Investors face a potential financial crisis if they fail to make better decisions today. Perhaps this helps to account for the surprising results of a recent survey which found that one of every four retirees considers life in retirement to be worse than it was before they retired. The survey further showed that one of every three investors had lost trust in their advisor, while two thirds did not believe their advisor had done a good job of managing their assets during the last market downturn. Hopefully, the experience with your advisor has been different, but there is absolutely no excuse for you not to have an understanding of these fundamental principles. This book is intended to help you understand the importance of some of the critical and essential issues of investment portfolio construction, as well as to enlighten you on what to look for in an investment advisor and investment allocation. The success of your investments or lack thereof will end up affecting you and your family's lives far more than just the financial impact.

"It was my duty to write this book because I have two children in their twenties facing, like all their peers, the most difficult labor market since the Great Depression. I act on my responsibilities because I belong to a certain generation of the Western Left who believed that they could improve society using the market and globalization. I wanted to browse my family album, with a bit of the Italian left, to understand the reasons for our defeat, then open a new page. Plutocracy, technocracy, populism, and authoritarianism are the evils that threaten our democracies. Italy is a small laboratory riddled with these pathogens. Having lived decades as a globalized nomad in Europe, America, Asia, I have the duty to say what happened to my country's image. From my observation post in the Far West, I can tell what the costs of the Berlusconi era are. Is there still hope? Drawing on my experiences in emerging countries, from Asia to Brazil, I have concluded that our way out of these problems lies to our left."

A masterful novel of political progressives making their way and not in an ever-changing postwar America. For Marty Dworkin and his band of young Trotskyist dreamers in Buffalo, New York, the vision of a just, socialist world crumbles with the rise of Stalin and the chaos of World War II. In the two decades that follow, Dworkin and his idealistic colleagues strive to establish a new political party and battle through unexpected trials with family, work, aging, and the changing world. They run up against an increasingly conservative America and a thriving materialism directly opposed to their own fervent beliefs. They emerge humbled, but still hopeful, into the 1960s, when civil rights struggles and anti-war radicalism move to center stage. Standing Fast is a classic, panoramic portrait of life amid the shattered dreams and visionary ambitions of the American left.

In the early 1900s, a Kansas schoolteacher named Nellie Howard delighted in receiving postcards from her many friends. She cherished each one, preserving her collection in a jewelry box. The jewelry box, handed down through generations, still houses what is now a museum-quality collection of exquisite Victorian postcards. A century after Nellie Howard received them, friends can once again share her beloved postcards. In From the Heart to My Friend, the beautifully rendered images from Nellie's collection are reproduced in authentic detail and presented with warm verses and quotes on the universal theme of friendship. The postcards whose artwork is captured in this unique book were created by talented artists, many of them women, during the Golden Age of Postcards, from 1898 to 1918. The accompanying text, from books of the same period, is both fittingly nostalgic and strikingly relevant to today's sensibilities. The result is a lovely and meaningful gift to be treasured for a lifetime, and a fascinating artifact of vintage Americana.

The Death of a Much-Travelled Woman is the third book in the Cassandra Reilly Mystery series, which begins with Gaudi Afternoon and Trouble in Transylvania, and concludes with The Case of the Orphaned Bassoonists.
