LAR's FEATURED BOOK-OF-THE-MONTH

THE WOMEN'S GUIDE TO SUCCESSFUL INVESTING

Achieving Financial Security and Realizing Your Goals

By NANCY TENGLER

Women control over half of the nation's personal wealth, own businesses that grow at one and a half times the national average and—when they don't excuse themselves from participating—outperform men in the realm of investing. Why, then, do the vast majority of women consistently claim they lack the confidence and/or expertise to make financial decisions?

THE WOMEN'S GUIDE TO SUCCESSFUL INVESTING tackles this outmoded problem by handing women the tools they need to make savvy investment decisions and watch their money grow. Drawing on over twenty years of experience as a wealth advisor, CEO, mother, and wife, Tengler delivers advice about building a rational, reliable investment portfolio. Investing, she writes, is not gambling. And it's not rocket science. In fact, the value-based approaches employed by the most successful investors will resonate with women who manage their own finances and households. Filled with fascinating case studies and engaging, personal stories of financial management, Tengler entertains as she educates. As a part of her eleven clear-cut "intelligent investing rules", Tengler tells women how to reap financial rewards by identifying sound companies that have been overlooked by other investors. In THE WOMEN'S GUIDE TO SUCCESSFUL INVESTING, Tengler has provided a sort of investing de-coder ring—a straight-forward guide to buying stocks for the long-term.

Tengler has written a book for any woman who wants to gain the skills and know-how for financial independence. Studies have consistently demonstrated women's keen aptitude in the realm of investing. All that's missing is a simple, accessible roadmap for forging your path. THE WOMEN'S GUIDE TO SUCCESSFUL INVESTING is just that.

About the Author
Nancy Tengler spent two decades as a professional investor managing billions of dollars of other people's money. Along the way she met very smart women who were not only disengaged from the management of their wealth but didn't seem at all concerned about it. As a result, raising women's financial IQs has become her passion. Her career as a wealth advisor spans more than twenty years. She has worked as a Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer, overseeing the management of tens of billions of dollars globally. She has been named one of Money Magazine's Best Women Investors. She also has been a regular guest host on CNBC and a frequent guest on PBS, CNN, CBS, NBC, Bloomberg TV. In addition to her contributions to financial news sites like Examer.com and Yahoo! Finance, Nancy writes a weekly investing column for women entitled "Your Financial IQ" published in The Arizona Republic and spends her time in Paradise Valley, AZ and Incline Village, NV with her husband, three dogs and elderly horse. She can be reached at nancy.tengler@cox.net or follow her blog at http://nancytengler.com

ADVANCE PRAISE FOR
"THE WOMEN'S SUCCESSFUL GUIDE TO INVESTING"

"The Women's Guide to Successful Investing is almost like getting Nancy Tengler to manage your investments. Her 'Intelligent Investing Rules' combine the best of Warren Buffet, Benjamin Graham, and John Bogle, but Nancy's approach is easier to understand and implement. This is a great handbook for any investor, man or woman."
- Dr. John Rutledge, Professor, Claremont Graduate University, Chief Investment Strategist, Safanad, Author, Lessons from a Road Warrior, former Presidential Advisor

"This book fills a gap for those of us who know how to make money, but know less about how to invest it. As Tengler points out: women tend to live longer, and investing our assets sensibly is the only way to maximize our hard-won success and retire comfortably."
- Susan Varga, COO, Kudlow & Co., LLC, Radio Producer, nationally-syndicated "The Larry Kudlow Show"

"In The Women's Guides to Successful Investing, Tengler shares her secrets for busy women who know very well how to make money but now want to learn how to invest it. Since an enormous percentage of women will at some point oversee the family wealth, increasing their knowledge and comfort with the process will grow the balance sheets of families across America. And that benefits us all. A must read for mothers and grandmothers and daughters and wives and every man who knows a woman."
- Dr. Arthur Laffer, Founder and Chairman of Laffer Associates, former economic advisor to President Ronald Reagan

"This book should be required reading for everyone, beginning in high school. Tengler possesses the marvelous ability to explain complex financial concepts in everyday language. There are excellent references throughout for additional in-depth study as well as lifelong financial planning tools."
- Peter Allison, President and Founder, IDM LabTrack(TM) Inc. and IDM AgriTrak(TM) Inc., Lecturer, Arizona State University W. P. Carey Graduate School of Business

"Nancy has de-mystified the complex subject of stock investing, and her tremendous passion for empowering and encouraging women to start investing comes through on every page as she shares her own investing strategies, both the wildly successful ones and her 'learning opportunities."
- Sharon Lechter, CPA CGMA, Author of Think and Grow Rich for Women, Co-author of Outwitting the Devil, Three Feet From Gold, and Rich Dad Poor Dad

"Nancy Tengler spent decades developing the timeless investing principles she shares in The Women's Guide to Successful Investing. Men and women alike can benefit from these time-proven investing principles. I highly recommend buying the book, studying the principles, and applying them to your investing."
- Horace "Woody" Brock, Ph.D., President, Strategic Economic Decisions, Inc., New York

"Nancy Tengler spent over twenty years managing the money of some of the nation's largest corporations and wealthiest families. I only wish she had written this book twenty years ago when I was first learning to invest. Buy it. Read it. And share these treasures with the women you know and value."
- Mary Ryan, Director of Operations, Strategic Economic Decisions, Inc., New York
