Siegel provides a detailed discussion of investing for the long run, 30 years or more. He explains dividends, bonds, financial gains and losses while citing historical evidence from his analysis of the stock market, or more specifically the Dow, from 1957 to the present. Stephen Hoye takes this potentially dry topic and adds some spice, reading slowly enough that the details are retained by the listener. Siegel's explanations of the impact Baby Boomers' retirement will have on the market, his main focus, is fascinating; however, his book is not for people just starting to invest. Demographics, history, and informed investing are the key topics, and Hoye reads each word with determination and clarity. M.B.K. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 06]
