In a highly readable and engaging style, this paperback edition of Mark Shipman's classic book takes readers step-by-step through every aspect of disciplined and lucrative investing. Starting with the how and why of taking responsibility for your money, it goes on to describe specific investment strategies that Shipman has used himself with great success. In the second half of the book, the commodity markets are described in detail, an area he himself predicts as a major investment opportunity that could last well over a decade. Both those new to investing and those looking to brush up their skills will find sound and solid advice on: how long-term investing works; why investing is a mental game; how to develop a personal investment strategy and why you should invest in commodities. The Next Big Investment Boom will not only show you how to avoid making bad investments, but also how to make the right investments, at the right time, and make a significant amount of money.
