I'm 27, and I am employed by you in the US Navy.

Congrats on law school and good luck with the DA job.

I just finished reading Four Pillars of Investing by William Bernstein. It was very apologetic about using any math at all, but I was impressed over all.

Four Pillars had a lot to say about risk tolerance. Typically these books have some throw away line about how young people should have a higher stock allocation, and that's it. This one explained with historical examples the practical result of a generation being invested beyond their risk tolerance and resultant panic when that tolerance was actually tested.

I'm going to find Intelligent Asset Allocator next, which seems likely to be more math heavy.
