Investing isn't a man's world anymore—and that's a good thing for individual portfolios, Wall Street, and the world's financial system.
Warren Buffettand the women of the world have one thing in common: they are better investors than the average man. Psychologists and scientists have shown that women have the kind of temperaments that help them achieve long-term success in the market. For instance, women spend more time researching their investment choices and tend to take less risk than men do, which prevents them from chasing "hot" tips and trading on whims. And women aren't as susceptible to peer pressure as men are, which results in a more levelheaded, patient approach to investing. This book shows that women, with their patience and good decision making, epitomize the Foolish temperament of the most successful investor in the world. It will empower and educate women—and the men smart enough to embrace a "feminine" investing style—on how to strengthen their portfolios and find success in the market.
