The Value of Simple: A Practical Guide to Taking the Complexity Out of Investing [by John Robertson]

This book is mainly geared to my Canadian readers but I prefer to share the knowledge with everyone. The Value of Simple is a plain-language how-to guide to investing for Canadians by John Robertson.

Control what can be controlled; minimize fees and effort. Investing doesn’t have to be complex to be successful. Keep it simple and you will succeed. With a focus on developing good processes to minimize the room for human error and step-by-step instructions, the book will walk you through the elements of managing your finances for the long term.

Therefore PMH Canadian readers, you have no excuse as to why you’re not investing. There’s an entire how-to guide dedicated to helping you to invest.
