Read this or lose another 12% in the market

You can read books that promise you a 12% return with valid calculations to back it up. It is called backtesting. But actually, there is a catch that almost nobody can verify on their own. If you don’t want to be one of them then read and learn the skills.

What this book will teach you

Financial books assume that you, the reader, don’t have the possibility to do more than validate the given calculations in the book. This is true for almost everyone. But if you don’t want to be blinded by fancy calculations, which are optimized to give big returns, then read this book.
