One of the blogs that has helped me enormously in my quest for financial education is jlcollinsnh.com. His ‘stock series’ is enormously helpful for people such as my good self who are deathly afraid of numerals, yet know that somehow we have to overcome our fears and start to understand them.
Although he’s based in the US, most of the articles in the series are applicable to our system here in Australia, so it’s a terrific starting point for those of us who are trying to get our heads around what shares/stocks, bonds, REITS and suchlike are all about.
Around a year ago Jim Collins released a book based on his stock series, bringing together all of the information on the blog in a streamlined, better-organised format. It’s called ‘The Simple Path to Wealth‘ and it’s my go-to book when I want to look something up. I don’t know how many times I’ve recommended it to people and I did a review of it on my other blog when Jim was kind enough to send me an advance copy to review.
Well…. guess what? This could be your lucky day! Jim has offered to give two lucky readers of this blog an Audiobook version of his book. All you have to do to be in the draw is to leave a comment on this post explaining why you’d like to be included, and at the end of the school holidays I’ll put the names in a hat and draw a couple of winners.
I’m very excited about this giveaway. May the best wo/men win!
