Bestselling author and financial blogger, Dan Solin, provides real do-it-yourself investors the means to create a dynamic-and safe- portfolio that mimics those constructed for some of the major institutional and trust investors in the country. Readers can maintain complete control over their money-and not sacrifice precious points to an advisor or broker.

Using a strategy that minimizes volatility and maximizes returns, Solin makes investing according to the principles of the most sophisticated financial models accessible to individuals in a way that has never been possible before.

As readers have come to expect from Solin, implementing this plan is as simple as one, two, three: open an account with a discount broker; determine the appropriate asset allocation using the simple questionnaire in the book or online; input pre-determined ETFs (Exchange Traded Funds) and the allocations for the level of the investor's individual risk profile.

This is the only book that provides the information and practical guidance that readers need to achieve the very best results with the minimum risk, on their own .

It's a quite useless book I've read recently. No insight at all. If you need real guidance, I say look somewhere else.

Very good book! If you are an investor who likes to buy-and-hold and not devote much time to monitoring your investments then this is the book for you.
The basis of his portfolio(s) is the Fama-French three-factor model which shows that most of a portfolio's returns come from Small Cap Value stocks.
If you can't, or don't want, to follow the Smartest Portfolio, he also gives other Smartest Portfolios using either Target Date funds, ETFs, or Index funds.
