Editorial Reviews

The brothers Tom and David Gardner - co-founders of the investment advisory group "The Motley Fool" - ran a web experiment in which interested investors could track Tom Gardner’s every move as he managed a $1 million portfolio.

Lessons gleaned from that experiment are recounted in this audiobook, narrated by Tom and David themselves. Perfect for rookie investors who want to understand investment theory and see it played out, this audiobook will introduce dividend investing, stock picking, blue-chip bargains, and all that other good, foolish stuff.

Publisher's Summary

In this long-anticipated, groundbreaking guide to building a seven-figure portfolio, acclaimed stock pickers and Internet pioneers David and Tom Gardner lay bare the simple philosophy that they have used to help millions of grateful individual investors outfox the professionals on Wall Street.

The research, the stories, and the results that underpin this audio stem from the revolutionary and wildly successful Motley Fool Million Dollar Portfolio. a one-of-a-kind web experiment in which individual investors follow along as Motley Fool co-founder Tom Gardner invests and manages $1 million of The Motley Fool's own money.

Listeners are offered a first-class education in building, growing, and defending an individual portfolio, one investment strategy at a time. From learning to think like an investor to finding a first stock, from international investing to community-based online tools, this audiobook takes the reader through the essential strategies for building any portfolio, no matter how small its start or how big its ambitions.

Great Introduction to Investing

I tend to like audiobooks read by the authors because you get a sense of the author's passion for the topic. This was no exception. This is great introduction for beginners as well as an excellent way to get a refresher course for those that may have been away from trading for a few years.

My only negative comment is that each chapter ends with what is effectively an advertisement for signing up on their website for fee-based newsletters where you can learn more. I am actually a subscriber to one of their newsletters but I could have done without the ads. After all, I've already paid for the book.

Great for portfolio construction for the laymen

I really enjoyed this book and have listened multiple times over the years. When new investors start asking me questions, I recommend this book. An absolute must read for new (and more experienced) retail investors.

Advertising with solid advice sprinkled in

Felt like the bulk of the book was MF pushing their paid newsletter. However information on how to evaluate stocks were helpful, if a bit outdated.
