A Small Reading Recommendation
We realize that your time (and probably desire) to learn about investing is unfortunately limited. Perhaps you are post-call and simply procrastinating when you should be calling your parents or finishing up your clinic notes.
Regardless, we applaud you for your enthusiasm and even though we don't have any content built out for this portion of the site we do have a recommendation that you put on your "to-read" list.
It's one of the best books ever written for those with limited time who want to begin to learn about investing and saving for retirement. It's more of a pamphlet than a book, and most of you can finish it (except for the assigned homework!) in 20 minutes.
It's called If You Can. How Millennials Can Get Rich Slowly, written by William J. Bernstein. Best of all, it's available as a free PDF at that link. Alternately, you can do a web search on the title and find a free version for your e-reader.
It's important to note that no one here at DOCTORED MONEY has any financial relationship with Doctor Bill Bernstein, or his book (yes, he is a “former” MD and PhD). But this has NOT influenced our recommendation.
Bernstein is a very talented writer, historian, and investment theorist who has researched and understands evidence-based investing and presents it in a way which is readily accessible. If You Can should be everyone's first stop on the road to personal investment education. At least until Doctored Money can supplant it. Any day now.
