But other, more-generous souls might — which is where this book comes in.
Like other financial bloggers, I occasionally receive copies of books from publishers and agents who ask for, in return, nothing more than a review of the work.
Reviewing books is nothing new for me (note all my previous financial book reviews), although it is something I haven't done in a while. (In market parlance, one could say that I'm bearish on free time.)
With any luck, I'll soon be reviewing Lowell Miller's The Single Best Investment: Creating Wealth With Dividend Growth and posting it amongst my stash of other reviews. So far, I've found the book to be very readable, and quite interesting. Maybe not earth-shattering, especially to those of you who are familiar with the various benefits of dividend-paying stocks, but that doesn't mean it's not a valuable read.
There was a time — the mid- to late-90's, actually — when I absolutely devoured stock-market and investment book after book. Peter Lynch ... Warren Buffett .. and then on to 500-pound tomes covering chart-reading and technical analysis. Ahh ... such fond Bubble memories.
