    Initial thoughts: Invested is a great book to get readers thinking about their finances, their goals. I loved the approach Danielle took to outlining her financial journey, how it impacted other areas of her life and the lessons that she learnt with regards to investing. I listened to ...

    * One of the best books I have ever read * Largely Phil Town repeating his valuation techniques based on how Warren Buffet value companies but described by Danielle Town who gives valuable insights into common problems new investors face * Danielle writes beautifully and has a wonder...

    This book represents another attempt to cash in on the fame of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger by repackaging their investment philosophy under the guise of a "heartwarming" story about rapprochement between father and daughter. The author's try-hard, juvenile writing style contains ...

    Audiobook. I have given up on this book 2 hours into the Audiobook. Her story is not relatable to me, and the fact that she has gone 2 hours without giving any concrete Warren / Charlie advise is very misleading. So far she has talked about her dad, herself and her flaws. Could...

    I recently read Phil Town?s ?Rule One?. In that book, Town repeatedly tells the reader that he has a simple system to pick winning stocks, but then describes the system using dozens of sub topics, optional research topics, and arcane history. Town?s one rule is actually a compl...

    Hard for me to rate this book, because it's either going to be the most important book I read this year and completely change my life, or it's going to have zero impact and be entirely forgotten (thus the middle of the road three stars). Basically, I need my husband to read it and sign...

    This is my new to-go investing book. Danielle Town has a real ability to present financial information in laymen's terms that I understand. We also both have fathers who desperately want their children to learn to invest. Easy to understand, practical advice on investing with a perspec...

    There is some helpful advice and principles, but they are very basic. And I couldn?t help but be annoyed at the petulance of the author. The actual investing content is very minimal, while the author?s life story and problems are extensively elaborated. I?m sure it?s helpful fo...

    This book is written from the point of view of the novice learning at the foot of the master. In this case, a very bright, educated daughter has finally figured out that she has to make her money work as hard for her as she worked to get that money. And, even though her father has a re...

    An interesting memoir and crash course in value investing. The book is inspiring in that you read about Danielle Town being a completely incompetent dimwit and typical millennial in the realm of personal finance and investing to being a confident investor. The first half of the book is...

    Meh - while the writing is lively and interesting, there is not much of substance in this book for anyone who already read one or two books on investment. It might be a good introduction to the subject, especially for female readers who could connect with the author's story of learning...

    Lots of good info but it was unnerving trying to learn from this book. I found it difficult to trust Danielle's credibility, given that she had also just come to grips with these concepts. Strange mix between investing education and a narrative of her love-life. Full disclosure: I'm a ...

    This book had me at Warren Buffet. I love reading about other people's perspectives with this individual ...

    a good intro to investing book for the millennials. ...

    Great stuff for total beginners in investing Great story told in a really simple and easy way. I recommend it to all investing noobs. Nice way to start a long life in investment :) ...

    With Invested by Danielle Town and Phil Town we find that even if you are a successful lawyer you can still have bills to pay that completely wipe out your paycheck. Watch as Danielle goes from not knowing about inflation to being able to pick and choose her own stocks. Her journey is ...

    Very easy to read simple book with step by step instructions on how to evaluate a set of companies and build a tiny portfolio for the long term and keep are evaluating whether those companies in your portfolio are still worth keeping or should be replaced by other companies. It has exa...

    Danielle town takes us on her financial journey where she learned to invest from her father, Phil Town, and to implement his Rule 1 strategies to gain a better understanding of investing, the market, and how to pick good companies and determine the fair price to pay. The overall ideas ...

    I read this book because I enjoy reading about investing and this was a free download with my WSJ subscription. In all fairness, I am not the target audience for this book, which I believe is a Millennial who is interested in doing their own investing and has no idea where to start, is...

    I am an investing neophyte. Neither of my parents invested in publicly traded companies (as far as I know). Neither of them even had a 401(k) (as far as I know). Instead, they started their own companies and invested in real estate and land. So, I am a total investing neophyte. Reading...

    I ?read? this book mainly by listening to the audiobook while driving. While the story within it was good, the concepts and methods for value investing were a bit lost on me since I wasn?t able to digest those concepts visually. I never expected to be able to get all that I neede...

    This book was so good! I always heard my dad talk about investing, and knew that my grandfather had invested in Coca-Cola and made bank from that years ago, but I never knew quite how complex it all was. I definitely didn't know how to go about learning how to invest. This book is so g...

    Fantastic starter book on investing. I say that with the caveat that I haven't put everything into practice by any means. However, it is straightforward and easy to follow, while also exposing the things it does not cover (who could cover everything in a single book?). It's logically l...

    Initially I started reading this book from the library, and then decided to purchase it. It was just the step by step investing tutorial that I was hoping to find. The book, paired with the podcast and website are great tools to learn various pricing methods and how to recognize a s...

    Amazing! I mean... sometimes, especially in the beginning, you want to shake Danielle and tell her to get over her investing fear. Legit HER OWN FATHER is making money from it and he?s teaching her. So... lets take a chill pill and continue. This book not only will tell you what you...

    For anyone who is considering the overwhelming task of managing their investment assets, this is a great start. Danielle addresses how she overcame her fear of math and embraced the concept of an investment practice. When I first read Phil Town's works (Danielle's father) about 10 ...

    As someone who is not mathematically-inclined, and did not grow up around any discussion of investing, I loved this book. The systematic approach and the way it broke down researching companies and investing really made it sound doable for anyone, not something restricted only to an el...

    This is a great book for beginner investors who want to follow a value oriented strategy. It is great because it goes step by step for all the emotions and processes that someone starting in this game has to take. Most successful investors just jump these steps as obvious, which perhap...

    I think this book is a great primer to buying stocks. The method the author uses is sharing her interactions with her father over a year learning specific topics each month. The last several chapters provide some checklists and things to really ponder before you dive into a stock. The ...

    Danielle town takes us on her financial journey where she learned to invest from her father, Phil Town, and to implement his Rule 1 strategies to gain a better understanding of investing, the market, and how to pick good companies and determine the fair price to pay. The overall ideas ...

    I read this book because I enjoy reading about investing and this was a free download with my WSJ subscription. In all fairness, I am not the target audience for this book, which I believe is a Millennial who is interested in doing their own investing and has no idea where to start, is...

    I am an investing neophyte. Neither of my parents invested in publicly traded companies (as far as I know). Neither of them even had a 401(k) (as far as I know). Instead, they started their own companies and invested in real estate and land. So, I am a total investing neophyte. Reading...

    I ?read? this book mainly by listening to the audiobook while driving. While the story within it was good, the concepts and methods for value investing were a bit lost on me since I wasn?t able to digest those concepts visually. I never expected to be able to get all that I neede...

    This book was so good! I always heard my dad talk about investing, and knew that my grandfather had invested in Coca-Cola and made bank from that years ago, but I never knew quite how complex it all was. I definitely didn't know how to go about learning how to invest. This book is so g...

    Fantastic starter book on investing. I say that with the caveat that I haven't put everything into practice by any means. However, it is straightforward and easy to follow, while also exposing the things it does not cover (who could cover everything in a single book?). It's logically l...

    Initially I started reading this book from the library, and then decided to purchase it. It was just the step by step investing tutorial that I was hoping to find. The book, paired with the podcast and website are great tools to learn various pricing methods and how to recognize a s...

    For anyone who is considering the overwhelming task of managing their investment assets, this is a great start. Danielle addresses how she overcame her fear of math and embraced the concept of an investment practice. When I first read Phil Town's works (Danielle's father) about 10 ...

    This book represents another attempt to cash in on the fame of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger by repackaging their investment philosophy under the guise of a "heartwarming" story about rapprochement between father and daughter. The author's try-hard, juvenile writing style contains ...

    Audiobook. I have given up on this book 2 hours into the Audiobook. Her story is not relatable to me, and the fact that she has gone 2 hours without giving any concrete Warren / Charlie advise is very misleading. So far she has talked about her dad, herself and her flaws. Could...

    I recently read Phil Town?s ?Rule One?. In that book, Town repeatedly tells the reader that he has a simple system to pick winning stocks, but then describes the system using dozens of sub topics, optional research topics, and arcane history. Town?s one rule is actually a compl...

    Hard for me to rate this book, because it's either going to be the most important book I read this year and completely change my life, or it's going to have zero impact and be entirely forgotten (thus the middle of the road three stars). Basically, I need my husband to read it and sign...

    There is some helpful advice and principles, but they are very basic. And I couldn?t help but be annoyed at the petulance of the author. The actual investing content is very minimal, while the author?s life story and problems are extensively elaborated. I?m sure it?s helpful fo...

    This book is written from the point of view of the novice learning at the foot of the master. In this case, a very bright, educated daughter has finally figured out that she has to make her money work as hard for her as she worked to get that money. And, even though her father has a re...

    An interesting memoir and crash course in value investing. The book is inspiring in that you read about Danielle Town being a completely incompetent dimwit and typical millennial in the realm of personal finance and investing to being a confident investor. The first half of the book is...

    Meh - while the writing is lively and interesting, there is not much of substance in this book for anyone who already read one or two books on investment. It might be a good introduction to the subject, especially for female readers who could connect with the author's story of learning...

    Lots of good info but it was unnerving trying to learn from this book. I found it difficult to trust Danielle's credibility, given that she had also just come to grips with these concepts. Strange mix between investing education and a narrative of her love-life. Full disclosure: I'm a ...

    This book is written from the point of view of the novice learning at the foot of the master. In this case, a very bright, educated daughter has finally figured out that she has to make her money work as hard for her as she worked to get that money. And, even though her father has a re...

    An interesting memoir and crash course in value investing. The book is inspiring in that you read about Danielle Town being a completely incompetent dimwit and typical millennial in the realm of personal finance and investing to being a confident investor. The first half of the book is...

    Meh - while the writing is lively and interesting, there is not much of substance in this book for anyone who already read one or two books on investment. It might be a good introduction to the subject, especially for female readers who could connect with the author's story of learning...

    Lots of good info but it was unnerving trying to learn from this book. I found it difficult to trust Danielle's credibility, given that she had also just come to grips with these concepts. Strange mix between investing education and a narrative of her love-life. Full disclosure: I'm a ...

    I read this book because I enjoy reading about investing and this was a free download with my WSJ subscription. In all fairness, I am not the target audience for this book, which I believe is a Millennial who is interested in doing their own investing and has no idea where to start, is...

    I am an investing neophyte. Neither of my parents invested in publicly traded companies (as far as I know). Neither of them even had a 401(k) (as far as I know). Instead, they started their own companies and invested in real estate and land. So, I am a total investing neophyte. Reading...

    I ?read? this book mainly by listening to the audiobook while driving. While the story within it was good, the concepts and methods for value investing were a bit lost on me since I wasn?t able to digest those concepts visually. I never expected to be able to get all that I neede...

    This book was so good! I always heard my dad talk about investing, and knew that my grandfather had invested in Coca-Cola and made bank from that years ago, but I never knew quite how complex it all was. I definitely didn't know how to go about learning how to invest. This book is so g...

    Fantastic starter book on investing. I say that with the caveat that I haven't put everything into practice by any means. However, it is straightforward and easy to follow, while also exposing the things it does not cover (who could cover everything in a single book?). It's logically l...

    Initially I started reading this book from the library, and then decided to purchase it. It was just the step by step investing tutorial that I was hoping to find. The book, paired with the podcast and website are great tools to learn various pricing methods and how to recognize a s...

    Amazing! I mean... sometimes, especially in the beginning, you want to shake Danielle and tell her to get over her investing fear. Legit HER OWN FATHER is making money from it and he?s teaching her. So... lets take a chill pill and continue. This book not only will tell you what you...

    For anyone who is considering the overwhelming task of managing their investment assets, this is a great start. Danielle addresses how she overcame her fear of math and embraced the concept of an investment practice. When I first read Phil Town's works (Danielle's father) about 10 ...

    As someone who is not mathematically-inclined, and did not grow up around any discussion of investing, I loved this book. The systematic approach and the way it broke down researching companies and investing really made it sound doable for anyone, not something restricted only to an el...

    This is a great book for beginner investors who want to follow a value oriented strategy. It is great because it goes step by step for all the emotions and processes that someone starting in this game has to take. Most successful investors just jump these steps as obvious, which perhap...

    Audiobook. I have given up on this book 2 hours into the Audiobook. Her story is not relatable to me, and the fact that she has gone 2 hours without giving any concrete Warren / Charlie advise is very misleading. So far she has talked about her dad, herself and her flaws. Could...

    I recently read Phil Town?s ?Rule One?. In that book, Town repeatedly tells the reader that he has a simple system to pick winning stocks, but then describes the system using dozens of sub topics, optional research topics, and arcane history. Town?s one rule is actually a compl...

    Hard for me to rate this book, because it's either going to be the most important book I read this year and completely change my life, or it's going to have zero impact and be entirely forgotten (thus the middle of the road three stars). Basically, I need my husband to read it and sign...

    This book represents another attempt to cash in on the fame of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger by repackaging their investment philosophy under the guise of a "heartwarming" story about rapprochement between father and daughter. The author's try-hard, juvenile writing style contains ...

    Audiobook. I have given up on this book 2 hours into the Audiobook. Her story is not relatable to me, and the fact that she has gone 2 hours without giving any concrete Warren / Charlie advise is very misleading. So far she has talked about her dad, herself and her flaws. Could...

    I recently read Phil Town?s ?Rule One?. In that book, Town repeatedly tells the reader that he has a simple system to pick winning stocks, but then describes the system using dozens of sub topics, optional research topics, and arcane history. Town?s one rule is actually a compl...

    Hard for me to rate this book, because it's either going to be the most important book I read this year and completely change my life, or it's going to have zero impact and be entirely forgotten (thus the middle of the road three stars). Basically, I need my husband to read it and sign...

    This is my new to-go investing book. Danielle Town has a real ability to present financial information in laymen's terms that I understand. We also both have fathers who desperately want their children to learn to invest. Easy to understand, practical advice on investing with a perspec...

    There is some helpful advice and principles, but they are very basic. And I couldn?t help but be annoyed at the petulance of the author. The actual investing content is very minimal, while the author?s life story and problems are extensively elaborated. I?m sure it?s helpful fo...

    This book is written from the point of view of the novice learning at the foot of the master. In this case, a very bright, educated daughter has finally figured out that she has to make her money work as hard for her as she worked to get that money. And, even though her father has a re...

    An interesting memoir and crash course in value investing. The book is inspiring in that you read about Danielle Town being a completely incompetent dimwit and typical millennial in the realm of personal finance and investing to being a confident investor. The first half of the book is...

    Meh - while the writing is lively and interesting, there is not much of substance in this book for anyone who already read one or two books on investment. It might be a good introduction to the subject, especially for female readers who could connect with the author's story of learning...

    Lots of good info but it was unnerving trying to learn from this book. I found it difficult to trust Danielle's credibility, given that she had also just come to grips with these concepts. Strange mix between investing education and a narrative of her love-life. Full disclosure: I'm a ...

    This book had me at Warren Buffet. I love reading about other people's perspectives with this individual ...

    a good intro to investing book for the millennials. ...

    Great stuff for total beginners in investing Great story told in a really simple and easy way. I recommend it to all investing noobs. Nice way to start a long life in investment :) ...

    With Invested by Danielle Town and Phil Town we find that even if you are a successful lawyer you can still have bills to pay that completely wipe out your paycheck. Watch as Danielle goes from not knowing about inflation to being able to pick and choose her own stocks. Her journey is ...

    Very easy to read simple book with step by step instructions on how to evaluate a set of companies and build a tiny portfolio for the long term and keep are evaluating whether those companies in your portfolio are still worth keeping or should be replaced by other companies. It has exa...

    Danielle town takes us on her financial journey where she learned to invest from her father, Phil Town, and to implement his Rule 1 strategies to gain a better understanding of investing, the market, and how to pick good companies and determine the fair price to pay. The overall ideas ...

    I read this book because I enjoy reading about investing and this was a free download with my WSJ subscription. In all fairness, I am not the target audience for this book, which I believe is a Millennial who is interested in doing their own investing and has no idea where to start, is...

    I am an investing neophyte. Neither of my parents invested in publicly traded companies (as far as I know). Neither of them even had a 401(k) (as far as I know). Instead, they started their own companies and invested in real estate and land. So, I am a total investing neophyte. Reading...

    I ?read? this book mainly by listening to the audiobook while driving. While the story within it was good, the concepts and methods for value investing were a bit lost on me since I wasn?t able to digest those concepts visually. I never expected to be able to get all that I neede...
