Author(s): Hawes, Martin
This book will spell out the main principles of investment which are for all time and all times. It doesn't matter what country you live in, or what tax rules you follow, the fundamental principles of investment remain the same. People who are investing (nearly everyone, whether they realise it or not) ignore any of these principles at their peril. Yet, depending on economic times and individual circumstances, they are frequently ignored.
