Bibliographic information


"The Women's Guide to Successful Investing is almost like getting Nancy Tengler to manage your investments. Her 'Intelligent Investing Rules' combine the best of Warren Buffet, Benjamin Graham, and John Bogle, but Nancy's approach is easier to understand and implement. This is a great handbook for any investor, man or woman." - Dr. John Rutledge, Professor, Claremont Graduate University, Chief Investment Strategist, Safanad, Author, Lessons from a Road Warrior, former Presidential Advisor

"This book fills a gap for those of us who know how to make money, but know less about how to invest it. As Tengler points out: women tend to live longer, and investing our assets sensibly is the only way to maximize our hard-won success and retire comfortably." - Susan Varga, COO, Kudlow & Co., LLC, Radio Producer, nationally-syndicated "The Larry Kudlow Show"

"In The Women's Guides to Successful Investing, Tengler shares her secrets for busy women who know very well how to make money but now want to learn how to invest it. Since an enormous percentage of women will at some point oversee the family wealth, increasing their knowledge and comfort with the process will grow the balance sheets of families across America. And that benefits us all. A must read for mothers and grandmothers and daughters and wives and every man who knows a woman." - Dr. Arthur Laffer, Founder and Chairman of Laffer Associates, former economic advisor to President Ronald Reagan

"This book should be required reading for everyone, beginning in high school. Tengler possesses the marvelous ability to explain complex financial concepts in everyday language. There are excellent references throughout for additional in-depth study as well as lifelong financial planning tools." - Peter Allison, President and Founder, IDM LabTrack Inc. and IDM AgriTrak Inc., Lecturer, Arizona State University W. P. Carey Graduate School of Business

"Nancy has de-mystified the complex subject of stock investing, and her tremendous passion for empowering and encouraging women to start investing comes through on every page as she shares her own investing strategies, both the wildly successful ones and her 'learning opportunities.'' - Sharon Lechter, CPA CGMA, Author of Think and Grow Rich for Women, Co-author of Outwitting the Devil, Three Feet From Gold, and Rich Dad Poor Dad

"Nancy Tengler spent decades developing the timeless investing principles she shares in The Women's Guide to Successful Investing. Men and women alike can benefit from these time-proven investing principles. I highly recommend buying the book, studying the principles, and applying them to your investing."

- Horace "Woody" Brock, Ph.D., President, Strategic Economic Decisions, Inc., New York

"Nancy Tengler spent over twenty years managing the money of some of the nation's largest corporations and wealthiest families. I only wish she had written this book twenty years ago when I was first learning to invest. Buy it. Read it. And share these treasures with the women you know and value." - Mary Ryan, Director of Operations, Strategic Economic Decisions, Inc., New York
