BOOK GIVEAWAY: Larry Swedroe’s “Think, Act, and Invest Like Warren Buffett”

January 7, 2013

Larry Swedroe sent me an email this weekend about his new book. I downloaded a copy from Amazon and gave it a quick read (it’s a fairly small book at 160 pages). It’s not your typical Warren Buffett book. Larry uses Bueffett’s own words to illustrate the importance of passive investing. Those who think this will be a stock-picker’s book will be disappointed.

Regardless, I thought it was worth sharing through a giveaway.


Here’s your chance to win your very own copy. Just leave a comment below to let me know you’re in. I’ll announce the winner on Wednesday morning. Please be mindful of my two rules:

1. You must be a residend of North America (I won’t ship internationally).


2. You can only enter one time.

BY THE WAY… I’m hoping to score an interview with Larry. If you have an investing/financial planning question for him, please send it to me via email (JLP – at – with “Question for Larry Swedroe” in the subject line. I’ll pass along as many as I can for Larry to answer (assuming he has time to get to them).

Have a great week!

  25. Good way to promote the book . Still interested.

  26. Question: Index mutual funds or Index ETFs?

    Question: How much diversification among stocks is enough diversification for retirement savings? I have a 20 year horizon until retirement. Is it enough to put all of my retirement stock (not bond funds) assets in a total market index fund and maintain no other stock assets for retirement?

    What other asset classes should I be looking at? REITs? International funds? Emerging market funds? Commodity funds? Are these necessary if I put the whole nut in a total market index fund?
