An industry outsider takes on Bay Street

“Gail Bebee is a financial industry outsider who has self-published a book that novice and not-so-novice Canadian investors can benefit from. It’s called No Hype - The Straight Goods on Investing Your Money and that’s a pretty accurate description.”

A crisp and concise investment primer

“It’s a good, comprehensive overview -- written in a crisp and concise way. She knows her topic well, as might be expected from someone familiar with the rigors of university learning (she has an undergraduate degree in science and a graduate degree in engineering). Even for more experienced investors, it could be a handy reference guide to have in the home library to serve as a reminder of the basic things one needs to keep in mind about investing.”
Larry MacDonald.

“A newbie investor would find the book invaluable as no prior familiarity with investing is assumed. Ms. Bebee starts with the basics (rule of 72, compounding etc.), talks about service providers such as financial advisors, progresses to asset classes, dishes out the dirt on cash, bonds, stocks, mutual funds, ETFs etc. and finally discusses RRSPs, RESPs and model portfolios.” (Complete review here)
