As I waited for the bus this morning, I was reading RB,RM. Also waiting at the bus stop was a disheveled street person- ratty clothes, unshaven, etc. He asked me what I was reading. I held up the book and said it was about investing in the stock market. And he replies, slightly slurring his words:

"The way to invest in the stock market is, you put together some money, say a thousand bucks, that you don't need right now, and you put it in some stock, and you forget about it for five years or so. That's the way to make some money."

Foolishness is everywhere, my friends.

Jacob,

Great story! It makes me realize we didn't even deserve the book deal!

It's great to see the spread of common sense.

Hope you're enjoying the book,

Tom

IceFool,

Welcome to Fool.com. I think you'll find that the community dialogue here about saving and investing is far more rewarding than our simple book! Hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Fool on, Fool.
