Timely Investor Guidance Offered in Investing in UNCERTAIN Times, a New Book by Tanglewood Wealth Management's John and Brian Merrill


Tanglewood Wealth Management, Inc. today announces the release of Investing in UNCERTAIN Times by John and Brian Merrill. 

Investors may be excused if they would like to press a “do over” button with regard to the markets since the turn of the millennium in 2000.  The markets have been a roller coaster ride to nowhere.  Huge advances occurred followed by devastating declines that left the major U.S. stock indexes no higher at the end of 2011 than they were at the end of 1999.

Investors' frustration has been reinforced by an equally uncertain economic and political environment:  unemployment, China, Europe, financial crisis, deleveraging, debt and deficits, political gridlock and zero interest on savings.

Investing in UNCERTAIN Times provides the answer to what investors should do in such a period of poor markets and difficult backdrop.

Following on the traditions set in The Sure Road to Investment Success (2007) and Outperforming the Market, McGraw-Hill (1997), the book brings together the authors' benchmark analysis and historical risk/reward perspective with a special focus on the tumultuous markets and economic uncertainty of our current era. 

What the experts have to say about Investing in UNCERTAIN Times:
