Reviews Worth Noting:

"[As] stocks have surged and bond yields have dwindled, investors increasingly ask "Why bother with bonds?" Rick Van Ness takes this question and runs with it in his book sporting this provocative title. Sooner or later, this question will answer itself, and it will behoove all investors to get to know Rick before it does. Read it, enjoy it, and profit from it-before it's too late."
William J. Bernstein
Author, The Four Pillars of Investing

"In his simply stated and entertaining book, Rick Van Ness eloquently instructs the reader on how to do bonds right - in fact, better than any single book I've read."
Allan S. Roth
Author: How a Second Grader Beats Wall Street

"If you are a DIY investor . . . you should read this book. It will steer you clear of areas you need to avoid and into where you should be. A quick read filled with valuable info!"
Robert Wasilewski

"This book should be part of America's high school curriculum."
Andrew Hallam
Author: Millionaire Teacher
