From the Back Cover
Transform your fear of money. Discover financial freedom. And invest in your values and yourself along the way.
When she was growing up, Danielle Town never liked the words finance, stocks, or portfolio. The daughter of the successful investor and bestselling financial author of Rule #1, Phil Town, she spent most of her adult life avoiding investing--until she found herself stuck in an all-consuming legal career where she felt both her money and her life were out of control. Determined to regain her financial freedom and put her money to work in a socially responsible way, Danielle asked her father to help her take charge of her future by teaching her Warren Buffett-style value investing. What began as a series of conversations between them eventually turned into a yearlong investing plan and the hit personal-finance podcast InvestED. Over the course of that year, Danielle went from being an extremely reluctant investor to knowing exactly how and when to invest in wonderful companies, with a little--okay, a lot--of advice and help from her dad.
In Invested, Danielle tells the entertaining and educational story behind her personal life-changing journey to financial freedom. She lays out the twelve-month plan that she developed with her father, creator of the successful "Rule #1 Investing" method, to practice step-by-step the principles of value investing handed down from the wisdom of value-investment legends Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, and she shows how those principles will reshape your finances and your relationship to money. With regular conversations and guidance from her financial-guru father, Danielle comes to understand that, despite her fears, investing to create wealth isn't about risking money, it's about not losing it. Avoiding overly complicated math and obscure financial models, she turns her father's deep investing knowledge into her own successful investing practice and, in the process, masters the difficult emotions many of us have about money and the stock market.
Capturing how our feelings about money in the present often interfere with having a more prosperous future, Invested makes the complex world of investing simple, straightforward, and approachable, and will help you gain confidence and strategies to formulate your own plan for financial freedom--and put your money where your values are.--JJ Virgin, bestselling author of The Virgin Diet

As an avid fan of the Rule One podcast, I loved reading about the evolution of both Phil and Danielle Town's relationship getting better through the practice of investing. For anyone who has listened to the podcasts, you can see just how much she has developed as an investor which is a lovely aspect to read about. From all the investing books I have read I like the focus of the narrative on transforming one's self through the commitment to the practice. Furthermore for anyone who has read Guy Spiers book on the Education of a value Investor the narrative flows as beautifully in this book as it does in his. For anyone who has not read Guy's book I strongly recommend you go on to reading it after reading Danielle's Invested: you will certainly be a better person for it. The principles of value investing go far wider than investing in stocks and can help educate you on multiple aspects of your life.
Overall a truly wonderful book to read and I must thank both Danielle and Phil for taking their time to educate individuals like myself.
I’ve followed the podcast and struggled with its lack of focus when looking to recommend it to friends - this book is the perfect solution. It tells a great story of Danielle and her fathers relationship in a way that is truly relatable and helps take away the guilt and shame of not knowing the questions to ask or being afraid to ask them about how to invest.
This is a great book for anyone looking to learn about investing - even if they didn’t think they’d ever need to learn about it. The concepts still require work from the reader if they are truly new to business to be able to learn, but the book gives presents the path for the reader to walk along with Danielle on her journey. I highly recommend this book!
Could be condensed into 2-3 chapters of value investing knowledge, but the story around makes it hard to take concise notes and focus on the investing part.
Good start for someone who wants to read a story and take away some great value.
Thanks for the great read guys 🙄
Well done danielle town and phil town
I highly recommend it!
