Selling Snake Oil
The cases are as real as the victims that lay in their waste. But most important are the eternal lessons they left behind. This book is as entertaining as it is actionable, with every story offering readers another layer of protection in their efforts to ward off the charlatans of the future.
You will travel from the shores of Antigua to the farms of Ontario, from the Eifel Tower to small-town America and into the sanctuaries of Wall Street. The stories will carry you across the broadest gamut of geographic and historical narratives. All of which, with the singular objective of helping you avoid the next snake-oil salesman.

The Quest for Better Investment Decisions

Given the range of inferior options in the industry, many people are [rightfully] overwhelmed by the prospect of investing their capital.

In Search of the Prime Quadrant articulates our investing philosophy in a way that all people, regardless of financial background, can understand.
