual investing content is very minimal, while the author?s life story and problems are extensively elaborated. I?m sure it?s helpful fo...

    This book represents another attempt to cash in on the fame of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger by repackaging their investment philosophy under the guise of a "heartwarming" story about rapprochement between father and daughter. The author's try-hard, juvenile writing style contains ...

    This book is written from the point of view of the novice learning at the foot of the master. In this case, a very bright, educated daughter has finally figured out that she has to make her money work as hard for her as she worked to get that money. And, even though her father has a re...

    An interesting memoir and crash course in value investing. The book is inspiring in that you read about Danielle Town being a completely incompetent dimwit and typical millennial in the realm of personal finance and investing to being a confident investor. The first half of the book is...

    Meh - while the writing is lively and interesting, there is not much of substance in this book for anyone who already read one or two books on investment. It might be a good introduction to the subject, especially for female readers who could connect with the author's story of learning...

    Lots of good info but it was unnerving trying to learn from this book. I found it difficult to trust Danielle's credibility, given that she had also just come to grips with these concepts. Strange mix between investing education and a narrative of her love-life. Full disclosure: I'm a ...

    This book had me at Warren Buffet. I love reading about other people's perspectives with this individual ...

    a good intro to investing book for the millennials. ...

    Great stuff for total beginners in investing Great story told in a really simple and easy way. I recommend it to all investing noobs. Nice way to start a long life in investment :) ...

    With Invested by Danielle Town and Phil Town we find that even if you are a successful lawyer you can still have bills to pay that completely wipe out your paycheck. Watch as Danielle goes from not knowing about inflation to being able to pick and choose her own stocks. Her journey is ...

    I read this book because I enjoy reading about investing and this was a free download with my WSJ subscription. In all fairness, I am not the target audience for this book, which I believe is a Millennial who is interested in doing their own investing and has no idea where to start, is...

    I am an investing neophyte. Neither of my parents invested in publicly traded companies (as far as I know). Neither of them even had a 401(k) (as far as I know). Instead, they started their own companies and invested in real estate and land. So, I am a total investing neophyte. Reading...

    This book was so good! I always heard my dad talk about investing, and knew that my grandfather had invested in Coca-Cola and made bank from that years ago, but I never knew quite how complex it all was. I definitely didn't know how to go about learning how to invest. This book is so g...

    Fantastic starter book on investing. I say that with the caveat that I haven't put everything into practice by any means. However, it is straightforward and easy to follow, while also exposing the things it does not cover (who could cover everything in a single book?). It's logically l...

    As someone who is not mathematically-inclined, and did not grow up around any discussion of investing, I loved this book. The systematic approach and the way it broke down researching companies and investing really made it sound doable for anyone, not something restricted only to an el...

    This is a great book for beginner investors who want to follow a value oriented strategy. It is great because it goes step by step for all the emotions and processes that someone starting in this game has to take. Most successful investors just jump these steps as obvious, which perhap...

    I think this book is a great primer to buying stocks. The method the author uses is sharing her interactions with her father over a year learning specific topics each month. The last several chapters provide some checklists and things to really ponder before you dive into a stock. The ...

    The good: - Good primer on value investing - Easy read - Doing the maths exercises really taught me something - The personal narrative added a nice touch and made the book easy to read from cover to cover Why only 3 stars: - Sells false hopes: 15% return annually - Authors not...
